Definition[edit | edit source]

In the context of correspondence, blind carbon copy (Bcc) refers to the practice of sending a message to multiple recipients in a way that conceals the fact that there may be additional addresses from the complete list of recipients. This concept originally applied to paper correspondence and now also applies to email.

With email, "Bcc:" refers to those recipients who receive the message but whose identity cannot be seen by the other recipients of the message. Depending on the email software, the Bcc recipients may only see their own email address or may see the email addresses of all recipients.
