Spam, that annoying, sometimes criminal practice, is older than the internet itself, but Burner Emails is a tool that finally gives users a way to fight back. The browser extension gives users the ability to control precisely which platforms and services have access to their email account, stanching spam emails at the source.

Spam emails come about as a result of people giving out their email addresses when signing up for various websites. The obvious solution would be to give out fake email addresses every time, but most sites require activating one's account by clicking an email. Burner Emails generates virtual email addresses that forward all mail to one's real account but can be shut down if spam starts coming in.
