Email technology provider mxHero has released a new plugin that allows email users to define new email aliases on the fly, which increases security by preventing excessive proliferation of personal information.
The plugin, called Instant Alias, allows users to define an email alias by adding a special character and arbitrary text to the real email address. When a user creates a profile on a website for example, that individual email address could be modified from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Given the frequency in which email databases are stolen from even the most reputable firms, it is no wonder that many users feel the need to manage multiple accounts as protection from over exposing ones private email address. mxHero’s Instant Alias is an easier solution for email anonymity.”
