Reading Time: 4 minutes

Email newsletters and mobile subscriptions are well-known marketing strategies. Many businesses, freelancers, individuals offer this option to their target audience. It helps the brands and customers stay in touch with each other. Customers can know about the latest developments and gain access to special offers before others. 

As the number of subscribers grow, businesses notice empty signups and fake accounts increasing in the list. While some emails ids and phone numbers are left unused or changed, others are spammers who wish to take advantage of the subscription system for their personal gains. Brands have to regularly filter such email ids and update their mailing lists. 

Not doing so, can lead to many email bounces which could result in the blacklisting of the registered domain address through which the brand sends the newsletters and promotional emails. Even though mailer companies provide options to screen the email ids, having an integrated system within the enterprise will be more beneficial to the business.

We have installed the Antideo WordPress plug-in and were surprised to see how efficient it is. A big list of email ids that were filtered and blocked right during form submission without those entering our lists. The dashboard allowed us to see the number of email addresses that were blocked and also a complete list of every email address that was blocked. Also the feature to maintain our own blacklist and whitelist for email addresses and domains is handy.

Antideo is definitely a must for every website that has a form, to stop spamming
