Email Guard allows you to use one mailbox with many faces. You control all Email Guard link-addresses and their behavior. You never have to give out your actual email to anyone. If any link-address misbehaves, you can easily dispose of it. Email Guard reduces the stress that is associated with users sharing emails. Go crazy with your Email Guard: Go to a conference and avoid the uncomfortable “No”, participate in those sweepstakes and always stay in control.
When email was invented at the dawn of the Internet, the Internet was a very different and much friendlier place. Trusting all participants was implicit. This is also reflected in the base infrastructure of how email systems are constructed.
Today users no longer rush to give out their email addresses and can expect their email box to fill up quickly after they have created a new one. Managing this has turned into a chore that only seems to be a loosing proposition for the average user.
As soon as they start giving out their email address, they are subject to discovery, bundling and aggregation by data-brokers. With or without privacy regulations, these shady middlemen are trading in email-addresses and the email systems are flooded with messages.
An aliasing and abstraction solution like Email Guard is proven to be an important element of privacy protection according to USA Today.
