A temporary email address or disposable email address is usually used for registering on sites that you don’t want to give away your real email address. As most websites or apps now require a registration or an email address for you to access their service or freebies and then after you do that, they will spam you relentlessly. So if you are to register on a website that you will only use it one time and you know well you will be spammed, you can get a temporary email address, with which you can still receive email address to confirm while not revealing your real email address.
To use mailinator, you don’t even need to go to their website first. You simply make up an email address like email@example.com or anything. Just make sure that it ends with @mailinator. Then you can use this email address to register or sign up and if needed, go to mailinator.com to check out the inbox of the email address you just made up. For example, by typing 5found, you will be directed to the inbox of firstname.lastname@example.org. After checking out the emails, you can forward it or delete it. If not, these incoming emails will be automatically deleted hours later.
