Using a Fake Gmail Account to Handle Spam.

Creating and connecting a fake Gmail account to other apps. What could possibly go wrong?

Gmail

Eons ago, I set up a Google account to use for spam and signing into various sites without giving away my real email address. When I decided to delete the account, I found getting rid of apps connected to it was laborious. If you’re trying to do the same, keep this in mind: Apps like Picasa are like parasites that are hard to get rid of. In the case of Picasa, I had to remove the photos associated with my Google account first, before I could delete the app, and ultimately the Gmail account. It was an arduous process.
