Introducing double opt-in subscriptions
We’re happy to announce today that we’re launching double opt-in for StatusPage subscribers. This should make the StatusPage experience even better for page owners, team members, and subscribers.
Now when people subscribe to email updates on your status page, they’ll receive a confirmation email. They will need to click a confirmation link on this email before they receive future updates from your page.
This should help with account security and cut down on potential spam accounts. It should also help our emails deliver even faster and more reliably. As a page owner, we hope it gives you peace of mind knowing that there’s a real person behind all those email addresses in your subscriber log.
You’ll also notice we’re going to be rebuilding the way we display subscribers in your account’s subscriber table. You’ll be able to easily see who has signed up, who has confirmed and who hasn’t.
The change only takes effect for new subscribers. People who previously subscribed before now won’t need to opt in.
