Mozilla’s handy new Firefox extension generates burner email addresses on-demand
Are you a Firefox user? Have you heard that Mozilla has launched a new email relay service called Firefox Private Relay? The idea is to provide an ’email alias’ wherever a company or a service asks for your email address, so that you can avoid giving out your actual address and protect your identity.
The product is currently in the testing stage and only available as a browser extension for Firefox. Plus, you’ll have to request an invite on the site to get it.
The inner workings of this product are similar to what Sign in with Apple does while requiring an email ID. However, just to be clear, this is not a sign-in service.
