Burner Mail Premium Review: Burner Mail protects your real email address behind disposable burner addresses. It does the job, but some competitors do a lot more to protect your privacy.
Whenever you don’t feel like receiving emails from a specific sender anymore, simply block that address and the spam goes away. Burner Mail forwards your emails to your personal account while keeping your inbox and identity secure and private.
- Easily creates and manages unlimited burner (disposable) email addresses.
- Can forward to multiple real-world addresses.
- Online mailbox available.
- Two-factor authentication.
- Thorough onboarding.
- No support for browsers other than Chrome and Firefox.
- Expensive for what it does.
StartMail is another service that aims to protect your email privacy. The big difference is, you must switch your email address to a StartMail account. That does mean that you’re protected from, say, Google as well, but changing is inconvenient. StartMail doesn’t provide unlimited disposable addresses, but it does let you create 10 aliases that server somewhat the same purpose. At $59.95 per year, it’s double the price of Burner Mail.
I should point out that using disposable email addresses doesn’t protect your messages against man-in-the-middle attacks or other interference. For that, you’d need an encrypted email service like ProtonMail.
