We’re excited about how Cloaked Email provides Craigslist users in particular with a new tool to protect their anonymity.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Gliph, a one-of-a-kind mobile and web app, today announced the availability of Cloaked Email, a new and innovative method for protecting the privacy of users’ email addresses.
Cloaked Email allows users to both send and receive email using their normal email client, while keeping their real email address a secret. Email sent to the cloaked address is smoothly forwarded to users’ real email addresses. When the user replies, their real email address is automatically replaced with the cloak address.
This design is perfect for situations like Craigslist communications and transactions, where users often prefer to keep their real identity under wraps. “We’re excited about how Cloaked Email provides Craigslist users in particular with a new tool to protect their anonymity,” said Rob Banagale, co-founder and CEO of Gliph. “We all have situations where we’d prefer to keep our actual email address private. Cloaked Email makes this convenient for everyone.”
In addition to general privacy protection, Cloaked Email offers Gliph users a new layer of protection against potential data breaches. By registering for a website or newsletter using a Cloaked Email address instead of a real one, Gliph users can limit their exposure to breach or attack.
“As we’ve seen with the recent attacks against Blizzard, Yahoo, and Stratfor, unfortunately, data breaches are becoming a problem for everyone,” said Nicholas Asch, co-founder and CTO of Gliph. “From major gaming companies to global intelligence service providers, it just doesn’t pay to use your real email address if you can avoid it.”
Each Gliph user is given one free cloak when they sign up for Gliph. Additional cloaks can be earned by inviting new users to the service. After five successful invites, email attachments are automatically enabled on all past and future cloaks.
