Scr.im Shares Your Email on the Internet, Protects It from Spambots


Ever wanted to share your email address with someone in a public forum—like the Lifehacker comments, for example—but don’t want every spambot in the world adding your email address to their database? Scr.im can help.

Scr.im is a very simple service that creates small, custom URLs for sharing your email with real people. It works like this: You add your email address to Scr.im, it gives you a small URL—like this one—that requires you to pass a captcha to view the email address.

That’s all Scr.im does—which means you can file this one into the handy, single-use category for webapps—a category we love dearly.
