Simple tool provides code to cloak HTML email addresses to prevent harvesting by spam spiders. At present some programs collecting email addresses can already decrypt addresses encrypted with almost any method and add them to their database. Neither javascript cloak, nor html cloak can help. To protect against such email harvesters, you should not specify your email address on Web pages in any form (neither plain nor encrypted) and Email Cloaker for Web 1.2 allows you to protect your addresses in such a way.

Excellent work. I am very grateful for this simple, yet useful application. The Unbreakable HTML Cloak is the only way to truly protect your email address from spam harvesters.

Fine idea. Looks like a new way of spam protection... But what about privacy? Is it secure?

Use SpamStopper: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/10623.

This app looks like an attampt at ripping-off RAILhead Design's software, though SpamStopper has a LOT more features -- and yes, it's free, too.

Anonymous, this method of "cloaking" is very popular, so most email spiders can easily harvest your email address and create lists for SPAM:)

It's better to encode it with Email Cloaker.

Not everyone/everything (person/machine) is savvy enough to translate something like "user at example dot net" into a valid e-mail address. That method of obfuscation may be useful and sufficient in certain contexts, but it's too "geeky" in situations where it's important for certain people to make convenient contact. Really, it would only take a couple minutes to find someone who doesn't understand it.

I don't claim to be an expert on which people-friendly, spam-unfriendly contact methods to use but anyone who disagrees with my observation about that particular type of address obfuscation is living in a vacuum, isolated from the reality of how naive and ignorant many Internet users still are about what others take for granted.
