A disposable email address is an email account created with the intention of being temporary and/or easily disposable. There are several services that provide disposable email addresses such as temp-mail, Simplelogin, or 10MinuteMail. The addresses provided by such services are not intended to serve as long-term, reliable communication channels.
While there are several legitimate uses for disposable email services, such as one-time anonymous communication or signing up for unimportant websites/apps that require an email, using a disposable email account to sign up for a public git repository and distribute code can be indicative of trying to hide malicious activity.
