I'm trying something new to help limit the cross-site sharing of data between sites like Amazon, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. For those sites, I'm adding a unique, random string of text after a + in my email address. For example: Name + $7J,Fe9Q&/r&o+9N82B8 @ mailaccount.net and being careful with the use of symbols to not include any extra @'s.
1) Has anyone else used this as a step in securing their accounts? Since many email platforms support the name+"whatever" convention, I'd guess that the big data mining companies could automate ignoring it.
2) Is there a way to request this as a feature in 1Password? I'm using the secure password generation to create what comes after the + but I'd like to have it as a standard choice?
Honestly, I'd rather trust this process -creating a unique secure email address for each account- to 1Password than to Apple.
