Antideo was acquired by Bizmindz Technologies in March 2019, aligning to the company’s vision of offering tools for businesses to improve the way they work.
The new Antideo WordPress plugin provides real-time email validation and contact form spam protection. The ‘Antideo Email Validator’ plugin is suited for WordPress sites with contact forms. The plugin would fit the needs of WordPress websites of any size irrespective of the volume of traffic. It may help them to prevent scammers and spammers sending fake inquiries using fake email addresses.
Antideo Email Checker
The Antideo Email Checker has a number of features that work in real time when a website visitor fills up a contact form, geared towards reducing fake inquiries. The primary capabilities offered by the WordPress plugin include:
- Email syntax validation
- Disposable email check
- MX Records check
- Free email check
- Generic email check
- Local whitelist of emails and domains
- Local blacklist of emails and domains
The Antideo Email Validator helps reduce spam that comes through contact forms which end up wasting valuable marketing resources. The solution works in real-time so that the visitors filling up the contact form get an error message immediately, pushing them to enter their valid email address. The plugin also allows the users to weed out free emails from ESP’s like Gmail, Yahoo, AOL etc. as well as role-based emails like [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], et cetera. This specific feature would come in handy for websites selling B2B.
