BugMeNot.com is a website which stores username and passwords of many free websites on the Internet. Many website requires you to sign up to access content for no charge but you can end up getting spam emails from many such sites.
So as a challenge to this privacy risk BugMeNot.com was founded by a person named as Guy King. BugMeNot.com only has username and passwords to free registration sites and they do not accept nor has any login info to Pay sites.
So why do you want to use BugMeNot.com anyways?
- Sometimes it gets too complicated in registering for a free website and also remembering your login info after some days.
- You do not want to give out your email because you fear that spam will be bombarded to your inbox.
- You are tired and sick of entering your personal details to get access to free content.
Well the reasons are plenty, as a blogger I can tell you that one should fill out a registration form only if it really necessary. There shouldn’t be any compulsion to register for an account to get access to free content on the Internet. I guess that’s just me, hmm opinions differs with different people.
