Why Obfuscate Emails?

Email harvesters and bots are roaming the Internet looking for email addresses to add to their spam lists. For every email that is on a public facing page, that email address can expect to receive 800 spam messages the following year. Web masters have created clever ways to protect against this by writing out email addresses (i.e. help [at] toolsadda [dot] com) or by using embedded images of the email address. Although these methods work, you lose the ease of being able to click on the email address and automatically send an email.

By using this Email Address Obfuscation tool, email addresses on your web page will be obfuscated (hidden) from bots, while keeping them visible to humans. There are no visible changes to your website for visitors.

There are a number of spambots which roam the web harvesting email addresses to send spam to. Often you have no choice but to include a mailto link with an email address in a web page. Fortunately most of these spambots do not seem to have complete HTML parsers.

This free Email Address Obfuscator uses obfuscation to generate a "mailto:" link which will confuse naive spambots, but will still work in standard browsers. This is a free online tool to obfuscate email addresses so spammers can't find them.
