Enter your real email address
Click "Get New Address"
Copy your new Instance Mail address and use it in place of your real address
Turn off the address when you're done with it
Your Instance Mail address will expire after 120 days by default.
You can shut off your Instance Mail address any time before that.
We will never spam your real email address or share it with anyone. That would go against the entire point of a disposable email service like Instance Mail.
Instance Mail is a KisoLabs service. So if you want more control over your Instance Mail addresses, you can sign up for KisoLabs' Instance Mail. It's also free and includes reporting, spam and virus scanning, adjustable expiration dates and more! If you have old Instance Mail addresses that you want to get back, you can do that from KisoLabs, too!
Instance Mail is a disposable email (or throw-away email) service. It means that you can create an email address which you can use one time, and get rid of it when you no longer need it. You don't have to go to a separate website to check your mail, though. We forward it right to your regular inbox!
The main reason to use Instance Mail is to protect yourself against spam. Let's say you want to register on a forum or blog, but you're afraid they'll spam you (or sell your email address to spammers). Get a disposable email address from Instance Mail and give that to them instead! They can send you a verification email so that you can complete registration. Once you've registered you can turn off that Instance Mail address and never hear from them again.
Instance Mail can also be used to protect your identity. If your real email address contains your name or some other identifying information, you may not want to give it out to someone you don't know very well. Give them an Instance Mail address instead, and they'll never know where the email is being forwarded to! (Of course they'll find out your real email address if you reply to them, so for full anonymity you might just want to sign up for another regular email address).
There are many other good reasons to use a disposable email address, and there are a lot of disposable email providers out there. Unlike a lot of them, Instance Mail is backed by KisoLabs' robust and reliable email infrastructure. Just because you want to avoid junk email doesn't mean that you should settle for a junk email service. And of course it's free for as many email addresses as you want to create!
By default your Instance Mail address will expire in 120 days. If you don't want your address to be active for that long, you can select a different time period for it to stay active. Once that time is up, the address will be disabled and you will no longer receive email that's sent to your Instance Mail address.
If you select this option you'll receive an email from us when your address has expired and is no longer functional. By default you will not receive that reminder.
Why have a disposable email address if you can't turn it off when it starts getting spam? We make it easy to turn off any of your Instance Mail addresses, but you need to know two things: Your Instance Mail address and your key.
You can figure out which Instance Mail address you want to disable by looking in the To: field of an email. (Your Instance Mail address will always end in @instancemail.net).
We sent you a key the first time you created an Instance Mail address. If you don't have that original email, click "I lost my key" below and we'll send it to you again.
To have your key resent to you, just enter your real email address below and click "Send it!"
We have an app out for Android with one coming soon for iOS!
Apologies, but as of now the app is only available in English (though we're going to be updating it soon). The Instance Mail website is the place to go for the latest features, and it should work really well in most any mobile browser!
Since we don't collect any information directly from you besides your real email address, we can't share your other personal information. Here's some other stuff we have but will not share:
When we say that we won't share this stuff with anyone, that means anyone. Not our partners, not our affiliates, not our third cousin who did us that favor that time.
Instance Mail is a KisoLabs product, and this policy covers your information on this website (InstanceMail.com) as well as on KisoLabs' servers and the KisoLabs website (KisoLabs.com).
We're very serious about protecting your privacy, because that's probably the reason you're using Instance Mail in the first place: To protect yourself against spam and/or to keep your identity a secret. It would just be bad business on our part to sell or give away your email address (or any of your other personal information).
All that being said, if a court orders us to disclose any of your information then we might be obligated to do so. KisoLabs is based in New York in the United States of America, and we are bound by the laws of that jurisdiction.
Because the Instance Mail website is a service provided by KisoLabs, you must abide by the policies published on the KisoLabs website:
Here are some of the important points as related to Instance Mail (you should still read the other policies, though):
The bottom line is that Instance Mail is intended to protect you from spam and to protect your privacy. We reserve the right to terminate your service at any time and for any reason that we see fit.
