What is email alias

26 FEB 2021

Before we start with email relay or email alias, let's understand why we need it.

When was the last time you checked if you had been a victim of a data breach? Research shows only 5% of the internet users care about their data.

People like Jillian York, Richard Stallman, Samer Hassan are constantly protesting against this. This is because these patrons are aware of the importance of private data and how it can have a major impact on people’s lives.

Some of us know how they got our data, but we are only 1% of the internet consumer. Other 99% get on to the internet to make their life easier better. It could be their small business, travel, entertainment, online order, or social networking.

Privact is dead, and social media holds the smoking gun.

Consume and Trade

Today, Few big companies have a monopoly over the internet because they control the data of people. Although these companies do not trade users' data directly, it gets public if a breach happens.

We, as a consumer, install and sign up on many apps where we allow apps to read our friend lists, including emails, phone numbers, and their profile details. We permit them to fetch these data from us, and we get a few free credits.

Avoid privacy violation with email alias.

A relay mail or email alias is a functionality where you can create aliases of your email and select the domain of your choice. We relay all the emails which come to your email alias to your email account. You will have a wide range of options like relay emails from only certain domains as a user. Relay email is entirely free, and we are launching an email send option in the coming months to send an email with your email alias id.
