Anonymous email app Leak is down due to overnight success

Sarah Silbert

The anonymous email app Leak just launched in late July, but it's already been shut down -- for the time being, at least. The service, which lets you send emails to anyone without identifying yourself, was built over a weekend, and its creators used the Mandrill (MailChimp) API rather than building an email server of their own. Mandrill suspended the team's account -- likely because Leak didn't conform to the service's focus on opt-in emails -- so now the minds behind Leak are scrambling to find a new solution. If you can't wait for another opportunity to send an anonymous confession to your coworkers, you can keep tabs on this page to see when Leak is back. And hey, there are always the Secret and Whisper apps in the meantime.
