Are there E-Mail proxy services to improve privacy and security?
Confidentiality in the sense that it is not necessary to give a website its username (perhaps even in the form firstname.lastname@example.org) and in a sense of the security that the email used cannot be used to log into the email service (which makes it useless for a password leaked, since the email address cannot be used to log in).
email@example.com could be someone's email. If there was a Google Privacy / Proxy service, then we could generate as many random emails as possible and if we received spam or a leak, it could be disabled:
could both redirect mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One could be blocked / disabled / deleted if you wish without giving up the real account (for example, because
email@example.com has been compromised or spam is sent to it).
Would this really improve security and privacy? Or am I missing something?
And does such a service exist? (as a bonus, replying to such proxy emails would be even better, converting the real account
from to proxy email address)
