I have this as example entered in the field (Send notification to specific email address).,,

All 3 people get the email, but the last two should be BCC so that the first person doesn't see them on the to line.

What am I doing wrong

Hey there,

Thank you for contacting our support.

You need to use a hook, cred_notification_recipients, to include the BCC addresses.

More info on about the hook is available here:

Please check the example:

 * Customize CRED notification recipients by adding a BCC 
 * to the the notification "Content submitted"
add_filter('cred_notification_recipients', 'modify_recipients', 10, 4);
function modify_recipients($recipients, $notification, $form_id, $post_id) {
    // Check notification name matches target notification
    if ( isset($notification['name']) && 'Content submitted' == $notification['name'] ) {
        // Add a BCC to
        $recipients[] = array(
            'to'        =>  'bcc',
            'address'   => '',
            'name'      =>  '',
            'lastname'  =>  ''
    return $recipients;

Here are a few other similar examples for you to base on:

Please give it a try and tell us the results.

Best regards,
