1. Is this service free and how it is financed?
Yes, this service is completely free! discard.email is funded entirely by advertising.
2. Are my emails safe against unwanted readers?
The security of your emails depends on the choice of e-mail local part (alias). To obtain a large security, you should generate an random e-mail local part. A generated e-mail alias is hard to guess and makes your emails safe against unwanted readers.
Domains which contains the word (PW), can be protected by a password.

A protected inbox stays up to 90 days after the last login received.
10. If some e-mails blocked?
Yes! Some spam e-mails are blocked. If an e-mail is not received, please check if there some rules in the spam list of inbox.
11. Is the password protection completely safe?
No! The password protection does not provide 100 percent security.
The password protection is only an additional feature which not necessarily embodies the meaning of this service. If you use the RSS Feed of an Inbox or use a bookmark, it is possible that unauthorized persons can access your protected inbox.
12. You get spam from discard.email?
YOU NOT RECEIVE ANY SPAM FROM DISCARD.EMAIL!
Unfortunately it happens again and again, the spammers abusing our legitimate and legal service for their shady dealings.
Technically it's a snap to send e-mails with freely selectable sender (in this case discard.email).
