Creating a Secure and Private Email Cleaning Solution: The Story Behind GoodByEmail

Declutter Your Inbox the Privacy-Safe Way with GoodByEmail.

Many products have their story, born from a need, a moment of frustration, or a desire for change. For us at GoodByEmail, it wasn’t just about handling an overflowing inbox; it was about redefining how we interact with our digital lives while placing our privacy at the forefront.

GoodByEmail: Clean up your email inbox, privacy-first.

The Genesis of GoodByEmail

Like many of you, I found myself wading through an endless sea of emails daily. My inbox was a cluttered mess, filled with newsletters I never subscribed to, updates I didn’t need, and countless messages from a handful of repeat offenders. I tried everything available on the market to clean my inbox, but each solution fell short. They either required too much access to my personal data, were ineffective at dealing with the real space hogs, or both. That’s when the idea for GoodByEmail was born—a tool designed from the ground up to respect user privacy while effectively managing email clutter.

Understanding the Real Issue

Contrary to popular belief, large attachments weren’t the primary culprits taking up precious inbox space. Instead, it was the sheer volume of emails from top offenders. Identifying and managing these were key to truly reclaiming my digital space.

Privacy-First Philosophy

At GoodByEmail, we do things differently. Your privacy is not just a policy; it’s our foundation. Our tool works entirely on your computer, ensuring that your emails never leave your system. We don’t have access to your emails, we don’t need your login credentials, and we certainly don’t sell your data. With GoodByEmail, what’s yours stays yours.

Features that Empower You

  • Local Processing: GoodByEmail operates locally on your computer. This means you can even use it offline, ensuring maximum privacy.
  • No Need for Oauth Tokens or App-Specific Passwords: We’ve eliminated the need for invasive permissions. Our technology doesn’t require access to your email login or OAuth tokens.
  • Identifying Top Offenders: Unlike tools that focus solely on unsubscribing, GoodByEmail helps you identify the real space hogs—those repeat offenders sending the bulk of emails.

Why Unsubscribe Isn’t Enough

While unsubscribing can help manage future clutter, and GoodByEmail offers one-click unsubscribes, it doesn’t address the existing pile-up. Our insights have shown that understanding your inbox’s top offenders is crucial for a truly clean and organized email experience.

Our Commitment to Your Privacy

In an era where data is gold, we choose integrity over quick profits. By design, we cannot access your emails. This principle is not just built into our technology but is a cornerstone of our philosophy—your privacy is paramount to us. This approach reflects our commitment to ethical business practices, ensuring that your trust in us is well placed.
