How to get a fake email address
You want to send anonymous e-mails? Can do. (ICHIRO/Stockbyte/Getty Images)

Perhaps you are interested in distributing political criticism in China. Maybe you want to anonymously inform the police that your boss is committing some crime. Then again, maybe you have cooked up some elaborate scheme to catch your spouse cheating. For whatever reason, you have decided that you need a fake e-mail account. You don't want to sign up for a regular free account because you are concerned about hiding your IP address and remaining completely anonymous. You need a special e-mail account, one with a foreign server that hides your location and identity.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Log onto the Internet and visit the Anonymous Speech website (see Resources). Anonymous Speech is a site that allows you to create a completely anonymous e-mail account or even website. This site promises not to reveal your identity to foreign governments or private parties. Anonymous Speech moves servers constantly to countries outside of the United States or Europe. This makes it almost impossible for any prosecutors to start legal disputes.

  2. 2

    Click at the option at the top that reads "Start Here." This will take you to an online form you must fill out.

  3. 3

    Choose a pseudonym for your username and a password. Then enter your desired e-mail address. Click the "Check Availability" button to ensure that the address is available.

  4. 4

    Choose whether you want your anonymous e-mail to end in or, for people who want their e-mails to remain inconspicuous.

  5. 5

    Choose whether you want to enter your regular e-mail into the form. You are not required to enter your regular e-mail if you want to remain completely anonymous. You can't retrieve your password if you do not enter your e-mail, though, so be careful to make a permanent record of it.

  6. 6

    Read the terms, and click the box to agree to them.

  7. 7

    Click the "Register" button. You will then reach a screen in which you can begin sending your e-mails immediately. You can even choose to send them time-delayed and get read receipts.
