Create a separate email address for online shopping and promotional subscriptions

A separate commerce email address may serve you in the following ways:

  • Organizational clarity: Having a designated email address for subscriptions can help you keep your inbox clutter-free.
  • Privacy protection: Subscription services often sell customer data, leading to an increase in spam emails and potential phishing risk.
  • Enhanced security: Should your separate email address be compromised, it minimizes the risk of your primary email — which likely contains sensitive information — being collaterally exposed.
