OTE : One Time Email
ote is a command line utility that generates temporary email address and automatically extracts OTPs or confirmation links from the incoming mails. It uses 1secmail.com's API to generate temporary emails.
It can be installed with pip as follows:
pip3 install ote
ote in your terminal, a random email address will be generated for you. Any OTP or confirmation link sent to this address will be printed on your terminal.
- If the link/OTP is not accurate, enter 'f' to print the link to the email to check it yourself.
- If you want to open the confirmation link in your browser right away, enter 'o'
- To quit, either enter 'q' or press Ctrl+C
Note: If your OTP or link was a false positive or was not detected at all, please create an issue with the email body attached. The more variations of OTPs we have, the better the detection will get over time.
