In order for the app to protect your mailbox from annoying spam, you must first connect Cleanfox to your mailbox. To do this, you must log in with your email account and then confirm your registration using 2-factor authentication.
After completing the first step, you now need to decide which newsletter you want to remove from your inbox. To make your selection easier, the app shows you how many emails you have received from the respective newsletter and how often you open the newsletter. The app then gives you three options on how to deal with the newsletter:
Cancel: With this option you can unsubscribe from the newsletter, but you will keep the emails that you have previously received from this newsletter. Delete and unsubscribe: By clicking on this option you will delete all emails and unsubscribe from the newsletter at the same time. Keep: With this With this option, no emails will be deleted and you will continue to receive the newsletter. Under “Statistics” Cleanfox shows you how many emails you have already deleted and how many newsletters have already been automatically deleted by the app. In addition, Cleanfox indicates how much CO2 you have saved by using the app. As a reason for these savings, Cleanfox states in the Google Play Store that an email emits around 10 grams of CO2 per year. Cleanfox also supports the environment by planting trees every time users invite their friends to use Cleanfox via code.
