Welcome to WebEmailProtector’s Email Address Security plugin for WordPress.

Using the WebEmailProtector service you can safely put Email Addresses on your website with confidence that they will be truly hidden from being scraped and harvested because they are no longer actually on your web site itself.

Instead they are replaced by an IES encrypted Email Security Key..

Just Register the Emails you want to use, Validate that everything is set up and then place the email in Square Brackets [youremail@yourdomain.com] anywhere on you site and the Plugin will do the rest.

What does it do?

Instead of simple Javascript client side “encoders”, that just obfuscate and inevitably include the email decoding fomula for the browser and so are inherently unsecure, ours is “server side” on a secure cloud based server with an encrypted Email Security Key – akin to public key encryption.

And in response to comments – we do not store the emails themselves just an encryption key to the email address – there is quite a difference.

WebEmailProtector detects who and what is trying to access the Key on your site at the time of clicking, and then deploys algorithms to validate whether this request is being made by a credible, bona-fide visitor.

The algoriths check multiple points about the request using our robust, proven Artifical Intelligence (AI) derived method.

After running the validation process, the email address is only returned from the Key if certain criteria are met and others not broken.

This method stops attacks and ID theft perpetrators at source, and keeps your address private. Simple to use and fully supported.

Check Out Your Site

As a start why not check how secure your existing pages are using our email finder tool at https://www.webemailprotector.com/sitescan.html?

Note this simple tester will not attempt JavaScript encoders due to security risks.
