  • Protect your emails (short note)
    Other services like this one: addy.io or relay.firefox.com (no pgp, as I remember). - Source: dev.to / about 2 months ago
  • Everyone Wants Your Email Address. Think Twice Before Sharing It
    Firefox Relay is a handy assistant to at least stymie email tracking and is neatly integrated with the browser. The free tier gets you a few masked emails that forward to your actual inbox. You can't reply through the masked email without paying, but that might not be necessary for all. It feels like retaining some semblance of privacy is a losing battle. Data clean rooms are industry standard now and many... - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Mozilla names new CEO as it pivots to data privacy
    That isn't alarmist, but almost all privacy features in Brave are already in Firefox as well. Looking at this page: - Chromium customizations: Not necessary in Firefox - Client-side encryption for Brave Sync: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-firefox-sync-keeps-your-data-safe-even-if-tls-fails - DeAMPing: I think AMP has been dead for a few years now - Limiting network server calls: I think this is a bit... - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Mozilla Monitor Plus: automatically remove your personal info from data brokers
    > In a sense, it sounds like the advice of the services is less subscribing to them than trying not to have a few e-mails that map to your personal identity. Firefox Relay is a great way to do that :) https://relay.firefox.com Integrating that with Monitor is pretty high on at least my personal wish list. - Source: Hacker News / 4 months ago
  • Ask HN: How can we help Firefox not to dissapear?
    > In what ways has mozilla meaningfully dared to try and expand their revenue streams? I think that Mozilla VPN is pretty nice. It's based on Mullvad VPN, so they seem to know their audience (given that Mullvad has a pretty okay reputation among many tech savvy or privacy conscious folks, a lot of which probably use something like Firefox as well): https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/products/vpn/ I guess there's also... - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Ask HN: Streaming Player Replacement for Roku?
    I've been dragging around a similar concern. My solution might be to use Mozilla's Relay for the email and Privacy.com for the credit card. https://relay.firefox.com/ https://privacy.com/ That won't stop the data collection but it should mitigate how useful it is. Maybe? - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • I stay reasonably anonymous online
    Firefox Relay offers "randomized" phone numbers along with its emails: https://relay.firefox.com. - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
  • Decky Loader Cloud Saves
    It has access to your entire account. I created a new microsoft account via https://relay.firefox.com/. Source: 11 months ago
  • Thirsty websites
    I use Firefox Relay for that. You get a Mozilla email and it forwards those to your actual email, keeping your actual one a secret. Source: 12 months ago
  • Microsoft Edge removes ability to delete Sync Data from Cloud
    There's also Relay. I believe you can buy it alone or bundled with their VPN. https://relay.firefox.com/. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Incredible Connection and Everyshop customer data leaked online
    There are also relay services that are helpful. I use Firefox Relay, but there are others. Source: about 1 year ago
  • See your identity pieced together from stolen data
    Yeah, nothing you can do about breaches that have happened, but there are precautions you can take to minimise the risk of breaches going forward - for example using a service that hides your email address and creates a fake one to give to companies, with any messages being forwarded to your real email, Firefox Relay and Apple's Hide My Email do this, and I'm sure there are others. Companies will only ever see... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Want to donate to OSS. Where should it go? Multiple small donations, or a few larger donations? Who do you donate to?
    I'm using Firefox Relay since it launched and it's genuinely awesome. Highly recommend that for $0.99/month. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Do you use your VPN daily?
    Https://relay.firefox.com/ you can still join the waiting list for FF Relay phone numbers edition if you’d like. Source: about 1 year ago
  • LPT: Type the website name before your first name when creating online accounts so you know who leaked your data.
    Yes! Firefox Relay ftw! Though I'll be checking the others that you mentioned. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: Is there an online service which gives you a personal number for SMS?
    Mozilla has Firefox Relay. I have tried yet, but I very curious. https://relay.firefox.com/. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • YSK: LinkedIn will share your suspected phone number with recruiters even when no phone number is used (2fa/ app). Opt out in "Visibility settings" by changing "discovery via phone number" to Nobody.
    Firefox has a phone relay service Relay.Firefox. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Using disposable phone numbers should become mainstream!
    Not sure if this is what you're looking for. But this is phone masking. The downsides are that it is in the Firefox ecosystem depending on your web browser and it is USD 3.99 per month because it comes with a subscription to other products. Thought this would be helpful! Source: over 1 year ago
  • Does ProtonMail has disposable e-mails for the free accounts?
    I just realized that Firefox also has a solution: https://relay.firefox.com/. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Standing stones support - Useless with a hacked account
    Since you've already been hacked that likely means your email address and personal information are on a criminal database on the dark web. I highly recommend using a unique email address for everyone account you have with a service like Simplelogin or firefox relay and very long complicated password with something like bitwarden or keepass are an absolute must these days. If you use a password manager then it... Source: over 1 year ago
  • The IAB loves tracking users. But it hates users tracking them
    That's why for Firefox Relay [1], we recommend using random email masks, and why I use it over my own catch-all domain for unimportant things. We do support your own catch-all subdomain, but that is just to cover the use case of having to come up with an email mask on-the-spot. If you are filling in a web form, best to use an email address that looks exactly like the email addresses of other Relay users. [1]... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
