You’ve either heard about disposable email and used the service a few times or you’re just now learning of its existence. This service allows to receive email at a temporary address that self-destructs after a certain time elapses. No password or sign-up is required. It is also known by names like :10minutemail, tempmail, throwaway email, fake email or trash-mail, which all just so happen to be the top services out there.
See, some blogs, websites and retailers ask visitors to register before they can view content, post comments or download something. But that can lead to unwanted emails. And the fact that spam today is more dangerous than ever only compounds this issue.
This has been my go-to for a while now. Simply go to Tempemail.co’s homepage and choose a name for your disposable email address and type it into the box labeled “view-this-mailbox.” It can be anything you want, but make it memorable so it’s easy to come back to. When ready, click the “Go” button.
You will then be taken to your inbox. It will be empty if no one has ever used that address before. As expected, common ones already have mailed in them. Whenever you don’t want to give out your real email, you can use your Tempemail.co email address and any email sent to that address will go straight to your Tempemail.co inbox.
My main reason for using this one over its competition is the reusability it offers. You might want to refer to a said mail later and you can do so on this service.

This is another popular disposable email provider. It is simple to use. You’ll see your autogenerated email address that is valid you 10 minutes when you go to the website and up top. It is your inbox below.
Continue and sign up to the service you want and the verification code will be mailed to this address. You will see the mail in the inbox window soon. This service offers you the option to reset the 10 minutes if you need to use the temporary address longer. However, once you close the window, your mailbox is gone. A different mail will be generated when you come visiting again.
Temp Mail actions is pretty much like any other disposable mail service. However, the timed one is unlike. Temp Mail doesn’t have a self-distruct timer. The randomly allocated email address is active as long as the web-page is open.
Temp Mail allows you to install browser extension to your Firefox or Chrome for a one-click access to a randomly generated email address. This could prove invaluable for people that find themselves visiting and signing up to so many websites during their workflow.
It is important to note that these disposable mails may not exactly be acceptable to some high security websites. For example, you might not want to have one of these as your secondary email address for recovering your password should you forget it. As most of the domains offered by Temp Mail services have been blacklisted, some websites might still ask you to provide a valid email address.
