Support » Plugin: PayPal Donations » URGENT – Email Address Visible in plain text!!!

  • After adding the paypal button, the email address has been found in plain text with Woorank tool.

    In addition, by inspecting the page, actually the email address is entirely visible!

    <div class=”paypal-donations”> <input type=”hidden” name=”cmd” value=”_donations”> <input type=”hidden” name=”bn” value=”TipsandTricks_SP”> <input type=”hidden” name=”business” value=”EMAIL.ADDRESS@GMAIL.COM”> <input type=”hidden” name=”return” value=”DOMAINURL”> <input type=”hidden” name=”item_name” value=”

    I’ve also got a message in the upper WordPress black bar saying that 1 email address is not protected.

    Hi, that is how the plugin works. Do you want to hide the email in the source code?

    Thank you

    Yes, how can be hidden?

    Thanks you!

    That is how a standard HTML paypal donation button works. Nothing wrong with it. It needs to be that way for the PayPal button to work correctly.

    Maybe you can try a different plugin.

    This is wrong. You do not need to expose an email address in plain text.

    You can see that here: https://www.lunarsoft.net/donate
