The original and main focus of i Tunes is music, with a library offering organization, collection, and storage of users' music collections.

It can be used to rip songs from CDs, as well as play content with the use of dynamic, smart playlists.

They do this by sending a single email - normally with a clickable confirmation link - to the email address entered on their subscription form. But when it comes to the benefits of double opt-in, don't just take my word for it.

If you don't respond to the confirmation email, you don't get any follow-up emails. Here's what Mail Chimp, a service that I and millions of others around the world use to send out email newsletters, was saying until quite recently: All very sensible.

Now an independent security analyst, he regularly makes media appearances and gives presentations on the topic of computer security and online privacy.

Follow him on Twitter at @gcluley, Google Plus, Facebook, or drop him an email.

And a good example of why, in the past, I have recommended Mail Chimp to organisations and individuals wishing to send out legitimate email newsletters. after years of protecting internet users from unwanted newsletter subscriptions, Mail Chimp has had a change of heart.

Last week it quietly (I only found out by logging into my account, I never - ironically - received an email advisory from them) revealed that it would be switching its customers' mailing lists to "single opt-in" rather than "double opt-in". It means that subscribers won't have to confirm that they really really want to receive a newsletter.

Customers located in the EU will receive an email from us today to let them know how we’ve changed the plan." "Please know we are committed to helping our customers get ready for the GDPR.

Double opt-in provides additional proof of consent, and we suggest you continue using double opt-in if your business will be subject to the GDPR." (By the way Mail Chimp, I still haven't received the first email - let alone the one you promise here) So, Mail Chimp is turning around for lists run by European firms at least - we'll stay as double opt-in by default.

Changing the settings for my own mailing list (which of course, I did) isn't actually a solution.
