Receive messages without sharing an email address.
No more having your email address scraped and your inbox flooded with spam.
If you're like most journalists, your inbox is dominated by spam, messages that aren't relevant or press releases that are missing basic information. You put your email address online to be accessible, only to have it scraped, added to databases or shared on spam networks. Instead, use Legitimate!
Use your real email for important professional communication with colleagues and select contacts, and let Legitimate handle the rest.
Keep your email private while still allowing others to contact you. With Legitimate, you can use our custom forms to request the information you need, all while keeping your personal email address confidential.
“I can't believe this has never been done before. This will give journalists the ability to be fully contactable without exposing themselves to mountains of spam.”
Legitimate offers more than just a simple contact form - it also allows you to have ongoing conversations. We use single-use email addresses for each conversation, which you can use to keep in touch for as long as you'd like.
Additionally, all conversations within Legitimate are fully encrypted for your privacy and security.
Easily transfer to your own email at any time
