What Is a Proxy Email?

November 6, 2023

A proxy email (a disposable or temporary email) is a short-term email address used for one-time purposes. It forwards emails to a primary address, allowing multiple proxies to link to a single primary inbox for convenience.

The addresses expire after a set time or a certain number of received emails, making them valuable for online registrations, testing, or avoiding unwanted marketing emails.

These addresses are primarily used to conceal the user's primary address and minimize spam.
