  • Unsubscribing with Leave Me Alone just got easier

    Leave Me Alone v2 is better, faster, and packed full of new features to make unsubscribing even easier! Check it out


    Features 🌻

    Clean all of your inboxes at once

    You can now connect all of your email accounts and scan them together. This makes it easy to clear out all of your subscription emails from all of your email addresses in one go.

    accounts

    If you have previously used Leave Me Alone with multiple email addresses and would like us to merge them into a single account please let us know!

    Improved mail list UI

    The new mail UI allows you to filter your mail by email address and status (subscribed, unsubscribed, or failed), sort by date received or score, and navigate using the new pagination so that you can unsubscribe in a more manageable way.

    We have made everything more compact so you can see more mail items while also increasing the amount of information we show you!

    Your mail list will now be kept up-to-date with your inboxes so that each time you log in your new subscription emails will be ready to view.

    mail-list-with-score

    Subscriber Score

    Every sender now has a quality score from A to F. This is our favourite new feature which makes it super quick and easy determine which emails are worth keeping.

    To power Subscriber Score we collect some anonymous data about the senders of subscription emails. There's some secret sauce mathematics behind the scenes to calculate this score so you can see which senders spam you the most and how many other people decided to unsubscribe!

    Find out more about Subscriber Score.

    subscriber-score

    This information improves the quality of Leave Me Alone for all users. If you don't want to contribute your data to this algorithm for whatever reason then you can opt-out at any time from your account preferences.

    Credits for unsubscribes

    We have moved to credit-based pricing and now charge a really small amount for each unsubscribe. 1 credit = 1 unsubscribe so each time you unsubscribe from a mailing list it will cost 1 credit.

    You will now see all of the subscription emails you have received, but you only need to pay for the ones you unsubscribe from.

    Credits can be purchased in packages of different amounts - just purchase what you need! You can earn more credits for inviting friends, tweeting about us, reaching milestones and more.

    packages

    If you aren't sure how many credits to buy then you can find out how many you might need by using the our estimator on the new pricing page!

    credits-estimator

    Password login + 2FA

    You can now sign up and log in using email and password for better privacy, and add two-factor authentication for extra security!

    2fa

    If you currently log in with Google or Microsoft and want to switch to using email & password please let us know and we can change your account.

    Even more open and transparent

    We take security and data privacy very seriously at Leave Me Alone. We have a brand new page dedicated to data and security where we are completely transparent about:

    • What permissions we request when you sign in using Google or Microsoft
    • The data we store to power our statistics and Subscriber Score algorithms
    • How to revoke permissions and deactivate your account at any time
    • Our commitment to you and our security features

    security

    New landing page design

    We have completely re-designed our home page to make everything more clean and simple.

    The core features that we provide are are on our homepage. We now have separate pages where you can learn lots more about how it works, read about our security, find out what package you might need, and discover more about us and our mission.

    Psst, did you have fun clicking to unsubscribe on our landing page?!

    You can now find us at .app

    Update your bookmarks and start sharing our new URL leavemealone.app!

    We asked you about our domain and nearly 1000 of you voted - thank you! The results were loud and clear, products using .app are trusted more than .xyz.

    We still love .xyz for prototyping and idea validation, but we are moving to a more recognised domain (especially outside the tech community) to help our reputation as we grow.

    Leave Me Alone for Enterprise

    It's finally here, Leave Me Alone for Enterprise.

    Receiving unwanted subscription emails is huge drain on time and productivity. You can now use Leave Me Alone at your company so that your whole team can keep a clean inbox, be happier, and focus on building your business.

    enterprise

    Our Enterprise prices let all of your employees completely clean their inbox for a fixed price per user. We support any Google or Microsoft email accounts, including those with custom domains on G Suite and Office 365.

    Interested or know any companies who might be? Get in touch on Twitter or send us an email!

  • Features 🌻

    Since our launch on Product Hunt at the end of January, James and I have been busy bees adding features and making lots of improvements.

    The most requested feature by far was support for more email providers, and we listened.

    Plus we have added several new features to make LMA even better and easier to use:

    See the worst spammers

    You can now see exactly how many emails you have received from a sender for your scan period, and identify who the "spammiest" senders are. This is James' favourite new feature!

    Spam folder scanning

    We already scanned your trash and now we also scan your spam folder so you can really clear out absolutely all of your subscription emails and get an even cleaner inbox!
