Happy new year - 2021 roadmap
Sun, 3 Jan 2021 14:15 (UTC)

2020 was great: I introduced the dark mode for the website and a self-hosted version of Spamty. You supported Spamty with donations in the amount of 36.55 €. For 2021 I am planning to improve the translations for the website and enhance the self-hosted version.

Self-hosted version of Spamty available
Sat, 12 Dec 2020 09:58 (UTC)

I created a small PHP script to run a self-hosted version of Spamty. You can get it on GitHub and upload it to your web server. You can link to this script so people will have to solve a captcha before they can view your email address.

Dark mode available
Fri, 11 Dec 2020 21:26 (UTC)

Introducing the dark mode for the Spamty.eu website: if your browser supports 'prefers-color-scheme' and you set it up to use dark mode this website will be displayed in a dark color scheme. This is supported in the latest versions of Chrome, Safari, Edge and the desktop version of Firefox.

v2 and v3 links are invalid - data was deleted
Fri, 30 Oct 2020 20:18 (UTC)

Old links that have 'v2' or 'v3' in it (links that were created in 2014 and 2015) are now invalid. The data was deleted from our database. We had to do this because the 'mcrypt' encryption module was deprecated and removed with PHP 7.2.

v1 links are invalid now - data was deleted
Thu, 24 Sep 2020 20:23 (UTC)

Old links that have 'v1' in it (Spamty links that were created before 2014) are now invalid. The data was deleted from our database. We had to do this because the encryption algorithm that was used before 2014 for Spamty is considered insecure.

v2 and v3 links will become invalid soon
Mon, 7 Sep 2020 19:27 (UTC)

Spamty links that have 'v2' or 'v3' in it (links that were created in 2014 and 2015) will become invalid on 2020/10/30. This only concerns approximately 200 users. The data will be deleted from our database and the links will not work anymore. This is because the 'mcrypt' encryption module was deprecated with PHP 7.1 (in late 2016) and was removed with PHP 7.2 (in late 2017).

New page to show donations and costs
Sat, 29 Aug 2020 14:26 (UTC)

I am more transparant by showing all received donations (via PayPal and crypto currencies) and the detailed costs for servers and domains.

Spamty.eu is a great alternative for reCAPTCHA Mailhide
Mon, 17 Aug 2020 12:52 (UTC)

The reCAPTCHA Mailhide service was discontinued by Google. Spamty offers a great alternative to this service. Even better: Spamty is GDPR compliant and encrypts all data.

v1 links will become invalid soon
Sat, 15 Aug 2020 15:59 (UTC)

Old links that have 'v1' in it (Spamty links that were created before 2014) will become invalid on 2020/09/24. This only concerns approximately 50 users. Please make sure to create a new Spamty link. All old data will be deleted on this date. We have to do this because the encryption algorithm that was used back then is considered insecure since a long time.

Cloudbleed
Sun, 26 Feb 2017 07:04 (UTC)

There was a security problem with Cloudflare. We are pretty sure that no private data from Spamty.eu was leaked but for security reasons all API keys were renewed.

Spamty via Tor
Sat, 13 Aug 2016 11:12 (UTC)

The Spamty website is now accessible via Tor. Get the Tor browser and safely browse the Internet. You can simply replace the spamty.eu domain in your links to our .onion domain to share your email address on the darknet.

HTTPS is available everywhere
Sat, 6 Feb 2016 13:12 (UTC)

We moved the complete site to a new server and added Let's Encrypt SSL certificates everywhere.

Version 4
Fri, 21 Aug 2015 16:05 (UTC)

The first functions of the new API version 4 are online. You now have to authenticate with an additional username to your API key and the API requests are logged. Furthermore the API now uses HTTPS only.

New API documentation
Mon, 3 Aug 2015 17:51 (UTC)

I published the new API documentation for spamty.eu. Furthermore we introduced a new API method to shorten a link with a URL shortener.

Update on version 3
Sat, 13 Jun 2015 12:41 (UTC)

We have updated our System to version 3. Spamty Links are now shorter. The API is not available yet.

Multilingual Spamty
Sun, 29 Mar 2015 17:32 (UTC)

I'm currently working on a multilingual website for spamty. The English version is nearly finished. Then I will start translating it into German. Please contact me if you could help translating the website into French, Spanish or any other language.
