Any way I can verify that Email Address Obfuscation is working?

So I’m using Scrape Shield’s Email Address Obfuscation on my website, but how can I verify that it successfully obfuscates email addresses on my website from bots? I don’t have any web crawlers lying around to test this.

I’ve tried a Wayback Machine snapshot that failed to make a snapshot (I kind of like it that way), and also the Googlebot Simulator at https://www.dnsqueries.com/en/googlebot_simulator.php, which also failed to do a crawl (exactly how I like it too).

If you look at your page source, the email address should be obfuscated.

Oh, you’re right. I even found what they replaced the href with:
/cdn-cgi/l/email-protection#[long-string-of-some-kind-here]
