Email is currently one of the most used media for official communication purposes. Often as we surf the internet, there are numerous prompts that prompt internet users to subscribe to a mailing service in order to for them to get a particular service. After a while, you will have subscribed to quite a number of mailing lists that you may no longer need. These mailing services end up cluttering your email inbox hence distracting you from reading a useful email. By the time you realize you have subscribed to way too many mailing lists, unsubscribing from each becomes a losing battle. However, Unroll Me was developed to make it easier and efficient.
Unroll Me is an email management service that helps users to unsubscribe from unwanted mailing lists instantly. Besides, the service helps you to organize your inbox efficiently. This email management service is free and was founded in 2011 by Jojo Hedaya, Josh Rosenwald, Steve Greenberg, and Perri Blake Gorman. The service is simplistic and uses simple steps to attain its intended purpose. Once you sign up for the service, you are presented with the following options; unsubscribe, keep it in your inbox, and add your subscription to the roll up. The option roll up in the service is so intuitive that it even organizes and prioritizes each email putting them in an individual category and hence a cleaner inbox. The unsubscribe option enables users to unsubscribe from multiple subscriptions with a single click while the roll up option gives you a daily summary of your subscriptions for easier management.
Just three years after inception, Unroll me was acquired by slice technologies at an undisclosed amount. The company has continued to offer free email management services to all users globally. However, the company announced that beginning from May 2018, their services will not be available to users in Europe as a result of the GDPR Data Privacy regulation enforcement. This, however, does not mean that the company does not comply with all the GDPR requirements, it is just a few portions of the enforcement, but the company does not specify the portions of the regulation it cannot comply with.
