Bitwarden adds email alias integration with SimpleLogin, AnonAddy and Firefox Relay | New
SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–June 1, 2022–
Bitwarden, the open-source password manager trusted by millions, today announced integration with three popular email forwarding services: SimpleLogin, AnonAddy, and Firefox Relay. This integration allows the creation of email aliases with these services when generating usernames in the recently updated Bitwarden generator. Now adding another layer of security and privacy is easier than ever.
Email aliases provide even more security and privacy
When creating a connection, a user can now easily hide their primary email address with an alias, keeping their real information private while still receiving messages in an inbox. SimpleLogin, AnonAddy, and Firefox Relay allow users to have multiple aliases, allowing a different email address to be used for each login for added security and privacy.
“Most people have a primary email address that becomes their Internet identity,” says Son Nguyen Kim, Founder and CEO of SimpleLogin. “Using Bitwarden to create email aliases with SimpleLogin on the fly adds a privacy line of defense to online accounts. Saving them as part of stored logins combines privacy and security in one convenient solution.”
“An email alias service like AnonAddy helps protect user privacy online, which makes us very complementary to a password management service like Bitwarden,” said Will Browning, Founder and CEO of AnonAddy. “Both companies share a commitment to the increased transparency that comes with open source technologies and we’re excited to integrate with Bitwarden to offer users another way to protect themselves online.”
“People’s privacy is fundamental no matter where they are or what apps they use – whether it’s saving passwords in Firefox or using other password managers,” said said Luke Crouch, security engineer at Firefox Relay. “Hackers and trackers abuse email addresses and passwords to break into accounts and link personal information. Combining Firefox Relay and Bitwarden to hide your real email address AND create strong unique passwords reduces significantly the risk of account takeover or data aggregation.
Create unique email aliases with the Bitwarden generator
When using Bitwarden to generate a new username, the option to create an email alias is presented, with a sub-select to choose SimpleLogin, AnonAddy, or Firefox Relay. The user enters the API key of his individual account with the chosen service, selects the desired options and, upon generation, a new alias registers on his alias service account. The selection and API key are saved for future use.
Using unique usernames, email addresses and passwords for each account is a powerful method to increase security and privacy on the Internet and adds protection to logins from breaches and leaks. data.
The username generator is available in the Bitwarden desktop app, browser extensions, and the Bitwarden web vault. Support for mobile apps is planned for a future release.
