It has been an increasing trend that most mailers are deploying enhanced layer of security for email content to be checked thoroughly before reaching the recipients. 

The email undergoes automated scanning for:

- Viruses

- Malware

- Spam

- Evaluation of Links and Attachments

- etc....

During this scan, the email scanners invoke URLs for verification, essentially acting on behalf of recipients if Email Link scanning is enabled on the Recipient's Mailer.

Consequently, this could lead to automated submissions or the full utilization of promotional codes via a registration link, impacting the registration process.

About the Feature

In response to this need, a feature has been developed to safeguard the integrity of the registration process. This tool assists organisers in preventing URL invocations by bots, thereby ensuring that the intended recipient takes the necessary action.

Under Forms, there is an option "Protect URL invocations". It is enabled by default.

- Organisers have the flexibility to disable or re-enable it as needed.

- CTA Text is editable. It is limited to 50 characters for optimal display.

The Outcome

In this proactive measure, the protective measure is exclusively applied to direct purchases or specific invitation links. Accessing these registration links, registrants will encounter a pop-up where they can click on the designated CTA button to proceed with the registration process.

**This is not applied to the Registration Landing Page.
