How encryption works

We try to protect your email address as best as possible. That's why we store only an encrypted version of your email address in our database.

When you enter your email address in the form to generate your link we encrypt your email to store it in our database. The encryption key is randomly generated and equals your Spamty link. We encrypt the address with the AES-256 algorithm which is also used in the US to encrypt "Top Secret" documents.

Pros

By using this encryption method we ensure that no one has access to your email address if he didn't got the link from you. Even if someone hacks our database (we hope this will never happen) he cannot send you spam because he would not be able to decrypt your email address.

Cons

The key in your Spamty link makes it very long. To share it we recommend to use our URL shortener.
