Me and My ID

The idea

  1. Stop giving away your personal email address when signing-up with companies, websites or other organisations

  2. Each time, use a new, unique Me and My ID email address instead

  3. Easily block contact from any of them without having to change your real email address

  4. Read emails from your usual inbox, confident that your personal email address will stay secret (unless you choose to reply)

  5. Identify who gave away, sold or lost one of your Me and My ID email addresses without your permission

  6. Pat yourself on the back for fighting SPAM and protecting your identity as well as personal data

Use a unique email address every time
you sign-up with organisations

Use a unique email to sign up, and provide an effective spam filter

Our promises


Me and My ID is the simple way to reduce spam. Sign-up as usual to marketing messages but use a new Me and My ID email address instead of your real one. Create a unique address on our website or just tell the third party your new address using this standard format (i.e. assuming you have registered here already. (Part1 identifies the business it's for and Part2 identifies you.)

You will still receive emails to your existing email inbox and can click on links as usual.

As the Me and My ID email address you give away is unique for each organisation you interact with you can cut them off one by one. And if a company sells your details, you will know who did it by seeing which Me and My ID address receives the spam.


By using Me and My ID you will be more secure online. If you use a Me and My ID email address as your username on other sites, if allowed, then you will always have a different username for each site (using the same username and password for multiple sites puts you at the highest risk of being hacked).

We value your privacy. Unless you give us specific permission when you need our help, we can't read your emails or see your replies, nor can we see to which sites you personally sign-up.

We will never pass on your personal email address to anyone. And to be 100% safe we don’t ask for your other passwords or store them in any way either. (You should not use the same password here as you do when accessing your main email account.)


Use of the Me and My ID service with the email address you register today will remain free for the life of that email address.

We are promising this to thank those who support us and spread the word as we get started. Naturally, we may charge new users a modest fee in future, so register today to guarantee your indefinite free access. Tell your friends to join now while they have the chance to do so for free as well.

Benefits to you

We want you to be able to have one email address for life, without worrying that it will become so clogged-up with spam that you are driven to abandon it and start over with a new address, in spite of how inconvenient that is for your friends and family.

Me and My ID is a simple way to take back control of your email address. Only you and your closest friends need ever know your real email address – for everyone else e.g. marketing firms, give them a different, unique Me and My ID email. That way, you'll know if it was given or sold to other businesses without your permission, as they'll be using the unique address you created for the business you intended to hear from.

If you start getting too much junk, you can simply reject emails to the unique address that's receiving it and cut ties completely with the offending supplier and all those they gave your address away to as well.

Don't rely on ticking the boxes to decline marketing emails or refusing permission for your details to be shared with “carefully selected partners” – theft of personal data is rife and there are too many unscrupulous traders in personal information to rely on this. Me and My ID puts you back in charge of who contacts you, without having to manage multiple email accounts.
