Unroll Me Is The Perfect Email App To Keep Your Inbox Clean

One of the good features of email services these days is the ability to keep thousands of letters online free. However, this benefit is destroyed by subscription letters, which makes inboxes a mess. There are times when an important email is buried because of subscription emails, and that might be a missed chance for a great opportunity. But these subscription emails sometimes have good deals which are hard to pass. Fortunately, there is an app called Unroll Me which makes organizing emails easier and stress-free.

Unroll Me is a third-party app that works in both Gmail and Yahoo email accounts, with development for AOL development on the way. The app filters all the subscription emails and hides them from your inbox until you decided to view your subscription emails and check the deals. This way, you don’t need to unsubscribe to your newsletters, but you won’t see those emails burying important ones from your inbox.

The first thing to do to use this app is to let it scan your Gmail or Yahoo account. In this step, the app will determine what are the subscription newsletters your account is actively subscribed into. The scan is fast enough and only takes a few minutes for an inbox with more than 10,000 messages. After the scan, Unroll Me will show your Rollup or the collection of your subscription messages in one email. After the Rollup, each of your subscription messages will be filtered to the Rollup and will not appear in your Inbox. You can only view those messages when you view your Rollup. All the messages in the Rollup are in the Unroll Me folder found in your email account.

Unfortunately, you can’t have one Rollup for two email accounts. If you want to check the Rollup in your Gmail and Yahoo accounts, you need to log in separately to the Unroll Me site. Another rough edge for the app is the fact that you would need to find a message manually because the app doesn’t support directly opening messages. Although there a lot of things needed to be improved, it is worthy to note that the app is available for free, which is already a great price for the services that it does. 

Some Insights on Cyber Security by Unroll Me

With the increase in the internet penetration rate and the adoption of technology by many people around the world, the focus has now shifted to the safety of personal data and devices. The number of cybersecurity cases have increased significantly with time and some firms such as Unroll.Me have developed solutions to curb the menace. The organization was formed to help its clients to have control over their emails.

One is required to subscribe for the service for free to enable them to easily unsubscribe from unwanted subscriptions. A daily list of the subscriptions is automatically prepared and sent to the subscribers. Through the Unroll.Me service, you are guaranteed a clean inbox. Unroll.Me recommends internet users to adopt several measures to curb cybersecurity threats and hence improve their experience.

One of the common practices is ensuring regular software update. Recently, many internet users were threatened by cybercriminals through ransomware. In such a case, one is required to pay a ransom to avoid the destruction of their personal data. In early 2017, hundreds of thousands of people from 150 countries were affected by ransomware. The emails are one of the main platforms where ransomware are used.

Experts urge email users to avoid downloading software from unknown sources to avoid such attacks. Some of the institutions that were affected by the 2017 cybersecurity incident include hospitals and educational institutions. It was a lesson to many people that they should always ensure that all their software are up to date.

Many people don’t like going through privacy policies as they consider them to be boring. However, it is necessary to do so as they contain crucial information about what to expect from a company. One of the privacy policies for Unroll.Me is that the company may collect, use and sell your data provided it’s not of personal nature. One of the incidents that made people realize the need for this practice involved Uber and its rival company. Many people were surprised due to that policy by Unroll.Me. The other way that your personal information may get compromised and exposed to third parties is through the use of some third-party applications.
