Product Announcements – Tension Software of Milano, Italy has released Email Obfuscator 1.3.2 for macOS web developers to obfuscate email addresses inside web pages. Email Obfuscator is a tool useful for anyone creating and editing web pages. It creates email links using ‘obfuscated’ code. The obfuscated link can be put inside any web page and it is not recognized by Bot surfing the net collecting emails
Obfuscated means that:
- From the user point of view, nothing changes and the user still is presented with an email link
- The link is perfectly working and a web user clicking on the link has the email client presenting the email, ready to be sent with the email address and (optionally the subject) filled with the correct values.
- AND MORE IMPORTANTLY: A link created in that way can’t be easily recognized by bot and software that surf the internet collecting emails from email links.
- The obtained obfuscated code can be copied and pasted in any web page using any HTML editor.
- Email Obfuscator uses a single window where you can insert:
- the email
- the text link
the email subject [optionally]
The obfuscated code is created inside Email Obfuscator as-you-type. Selecting one of the different methods of obfuscation the code is re-created instantly. Email Obfuscator offers instant preview and test of the generated code inside the window using an internal web view (webkit based).
