What can you use the app for?

Jetable is a way to fight back against spam and unsolicited email problems that many people experience. When signing up to a service on the internet you normally have to enter an email address, this can result in lots of spam filling up your mail box. Jetable is a way to create a temporary email address which gets deleted after a certain amount of time, this makes it easy to sign up to the services with the temporary address and then not worry about the spam. The emails sent to this address will be forwarded to a personal email address so confirmation emails will still get through, however after the expiration period of the email address all emails will simply be bounced. Jetable is a great solution for anyone struggling from spam.

The email addresses can’t however be used to sign up to newsletters because they will expire at some time in the future.
