There’s nothing worse than checking your inbox, only to find you’re been overloaded with thousand of different messages about things you really don’t care about. Maybe you wanted that 10% off for signing up, or maybe you once bought something for someone else and don’t even recall opting in but now you receive daily emails from a store or about a product you’re not even interested in. Unsubscribing from this deluge of unwanted emails one by one may seem like the only way, but choose that route and not only will it be frustrating and time-consuming, but depending on the e-blasting schedule of the sites you’re signed up for, you’ll continue to see new unwanted emails in your inbox for weeks before you manage to unsubscribe to all of them. So what’s a person to do?
Luckily, if you happen to use Gmail, there’s a way to unsubscribe from all of your unwanted emails with just a few clicks of a button. Deseat.me helps you find and delete all of those random accounts you signed up for in just a few simple steps, and without your email privacy being invaded or compromised.
Using Google OAuth to sign into Gmail, Deseat.me runs entirely on your computer, according to LifeHacker. This means your private data isn’t sent to the cloud, so you can rest easy that no one’s snooping around in your inbox somewhere.
All you have to do is sign in with Gmail, and then Deseat.me shows you a list of all the accounts you have signed up for with that email address. You then sort this list by either choosing “keep” or “add to delete queue.” For most popular services, just clicking delete will automatically unsubscribe you from their mailing list. For some others, you’ll be directed to their site to remove yourself manually.
For those who didn’t sign up using Gmail, there are other services out there that can help you, including Unroll.Me. This program supports a broader range of email accounts, including Outlook (including Hotmail, MSN, & Windows Live), Gmail, Google Apps, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, and iCloud.
