reCaptcha Mailhide – protect your email address from online spammers


reCaptcha Mailhide is a clever way to protect your email address from online spam harvesters. Instead of using old techniques like name at domain dot com, or scrambling your online email address with a tool like AddressMunger, you can use this free service to attach a CAPTCHA to the text.


Just input your email address in the box, and the system will spit out a chunk of code you can embed on the website to obscure your address until someone completes the test. That way you know that autobots can’t access it. It won’t stop determined spammers who use cheap human labour of course, but it’s better than nothing.

 Tired of spam? reCAPTCHA Mailhide helps you protect your inbox by asking people to solve a reCAPTCHA before they can view your email address. The reCAPTCHA can only be solved by humans, so this stops spammers from gaining access to your email address through automated programs.
