In the eventuality that you grew tired of having to use your mail email address to create accounts for various websites just to see the content and afterwards be spammed, then perhaps it's time to consider an email alias. Polycred for Firefox is a tool designed to increase your email privacy by generating email aliases and hence, help you keep the spam to a minimum.
Before you can get started, first you need to create an account with the developer and have the latest version of Firefox installed on your system. Once you are done with these two quick steps, you can generate email aliases right away with just one click of a button.
The newly generated email addresses can be found under the Email section so pick one and use it to register to the desired domain. If you want to make things even more convenient, then go to the Settings and mark the Show Polycred button on email fields so that you can select it easier.
While creating a fake address is child's play, you must be wondering what is going to happen to domains that require validation or confirmation. You will be happy to learn that the tool forwards this type of emails directly to the inbox of the email used for creating the Polycred account. These emails are marked and easy to spot, so you can deal with them fast and smooth.
More importantly, if your alias email starts receiving spam or has been leaked online, you are able to determine the culprit right away. Moreover, the alias email can be deleted without you having your main address exposed.
All in all, Polycred for Firefox is a user-friendly extension that enables you to conveniently generate alias emails you can use instead of your mail address so that you can keep your inbox free of spam.
