The more I use MaskMe, the more impressed I am with it. It’s a really good password manager, but it does something that password manager don’t do: Whenever you’re signing up for something that requires your email address, MaskMe will generate a disposable email address which you can use to sign-up for something without giving anyone your real email address. If and when the site you signed up for sends you email, MaskMe will forward it to you. If you don’t want email from that site, just have MaskMe block all future emails from them by clicking “This is spam”. That’s cool. No more spammy emails, no one has your real address (except MaskMe, and even then no one from MaskMe can see it because it’s stored encrypted — and only your password can un-encrypt it.
What I like about MaskMe is that whenever a site asks for my email address, MaskMe pops up and asks if I want to Mask My Email or use my real address. It takes zero extra time and MaskMe will create an infinite number of masked email address for you — and all emails sent to your masked addressed can be tagged as spam and you will never get another mail from that sender.
MaskMe does other great things too — it’s a decent password manager, which keeps getting better and better and better. And if you want to spend $45 a year, you can mask your credit cards, phone numbers and more. If you’re happy just masking your emails and having a good password manager, then the free version will work for you just fine.
MaskMe is an extension for Chrome and Firefox browsers, and it works on Windows, Android and Apple — so you can use it on just about any internet-connected device you own. Unfortunately, Internet Explorer users, there’s no MaskMe extension for you.
We highly recommend you give the free version of MaskMe a try – we think you’ll find it very useful.
We’ll let the developers tell you a little about MaskMe now:
If you ever give out your information online, stop now and add MaskMe to your browser. Between high-profile hacks and the NSA scandal, it’s clear the Internet is a place where our daily activities are recorded, shared, and linked together to tell an incredibly detailed story. The radical solution is to simply stop giving out your personal information. This is the promise of MaskMe, announced today after a year of development effort from privacy company, Abine, Inc., makers of DoNotTrackMe, currently used every day by more than three million people in 50 countries around the world.
MaskMe literally “masks” your personal information, including your email address, phone number, and even credit card number by creating disposable aliases that work with users existing email, phone, and credit cards. Add MaskMe to your browser, and whenever you sign up for a website, a coupon or daily deal, or shop online, MaskMe instantly allows you to give masked information in one click. With Abine’s patent-pending technology, emails forward to your existing inbox and calls and texts forward to your phone so you never miss important communications. However, because a website doesn’t have your real information, you are in charge and can block them from contacting you at any time. MaskMe is smart and shows up when users need it, like when a website asks for your email address, but gets out of your way when you don’t want to use it. It also includes additional features that make browsing faster and easier, such as secure account storage and auto-fill. MaskMe is immediately available at abine.com for Firefox and Chrome browsers and for Apple iPhone and iPad and Google Android devices.
It costs you nothing to take MaskMe for a test drive. We think you’ll really like it. Get more information about MaskMe and/or get get MaskMe from here.
Remember MaskMe works with Chrome and Firefox browsers only. It works on Windows, Apple and Android devices.
