We don't entirely trust every website we sign up for, so we wanted to build something to hide our identities from apps and websites in the event of a malicious owner or database leak.
What it does
Obscura generates proxy email addresses to hide your identity from websites, apps, and newsletters. After we forward your email, we immediately burn it.
How we built it
It's built with nodejs/react/postgres with a mail server called wildduck that we proxy messages through.
Challenges we ran into
Setting up a proxy mail server was pretty new for us.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What's next for Obscura
We want to get payments and invites working so people can subscribe to our service.
