All right, so it was just Black Friday and everybody’s inboxes got absolutely destroyed. You were getting emails from companies you haven’t heard from in over a decade. So what do you do about it? You could spend an entire day going through and unsubscribing to email list, or you could use the service that I’m going to show you in this video, which is called Unroll Me. This is a totally free service from the Nielsen Company, which if you know anything about ratings and television in America, you’ll know that they’re just mining for data. That’s why this service is free. And I’m totally okay with that because they’re only going to have access to my email for a matter of minutes while I’m in there unsubscribing from email list and then I’m going to get out. Here, let me show you how it works.

So this is unroll me.

It’s a free service to get rid.

Of all of those email subscriptions that you don’t want to have in one go will be done in just a matter of moments and your inbox will not feel so burdensome any longer. So I’m going to go ahead and sign up for fleeq here. This is a totally free service and in fact, I’m going to cancel it by the end of this video. It’s going to be really short, so I’m going to sign in with Google. The sign in process is a little bit annoyingly complex. So basically you’re giving them like complete permission to get into your inbox. So I’m sure Google has some kind of weird requirements in order to give them that much permission. So you can actually go ahead and scan one of these little app widgets here and it will pull up on your phone. I’m going to do the manual upgrade here. It says this process can be tricky and take some time. It’s not that bad. So basically what we have to do is make sure we have two factor on on our Google account, which you should have anyway. And then we just have to create an app password.

So I’m going to click this second button here because I know that I already have two step enabled. All right, so creating an app password inside of Google fairly easy. We’re going to go ahead and give it a custom name here. I’ll call it unroll me and hit generate. Then the password pops up on your screen, copy it to your clipboard, make sure it’s there before you go ahead and hit done. Otherwise you’ll have to repeat that step again. And then we’re going to jump back over to Enroll Me. Alright. So it turns out I actually had to click into Google to verify that I had two step, even though I already created an app password. Kind of a silly process, but that’s what you have to do. So you do have to click on both of these. Let’s go ahead and hit continue. Paste in your app password and hit continue again. All right, let’s go. That’s going to give me a bunch of little instructions here. It’s all fairly straightforward. You don’t need to read any of that. So what it’s doing right now is going through all of my email ever and looking for email subscriptions.

And I’m going to show you just how easy it is to clean up unwanted email subs in a matter of moments. All right. They found some subscriptions. Apparently I’ve been busy. 294 let’s go ahead and start editing. So the first thing it’s going to ask you is to add some to your roll up, which is essentially like a digest of the subscriptions that you get. I’m not going to continue to use this service long term, so I’m going to ignore that. Now next we’re going to go through alphabetically and do some arbitrage. Do you want to add it to our roll up? No. We can say that 100% of the time keeping the inbox or unsubscribe. Now you don’t have to mark each one as keeping the inbox boxes, just kind of to get through things. So I’m going to save you the pain of going through all 290 some email subscriptions here and we’ll just pretend like I’d gone through and arbitrage this entire inbox. I’m going to unsubscribe from a couple more here just to be thorough. I don’t know who this guy is. No offense, Gary. I’m not sure who this person is either.

All right, so I pretend I’m all the way done. Now I’m going to hit finish editing and then I can share on Facebook, which I do not want to do, and hit continue. Now when you’re all done, you’re simply going to go up to your account, go under Settings, and then delete your account. And then you’re done. They won’t have access to your account any longer. Now you could go back into Google and just make sure that everything is completely deleted. I’ll show you how to do that. All right, so what you’re going to do is click on this little grid of boxes up here and go to your account. And then you’re going to go to Data and Privacy. Now scroll down here and you’re going to see who has access to your account. It’s right here under Data from apps and services you use. So I’m going to click down here for third party apps and you’ll be able to see the list of apps that I’ve approved. You might be surprised by some that are still in here that you’re no longer using. So go ahead and clean up anything that no longer belongs.

But one thing I’ve noticed is that enroll me was pretty good here and they deleted access so it didn’t linger around and I’m now good to go.

So that was enroll me. Now you would have known about this tool weeks ago if you are a subscriber to my weekly newsletter dave’s Toolbox. You can get subscribed totally for free subscribe. I’ll leave a link down below. What do you think of enroll me? Are there any other tools similar to it that you prefer? Let me know in the comments.

I’ll be checking for your responses.

Thank you so much for watching and I’ll see you in the next video.
