Description

I know this is a clever idea but this would help to stop spamming and also prevent auto bots to scrap your site for emails. Just a suggestion. I hope the next build will be implementing this. I want to contribute... this is my first report.

@warengonzaga Can you provide more details? I am not sure which feature you are referring to. Bots are not able to access the Customizer, and there are no email fields there by default. Are you using a default theme?

I am using different themes but I know there is a way to make this feature default to all theme makers. So every time we add an email address or phone number details or sensitive information it should obfuscate automatically. The best idea to make this information converted to HTML entities and will render normally in the front end.

@warengonzaga, sorry if I am missing something obvious, but I still do not know what feature you are actually referring to. Can you maybe provide some screenshots? Or some steps to take to see the feature you are talking about?
