Disposable Temporary Email Service

What can you use the app for?

GuerrillaMail is a temporary email application which can be used to protect you from spam on the internet. Unlike many of the other temporary email applications on the internet it is possible to use it to choose your temporary email address rather than being given an automatically generated one. The emails are active for one hour and any messages can be accessed through the website. It is possible to extend the life of the mailbox should you need more time, however it’s not as convenient as many other services as it’s not forwarded to your mail box.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

GuerrillaMail is a free service like many of the other temporary email services on the internet. It’s fairly popular and the site claims to be in use by over 8000 people every single day. Since its creation GuerrillaMail has processed over 267,786,370 emails.

What are the differences to other apps?

Unfortunately, Guerrillamail does not offer mail forwarding to your current email address. This does have its advantages, however, in that keeping the two separate will mean that you will never get bombarded with spam. You are also able to reply to messages should you need to which is very different to other services. If you need the email address for longer than the given hour then it’s possible to renew it by clicking a link. This makes it a useful site for receiving one email but it's not useful when you need a temporary address for a week. There are more sophiticated tools available if you need more features.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

It’s very easy to use Guerrillamail; you don’t even need to register for an account. You can either choose your email address, or choose to use a randomly created one. Whichever you choose you will be guided through the process which will make it particularly easy to use. If you are after temporary email addresses then this will be one of the easiest to use systems that you will ever come across.

How does the registration process work?

There is no need to register to use and create a temporary email address. You just need to either choose the email address that you want to use, or select to use a random address. Whichever option you choose you will be presented with your mailbox where you can check out for new messages. This does not forward your messages to your own mailbox so you won’t have a record of them, you can however reply to messages if you wish.

What does it cost to use the application?

Guerrillamail is a completely free application to use; there do not appear to be any adverts on site. Guerrillamail offers a way to make sure you’re not exposed to spam.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Guerrillamail is perfect for anyone that’s looking for a way to avoid spam on the internet while still being able to sign up to all of the services that they want. If you have a problem with spam then you should consider Guerrillamail. The application is exceptionally handy for signing up for limited time offers and coupons, as you don't have to worry about marketers sharing your email address.
