RemoveMe Is the Easiest Way to Unsubscribe from Spammy Email Lists

by Hazel Chua

I remember subscribing to an email list a few months ago because the site was hosting a giveaway. Normally, I don’t mind a few emails a month, especially if they’re promoting something that I’m interested in. However, one email a day isn’t cool, and that just encourages people to unsubscribe, if you ask me.

That’s what I tried to do and failed at horribly because even after submitting a request to unsubscribe, I still received the emails on a daily basis!

What eventually worked for me was RemoveMe. It’s a free browser extension that adds an “Unsubscribe” button beside email subjects right in your inbox. All you have to do is click and be done with it. It’s compatible with Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, and Hotmail, so if you use another service, then you might have to wait a while before it’s available on the platform that you’re using.

RemoveMe is part of a suite of tools called PowerInbox, which adds a few other handy features to your email box, such as security icons for verified senders, and the ability to preview content without opening emails. You can check out and install RemoveMe for free here.
