Over the years we, as humans, have found numerous ways of avoiding being subjected to personal advertising. Back in the good old days of 'snail-mail' we even went to the trouble of putting little 'no junk mail' stickers on our letter boxes to help prevent our mail being inundated with advertising material. So, advertisers got smarter and started targeting our email delivery. You'd open up your email every morning and have to wade through copious amounts of spam until we learned how to filter it straight into our junk folders. 

However, junk mail and spam are fairly random ways for advertisers to get their message across so they found another way of targeting people more accurately. They started buying bulk email addresses from everyone from department stores to banks (of course, they both deny that fact vociferously) so they could target people more accurately. Now we are bombarded with more dangerous advertising with our emails and phone numbers often in the hands of unscrupulous people and even Nigerian Princes from time to time. So, what we have here is a sure fire way of avoiding much of this malarkey. 

Polycred is a new email alias generator and manager that keeps your personal email address hidden from advertisers and shysters without the hassle of a second inbox to deal with every morning. It's a simple one-click app that generates an unlimited amount of unique email aliases for everything from petitions to website sign ups and conveniently delivers them straight into your regular email address. This keeps your real email address totally private, safe and secure and stops spam by controlling just who can see the real you. Of course, Polycred still lets you send and receive emails from your personal email inbox as normal but any using your alias address will appear to be from your alter ego and won't show who you really are. 

The app is remarkably simple to use. After you've signed up for free and installed the add-on for Chrome, Firefox or Edge you can click on the Polycred icon on email fields on any website sign up page and the app will generate a unique email alias. Thereafter, all emails sent from this site will go to your alias but will be readable from your regular email account. Don't worry if you like to use a password manager because Polycred is compatible with those too. The app will conveniently auto fill the form for you with your alternative email details. If you receive any spam or reckon that a website associated with your unique email address is responsible, you can simply delete or disable it with one click. The use of different aliases each time gives you better protection from marketers and hackers and puts a stop to those leaked email addresses that everyone dreads. 

Polycred is email for the modern world with it's very effective, convenient, simple and fast actions making spam problems a thing of the past. It also gives you the confidence to sign up for things online knowing that there will be no nasty repercussions later. There's a free basic version of the app that gives you 40 unique email addresses per month but, for under three bucks per month, there's a great pro version where you get a whole bunch more features including custom domains and priority service. Polycred is available now for free download with a 30-day free trial so you can see just how useful it will be.
