MailChimp List Subscribe Form
Link for users already list members is flagged as phishing (4 posts)

    For users using Safari, if they use the form, they are sent a link to access their profile for the list, but because the URL contains their email address, Safari (mis)identifies the link as a phishing attempt.

    Hey there,

    I wasn't able to quite replicate this on my end. Would you be able to provide me with the version of Safari you're running, as well as a step-by-step workflow so that I can attempt to see the issue on my end?

    I look forward to hearing back!

    Sorry for the delay. I'm actually reporting this on behalf of a colleague. I had him write up a description with screenshots and version info: HERE

    Hey gwsuperfan,

    Thanks for the reply and please thank your colleague for the thorough report about what they're seeing. I'm going to pass along the scenarios/situations to be investigated a bit further on our end.

    In the mean time, you can let your colleague know that the $username variable in the code snippet provided can be replaced with anything of their choosing, since the URLs are designed in a way that will allow that portion of the URL to be changed without affecting the functionality of the signup form.

    Thanks again!
