What is the email used for when I run certbot at the first time?
In the beginning, I thought it was not really useful and I really want some kind of privacy and don’t want people know my email from the public cert. So I gave an invalid email. But after the first run, I figured out the email becomes my account. That is something I don’t expect and no warning at all at the beginning of the script prompt. So I am wondering what the email address will be used for exactly here. Will the applied private key be send to that email?
The reason why I really care about it because I am living in a country which has internet censorship. By registering domain outside my country, by visiting google is illegal here and will go to jail if they find out.
Due to the invalid email address, I am thinking to do either
certbot register --update-registration
rm -rf /etc/letsencrypt
Thank you very much for your help.
