Welcome to Known.Email
The nice little email secret in town!
Known.Email is a specialized, free email service to help you access merchants' websites/apps without passwords. Such merchants have to integrate our simple API first to get the password-less capability.
If you are wondering who a "merchant" is? ... Well, a merchant is anyone who has setup a "gated" website or app or desktop application. By "gated" we mean, a website/app/application where a membership is needed to enter and use it.
It is important that you read our general FAQ before reading this documentation. Here is the link: https://known.email/faq

Even if merchants are not yet aware of us, as a user you have nothing to worry! ALL websites/apps that allow registrations with an email address can also use our system. It is after all a specialized email service.
Feel free to use the 5 free aliases as email addresses you can setup in your account to register and login to conventional websites/apps! You will miss the advanced features here but yet you can have a much more easier life than using your regular email. Simply add @my.known.email to the alias to convert it into an email address.
Psst... why don't you convince those sites/apps to implement our system? It will save both you and the merchant, a ton of headaches!
