This handy browser extension is on its way to iOS
Getting Stuff Done
May 24, 2016

Launched in March 2016, Throttle sought to help you save your inbox from clutter and your email address from spammers. As a browser extension, Throttle will add a button to all email address form fields for things you fill out online such as newsletters and coupons.

When you click that button, a unique email address will be entered for you, saving you from giving out your own address. Then, messages sent to that address will be rolled up into a daily digest for you to check out.

Here is a preview of Throttle and just click here if you cannot see the video:


Here are several of the features you can expect from Throttle on iOS:

  • Syncing with your devices and computer
  • Unlimited email address generation
  • A Reading List with categories to organize your messages
  • Access control for revoking the generated email address
  • Daily and weekly digests organized by category
  • A spam shield to alert you of strange activity
  • Forwarding, replying, sharing, and multiple account support

Today, May 24, the company announced its upcoming app for iPhone and is offering a beta program for 2,000 users. There are two ways to qualify for a chance to one of our Throttle beta slots.
