Temporary email address can help preserve your privacy


Your email address has become the lingua franca of the digital world. Want to read a story on a news site? Post a comment in a forum? Get a discount coupon? There’s a good chance you’ll be required to register with an email address.

But there is often to requirement that it be your primary address. If you want to avoid the chance that your personal or work address will be added to somebody’s span database, consider getting a temporary email address from a site like Correotemporal.

The website will instantly generate an email address that stays live and viable for 10 minutes. All you have to do is click the bar on the site’s home page that says “Create your temporary disposable e-mail now.”

You can’t miss that bar - it’s almost the only thing on the page. There’s an “About Us” button, but it leads to a placeholder page, so I can’t tell you anything about the people or company behind this service.

But I do know that a temporary email address can be a very useful thing to have when you don’t want or need to share your primary address.

Check out the service for yourself at the Correotemporal website.
