Support for Dynamic emails

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when we want to create an account in some sites, we don't want to share our personal emails (thus ending in pwned lists). So a way to increate security by entropy is to never repeat an email.

Apple is rolling out this on beta versions, basically you can create a random hash @ apple.me, and that is a forward to your personal email.
Now, for those who we don't wanto to give apple all our data, I came out with a hacky solution:

  1. Change email to "password" type, remove "sensitive" and add "exclude from audit" (just for sanity check)
  2. Use the password generator to create a nice hash of characters and add @yourwebsite.com to form the email
  3. Have a catch-all email wildcard on yourwebsite.com, so any email that is not registered will be forwarded to your email

I'm attaching two screenshots of the hack working

Now a complete feature could be:

  • A way to configure the website on the email generator (not a dealbreaker)
  • Keep a log of what auto-generated emails were created to avoid reusing a hash (also not a deal breaker, but a nice add)
  • Some eye candy on the displayed result and while creating the record

Thanks in advance :)
