This article will discuss anonymous email, the best-encrypted email service, and how to set up an anonymous email account and write an anonymous email.

Email providers like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, AOL, etc., constantly monitor user conversions. You probably don't want them to know what's in your message. Setting up an anonymous email for your private conversations is important.

So, we'll discuss anonymous email, what we think are the best-encrypted email services, how to set up an anonymous email account, and how to write anonymous emails.

Why do you need an anonymous email?

You probably send and receive emails every day. However, a lot of what you receive is spam.

For example, Cisco's Talos Intelligence Group reported Global Email and Spam in November 2019 that the average daily spam volume for the month was 412.19 billion. The volume of spam is much higher, compared to an average of 70.69 billion legitimate messages per day.

Another problem is phishing. According to Small Business Trends (https://smallbiztrends.com/2019/07/phishing-statistics.html), 1 out of every 99 emails contains a phishing attack. Phishing is one of the main reasons why businesses lose millions of dollars to cyberattacks.

Suppose an email containing sensitive information about yourself, your family, an organization, or a client is sent over an insecure channel. If someone intercepts your conversation, you're in trouble.

That's why you should send anonymous emails if you want to keep your privacy intact and not reveal any sensitive information.

Anonymous emails are emails that do not contain any personal information and cannot be traced back to you.

How to create an anonymous mailbox without revealing your IP address?

Before you can enjoy the privacy of anonymous email and protect the privacy of your information, you need to create an account.

There are several ways to create anonymous email accounts and send anonymous emails. One way is to use a disposable email or burner email account. It's really a one-time-use email, and since most people don't have the option to receive a reply, it's perfect if you want to send an anonymous email quickly.

However, we think using an encrypted email provider is a better solution. Liverado is a secure, end-to-end encrypted email service provider that never tracks your IP address and is 100% anonymous.

If you don't have an account, you can first choose your preferred membership plan. Liverado memberships fit everyone's needs, and you can upgrade anytime to unlock even more features.

How to set up your account anonymously

Username and domain

Just do not use your name or other information that could easily identify you.

Password

Likewise, do not use information that could be used to identify you, such as personal information. Using a password generator is a good idea.

Recovery email

This is completely optional, and given what we said about separating your regular email and anonymous email accounts, you might as well skip it. (Note: without an alternate email address, you will not be able to recover your account if you lose your password)

Notes on creating anonymous email accounts

  • Do not include any personal information. This includes your name, nickname, spouse's name, children's names, where you live and work, and any information that anyone might use to identify you.

  • Keep your anonymous email login information separate from your other online accounts. This includes your work or personal email accounts, social media accounts, Google, etc. Never use anonymous email services to log into these sites.

  • Save your anonymous email password in a safe place. A good password manager like LastPass would be helpful. Just make sure they are encrypting your information and can keep your password safe.

  • Browse privately. Some browsers, such as Google and Firefox, have an "incognito mode." When this feature is enabled, the browser creates a temporary session separate from the main session. It will not store any browsing history while it is open.

In incognito mode, the websites you visit do not store cookies locally on your computer, and your user data is forgotten once you close your browser window.

However, keep in mind that if you use incognito mode in Chrome, your IP address is still visible.

  • To prevent your IP address from being leaked, use a VPN.

  • Don't talk to anyone about your use of anonymous email. You tell someone you have an anonymous email account, and everyone will know you're using an anonymous email.
