In the last few months, the podcasting community has expressed that they’ve been receiving countless spam emails from third parties. Much of this has been from spam bots scanning RSS feeds, discovering emails, and sending spam their way (which is no bueno in our book).
Podbean has taken the next steps to protect podcaster’s privacy by removing your email address from your show’s RSS feed! Podbean will no longer require your email to be part of your RSS feed. Podbean will hide the email in your podcast’s RSS feed.
Some directories will still require email verification when you submit to them. No problem! Podbean will allow podcasters to temporarily display an email in their RSS Feed for 48 hours when they want to submit their podcasts to a directory that requires email verification. Podbean will then automatically remove the email 48 hours later.
Your privacy is important to Podbean. We are excited to make this update for our podcasting community and to do our part to help fight against spam! 🤖
