Burner Mail

Burner Mail allows you to generate anonymous email addresses that protect your personal email address. By using burner email addresses, you will never have to give out your personal email ever again. Instead, Burner Mail generates a unique and anonymous email for every service you sign up with, making it really hard for companies and advertisers to track you online.

Privacy Badger

The Privacy Badger extension blocks tracking tools so that nobody can track your browsing activity without your consent. The extension sends the Do Not Track signal with your browsing. If trackers ignore your wishes, your Badger will learn to block them.
