RSS.com is excited to announce new privacy improvements to better protect the identities of our podcasters from spammers.
Starting immediately, email addresses that are associated with a user’s podcast and included in publicly available RSS feeds will be removed and replaced with an anonymous identifier.
Historically, email addresses were included in a show’s RSS feed and could easily be scrapped by bots and bad actors and used for spam, phishing scams, identity theft and other malicious activities.
By removing email addresses from RSS feeds, RSS.com is providing an extra layer of protection to keep our podcaster’s email addresses private.
At RSS.com, we put our podcasters first, and are pleased to release this feature to help better protect our users.
