Anonymous Email Services – Do’s and Don’ts

• Always use a secure browser that anonymizes your IP address for accessing anonymous messages. Be sure your browser is updated regularly.
• Do not access more than one account in a single browser session, and never access named accounts, such as Google or Yahoo in the same session.
• Do not include personal details in your communication that could be used to identify you, such as your name, phone numbers, or addresses.
• Use public WiFi for additional anonymity and never repeat usernames or passwords. Remember, no set of tools can guarantee online anonymity.

Using an Anonymous Email Account

Anonymous email services can be used to send personal or work-related messages without leaving a trace of your identity. Truly anonymous email accounts require no personal information to register and retain little usage data. Anonymous email accounts should always be accessed and used in conjunction with an anonymous IP address.
