Email alert "pwned"
In February 2018, a massive collection of almost 3,000 alleged data breaches was found online. Whilst some of the data had previously been seen in Have I Been Pwned, 2,844 of the files consisting of more than 80 million unique email addresses had not previously been seen. Each file contained both an email address and plain text password and were consequently loaded as a single "unverified" data breach.

Got that also.. my sweeps email. Maybe they'll do some entering for me!

I never find out what site this information has been taken from or what password - the posting is always down when I get the alert.

That's my whole attitude. What are they going to do hack me and enter my sweeps for me!

Yes it is. https://unroll.me/

Here is a thread where we are talking about it. scroll down a few post from the top. I have been using it ever since this thread and I have gone from about 3000 a day to 100 a day. You have to give them access to your email but it's only my sweep email so I don't worry about it.

During the holidays I was getting as many as 5000 a day.

The good thing is if you unsubscribe from something (the way it was explained to me is it just gets redirected to your trash) and you decide you want it back you just go in and find it and have it delivered back to your inbox.

You get a list of all your subscriptions and are given choices to the right of what you want to do with them. It's one click and you are done!

I have never reached that many emails!!! I may reach 1000 in a day at max.. but I delete several times a day so if I'm away for the day I may have 325 waiting for me, but rarely more!

I have been unsubscribing from all those author ones from sweeps around the holidays. I really didn't care for their racy emails...

And I'm in the process of un-liking a lot of FB pages that I don't even remember liking!

I use iot for freebies too and I imagine that's where I get a lot of junk. Glad I found that unroll me cause it has saved me a lot of frustration. For awhile I was spending a lot of time going through emails everyday. Most of them were from places I never heard of.
