New & Bamboozled


I’m new here and just signed up for an account - well, I hit the FREE button and some dashboard has launched with a thousand and one options I know virtually nothing about!

Basically I’m running a small non-profit web site and wanted to obscure email addresses (so they can’t be scraped) - an advisor at our hosting (Clook) said to look at Cloudflare. So here I am.

But I have no idea what Cloudflare will actually do if I add our website. I want to obfuscatte email addresses, and would like to know how to do that. But maybe there are other protections which are automatically triggered when I add outr site here?

Sorry, I’m not very technical - I don’t even know what a CDN is! (though apparently the web says cloudflare is a ‘CDN’. Right… :thinking:

Any simple guidance , especially about email obfuscation, would be welcome.

Many thanks
