    Keep your email safe from hackers and trackers. Make an email alias with 1 click, and keep your address to yourself.

    While we provide a Firefox extension that makes generating an alias a click away, you're not dependent on Firefox specifically: you can generate and access your generated alias through the web interface at https://relay.firefox.com in any browser.

  • GitHub repo SimpleLogin

    The SimpleLogin back-end

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo Firefox Send

  • GitHub repo send

  • GitHub repo AnonAddy

    Anonymous email forwarding

  • GitHub repo burner-email-providers

    A list of temporary email providers

    We're actively reaching out to maintainers of such lists (see e.g. [1]) to get us removed, and take a number of measures to make that more palatable (see also [1]). And of course Relay is a bit different from services like Mailinator, where email addresses are usually actually single-use: Relay addresses remain active until their owner actively disables them. Possibly in the future it might also be possible to bring your own domain, but I don't think we have any concrete plans for that that we can share.

    That said, no solution is perfect, and I expect that there will likely always be situations where you will be forced to fall back to a regular email address.
