4. Select the toggle next to "Require verification to receive emails".


If you've already been added to a list without your permission here are a few things you can try:

  • If you have a Substack account, unsubscribe from the publication by following these steps.
  • If you can't access your Substack account, contact our Support team to request deletion of your account.
