Mozilla’s new Firefox service, Private Relay, will generate random email addresses for online forms to protect users from advertisers and spammers. The service began testing last month and is currently in a closed testing phase, with plans for public testing later this year.
Private Relay will be available as a Firefox extension, and users can generate random addresses with just one click. Many websites require users to provide email addresses, such as subscribing to newsletters.
Mozilla says it forwards messages from random email addresses to the user’s real mailbox, which users can delete if the message they receive is spam.
