Firefox creates an extension to protect your email from spam


Mozilla has introduced Private Relay, a new Firefox service that protects your email account to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands, spamming you, or using your email for malicious purposes. We tell you what exactly this extension offers you to improve your privacy.

How many web pages and online services ask you to enter your email to register? Every time you create an account on a portal or request information, it is usual that you have to enter your email address. In this way, the company behind this service can contact you, and in the worst case, your email falls into the hands of cyber criminals who use it for malicious purposes. 

To avoid these problems, Mozilla has released a Firefox extension that protects your email account whenever you have to enter it in a web form. The service is called Private Relay and what it does is generate a unique alias that hides your email address. Thanks to this, neither advertisers nor criminals will have access to your real mail.

The operation of this Firefox add-on is very simple. Once activated, when the user has to fill in a web form, instead of providing the actual email address, they can create a unique alias in one click. Each alias is used only once. 

Then, what Private Relay does is forward the emails that reach the different aliases to the user’s real address. In the event that any of them start receiving spam, the user can disable or completely eliminate it quickly and easily. 

At the moment, Private Relay is in beta where you can participate by invitation only, so it is not yet available to all users. If you would like to try the service, you can sign up on the official website to see if Mozilla sends you an invitation. It will soon be available to everyone.
