Let us start . Number one on our list is “Virus Total”. This site definitely falls under the remarkably useful category. It’s called “VirusTotal”. What it does is it scans the file that you upload to the site.

If you download any suspicious file and your antivirus do not see that as harmful , this is useful.Just upload that file and the site checks it from several other antivirus programs.

Other case could be that you think a file is harmless and your antivirus shows that as harmful.In both cases, this site is really helpful.

Additionally , they offer a feature where you can search any website as well. If someone , somewhere, send you a link , you can check it easily whether it contains malware or not. This can be really handy sometimes. I suggest you check this site out.

 

2. Windows93

There are many windows 93 themed apps and games that you can use.Just check the site for yourself. There are a ton of stuff you can do to waste your time.Feel free to have this joyous experience.

3. Have I Been Pwned

Alright, number three is another important one, called “HavelBeenPwned”. In recent times, you may have heard about email leaks and data leaks.You may sometimes wonder whether your email was compromised by anyone or not.The point of this website is to check whether your email was actually compromised.

The way it works is, the site collects database when any potential breach ever occurs. When you type in your email, it checks your email over that database. That way, you know if your email was ever breached or not.

Another really important feature this site offers is you can sign up using your email to get notifications if your email is found during future data breaches.Let will let you know when that happens.  I personally recommend everyone to use this site and check their email regularly.I checked my email and found that my email was Pasted somewhere else in public.

 

4. 10-minute mail

Number four, we have a website called “10minutemail”. It generates a temporary email address for you that expires in 10 minutes. This is great if you come across a website that requires you to signup for an account to use it, but you know you’ll probably never use it again.

This site generates a throwaway email address for you so you don’t have to worry about your email getting hit by spam website. I personally, use this site whenever I visit a new site that asks for my email.

 

5. PixaBay

8. JustDeleteMe

10 Cool Websites You Never Knew You Needed

 

I personally never thought this kind of site even exists. JustDeleteMe is a website that makes deleting your account from any site/service easy. Just type in the site/service of which you want to delete your account. Boom, you don’t have to go through the hassle of searching through settings.

The site does that for you. Just click on the service name you search and then follow the link. It redirects you straight to account deletion page of that service.

It categories sites with difficulty in reaching the account deletion phase. Some sites let you delete your account easily. While some do not want you to do so and hide the option such that it is difficult to find.
