New Firefox service will generate unique email aliases to enter in online forms Firefox Private Relay add-on to help users safeguard their email addresses from spammers. Browser maker Mozilla is working on a new service called Private Relay that generates unique aliases to hide a user’s email address from advertisers and spam operators when filling in online forms. The service entered testing last month and is currently in a closed beta, with a public beta currently scheduled for later this year, ZDNet has learned.
The user can then enter this email address in web forms to send contact requests, subscribe to newsletters, and register new accounts. The concept of an email alias has existed for decades, but managing them has always been a chore, or email providers didn’t allow users access to such a feature.
