Leak is a service that lets you send an anonymous email to anyone with clues about your identity such as “from a coworker” or “from a family member,” or simply “from someone.”
In a new turn, Leak has shut down after getting kicked off of the email service that enabled Leak to work, SendGrid, according to TechCrunch.
Leak detailed the issues in a blog post titled “Why we are forced to suspend Leak … for a while,” which explains that this is actually the second time the company has faced issues finding a platform on which to process and send the emails.
It sounds as if Leak will try to find a new home — the blog post mentions that the founders are “working like hell” to bring the service back, and it offers a link so users can be notified if the website returns.
Until then, you can always slip someone an old-fashioned anonymous hand-written note, or check out some examples of Leaks that have already been sent:
