Posting your email on your own website shouldn’t lead to an inbox full of spam. Luckily, there’s a middle ground between giving your audience no way to reach you and handing bots and malware everything to use against you.

The Email Protection WordPress Plugin hides your email from web crawlers that log and use your information, but still makes it easy for your readers to contact you. For a limited time, this one-time purchase is on sale for just $9.99 (regularly $37).

Hide your email address

Email security isn’t just about backing up your data and ignoring weird messages about your car’s extended warranty. As of April 2018, spam accounted for more than 40% of all emails in the world. And looking at your inbox, it might feel like your email has about half of that.

Unfortunately, running your own website can make your email address available to every spambot in the world. But this Email Protection WordPress Plugin hides your email from bots that grab and log emails from WordPress sites, so you’ll have one more tool to help you turn the tide against spammers.

The Email Protection Plugin is easy to use. It takes just a few clicks to install, a few more to configure, and then the protection is automatic. You don’t need to know how to code, and you don’t need to redesign your website. You can still customize the font, size and color of your protected email address wherever it appears, too.

Your email is a single point of failure for your cybersecurity, meaning if someone gets in, they can get into a lot of other stuff. This WordPress plugin protects your email address by wiping it from the source code on your page and transforming your email link into a clickable image that opens an email client.

Your email address will be hidden from bots — but any person on your site can still contact you with it. You also can create shortcodes that let you insert protected emails into your website immediately. Plus, you can export settings and move everything between websites seamlessly if you run multiple sites.
