Useful services like VPN ones can help hide your digital fingerprints on the Internet or even benefit from free subscriptions without being recognized.

However, the following question logically arises: how to stay anonymous online? Everyone has their own reasons not to “show their faces” on the Internet. In this article, we will tell you how to generate a fake name, how to create fake temporary mail, and how to create a fake avatar. We couldn’t do without bonuses in the form of a life hack and showing you an amusing trick with mail.

How to generate a fake name

Perhaps, the main requirement for a fake personality, no matter how contradictory it may sound, is to make it look real and credible. Most social networks won’t let someone named McLovin register, and to come up with a name that looks like real is not as simple as it seems at first glance.

This is when fake name generator services come to the rescue.

Name Generator

This is how the service describes itself:

Are you about to create the best character ever? Have you already created one? Now, they need an epic name. Our name generator allows you to create a name with up to five components, so a name can be short and sweet or double-barrelled and swanky. With over 220,000 names in our database, you can also specify language, nationality, and other factors to give your character the perfect name.

The service has both a short version and a more complete one, where there is even such information as credit card numbers (fake ones, of course), anthropometric data and blood type, as well as the place of work and position. Curiously, the data is provided in the format adopted in the country of which your fictional character is a resident.

How to generate fake mail

Earlier, we wrote in detail about what a temporary mail is, how to create a disposable email address, and why you even need it.

Basically, A disposable email address is needed to let you receive confirmation letters and forget about this mail and the boring newsletter once and for all. Using disposable mail is a perfect way to protect your primary mailbox from worthless junk both on the Internet, and when filling out paper forms in stores. Moreover, it is extremely simple, convenient, and sometimes even faster than checking your real mail.

We also compared 8 services that will help you forget about stupid newsletters about “buying the right vacuum cleaner” forever. These services include both 10-minute mailboxes and mails that you can share with other people from around the world.

You can add any words to your personal email, all you need to do is too add any word and separate it with a plus sign “+". For example, letters sent to,, and even will come to

The trick is that the “+” sign and everything after it and before the “@” sign in ignored by the mail processing rules.

Why is an email address with the “+” sign convenient?

  • You can see who sends you letters. For instance, if you indicated email on some online sneakers store, and then received an ad about how to get rid of cockroaches to the same email address, you can know for sure who and to whom leaked your address.
  • It will come in handy when you register somewhere again, and the site does not “let you on,” saying that there’s already someone registered with this email. In this case, you just add a word after the plus sign, and you get the second mailbox. Or the third one, or the tenth – as many addresses as you like. And all this will come to your primary mailbox.

Bookmark temporary mail services, and do not forget about the plus sign.
