How to get rid of Junk Emails by creating a Disposable Email address

  • When you are on a web page and about to fill in your email address to avail of any kind of service, you have to enter your actual email, but you have to add a specific tag in your original email. For example, if your Gmail address is abcxyz@gmail.com, then you have to add a plus sign in the beginning: +abcxyz@gmail.com. The addition of the plus tag in the email makes the emails visible that come from that address. And when you receive an email on this address, they look alone from other messages available in the inbox. In that way, it becomes easy to locate and delete such emails.
  • If you have received emails on that address, you can create a Gmail filter to remove such emails automatically. To make a Gmail filter, enter that tag in the Gmail search bar and tap the right side’s drop-down arrow. Type the tag in the From section and hit the Create Filter button.
  • On the next page, checkmark the Delete It box and then tab Create Filter once again. Now all the emails coming from that customized email will be deleted automatically.
  • Visit the official site of Burner Mail and hit the Install Burner Mail for Chrome button. You can also download the extension from the Chrome Store. If you use Firefox, you can use this extension for the same. After installing the extension, you will have a Burner Mail icon in the top right of the browser’s window.
  • Now an email field will appear to you for filling. So, hover over it, and the Burner Mail icon will appear, and a temporary email address will be generated automatically. Next, you have to select this new email and fill it in the field. Now your Gmail account will receive forwarded emails from this custom email. You can stop it whenever you want.
  • After using the disposable email as long as you need, choose the Burner email icon to find your created emails. A turn on/off toggle button will appear that has an option called Block Sender. Disable the email address using the toggle button and all emails will be blocked. You can create five emails with a free account and 30 with a premium one.
  • If you don’t want to show the actual email, you should use an auto-provided address while replying to those emails.
