Firefox Relay is an email service available at relay.firefox.com, designed and developed by Mozilla, where you can create multiple alias email addresses.

This is designed to safeguard your actual email address from spammers and of course from leaking your email addresses to several data hacks and obviously dark web.

Furthermore, this service is actually useful for remembering and managing your numerous online accounts. For example, you might want to create an email address like coupons@myfamily.mozmail.com Or, mailinglist@hellotux.mozmail.com. See, it’s easier to remember and manage. Isn’t it?

Closing Notes

There are similar service available today which provide the email relay service such as this. But at this moment, the only advantage is the limited period price with unlimited accounts.
