Find and Unsubscribe from Unwanted Emails Instantly

Are you tired of seeing the same emails in your inbox over and over, but never get around to clicking “unsubscribe?” Or, would you prefer it if all of your subscription emails came in a single daily digest email? Enter unroll.me, a free service that will scan your inbox for subscription emails and provide a list for you to evaluate and manage. This service is available through both a browser and an app.

While the service is free, you will need to create an account. If you use Google for email and use your Google credentials to create the account, you can allow it access to your inbox in a single step. Unroll.me currently supports email accounts from Outlook.com (including Hotmail, MSN, & Windows Live), Gmail, Google Apps, Yahoo! Mail, AOL Mail, and iCloud. Be sure to make sure you are comfortable with unroll.me’s privacy policy before giving access.

Edit Subscriptions

To see the list of your current subscriptions, click on “Edit Subscriptions” in the top menu:

For each email subscription listed, you will have three options: add to rollup (single digest email), keep in inbox (leave alone), or unsubscribe.

List example with options

You may notice a company’s name appears more than once in your list. This is because some companies maintain separate lists based on interests. Be sure you are unsubscribing to the one you no longer want to receive.

Keep in mind that some things may appear as subscriptions that are actually notifications you may need, like appointment reminders.

Click “unsubscribe” and the line with that account disappears, indicating you are unsubscribed. No need to go to secondary pages to explain why you unsubscribed or be pressured into re-subscribing.

Add to Rollup

The rollup is a digest that gives you an overview of all the subscriptions you receive each day. The rollup will keep your inbox clean by organizing the subscriptions you select into a single daily digest email. You can choose whether to receive your rollup in the morning, afternoon, or evening.

If you decide to remove a subscription from your rollup, you can do so from the “Your Rollup” section of the top menu.

You will still be subscribed to the email, but it will appear outside your rollup.

If you decide you no longer want to receive a rollup at all, you can deactivate it in your account settings (three-bar icon next to your email address):

You will still be subscribed to the emails, but they will not appear in digest format.
