Email Anonymization

Generate virtual emails to protect your users' privacy.

Meet the new Glide Apps

Glide Pages are now Glide Apps. Please refer to this article for up-to-date information, as some of this documentation is outdated.

Glide can generate virtual email addresses for users of your app—users sign in normally, and developers never see their real email. This protects user privacy and minimizes the sharing of personal info.

This won't affect existing user emails but will create an anonymous email for any new users that sign up.

We can switch back and forth between the two settings. Real and anonymous email addresses can coexist in the same app. If we turn the feature on or off – existing emails in our app won't change – only the new emails that come in will be affected by the current setting.

User indication

Users are not given any indication that their emails are being anonymized so it is up to you to notify them of this – if you wish to do so.

Anonymous email functions

If an email is anonymised, you will not be able to email that anonymous email (through email actions etc). For now, we do not forward emails – but we will do this in the future.
