How to Stop Spam Emails

March 29, 2017

The average person gets about 105 unwanted email each days. You give your email to blogs, media sites, and companies and they use it in ways that you wouldn’t expect or want them to. This often leads to you getting annoying spam in your inbox. Since most people have to deal with this issue on a daily basis, here are just a few ways that you can make this stop.


Create a temporary email address. This may sound annoying to you. Why create another email address when you already have one? But this is actually the easiest measure that you can take to stop spam in your inbox. Creating a “fake” email address lets you receive email for a limited amount of time, thus allowing you to just click on the verification email and gain access to the website and then never return to the email address again.


Encrypt a current email address. This one is a little more difficult, but there are tools out there that will let you encrypt your email address. These tools offer a suite of security enhancements to ensure that your data is always being protected. Like I said, this one is a bit more difficult. It requires someone with tech-savvy knowledge and can be a bit more difficult to figure out.


Use a secure email provider. There are a lot of providers out there that offer little to no security what so ever for your email and then there are others that provide top-notch security for free or a nominal free. Choose the latter. They provide things like a secure VPM for all internet browsing, a USB-key necessary to enter your email, and free email protection for your phone for extra security measures.


Filter your spam. If you are like me (and most other people), you don’t enjoy having an email packed full of junk. There are things that you can do about this besides the tedious task of going through each individual email. You can create various filters to put particular emails into different inboxes. This technique not only helps keep spam out, but it also helps you keep track of what emails are where.


Unsubscribe. I know, this one sounds agonizing, and it is. However, it is also the best and easiest way to stop spam emails. Most marketing emails you get will have an option at the bottom that says something like “Unsubscribe” or “Remove Me”. Usually this will take you to a different website and that will let you unsubscribe from receiving any more emails.
