Waking up to dozens of emails is not the best way to start your day with. It is a jarring experience and can get you hooked up for hours and spoil your morning plans. Seeing those spam emails and newsletters are definitely not the things you want to deal with at any time in the day let alone the first thing in the morning. But they are there, nonetheless. Everyday you see them, everyday you resolute to get rid of them, but they are just so large in number that many of us have learned to live with them.
Almost every website you visit, be it an online store, or a travelling portal, they ask for your email ID. You purchase a book, a music album, book an airline ticket or a movie ticket, or use any service, they will ask for your email ID. We all know that we should try not to share our email IDs but at times, it becomes almost impossible and a thing of necessity to provide them with the same. Now, that isn’t the real problem, the problem is how they use your email IDs. A lot of them, if not all, will add you to their subscriber list which avails you for receiving notifications for their future offers and other updates – or in other words, spam your email inbox. Things become even more tedious when some of these email IDs don’t give you the option to sign-out from their future emails.
Emails are the things of high priority, perhaps the reason why all your academic and professional life resides in your mail inbox. It is also a place which acts as your identity proof for your bank accounts, social media profiles, and other email IDs. My contention is that your email inbox is a place of high importance and value, and you shouldn’t have to bother getting rid of spam and other things you no longer are interested in subscribing.
Thankfully, we now have a very smart web-service to take care of all this. The service is called UnrollMe, and as its name suggests, it unrolls you from the services you have subscribed to. You can very easily integrate your Gmail, Yahoo ID and now even Outlook.com, with the service, and in a matter of seconds, the service will populate a list of all the services you have had signed up for.
Once the list has been populated, you can easily un-subscribe from them in mere few clicks. Some services don’t give any option to un-subscribe from them, fortunately, they won’t be escaping from UnrollMe.
The service has a very nice UI, and the recent update made it compatible with Yahoo service as well. You can use the service from your mobile devices as well.
The service is amazing, and well trustworthy, for the kind of job it does, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be using it. It is also noteworthy that it is completely free. It will take you just few minutes with UnrollMe, and the service will make your life easier.
