Keeping your website forms secure and free from spam is not only important but should be simple.
And that’s why we’re excited to introduce you to our new hCaptcha integration, which is available to all users in WPForms v1.6.4.
But there’s more! Based on your feedback, we’re expanding our available marketing integrations with our new Sendinblue addon.
Secure Your Forms With hCaptcha
Earlier this year, we improved our built-in spam prevention, helping your forms to be much better protected right out of the box. However, we know that many users want to add an additional layer of protection that leverages advanced AI technology.
Our new hCaptcha integration provides you with more options when considering CAPTCHA services.
hCaptcha is a free tool that helps keep spam and bots out of your forms by asking simple questions to prove your users are human. They use sophisticated machine learning and AI to help distinguish human users from spam.
Whether you don’t have a Google account, you’re concerned about privacy issues or site conflicts, or just want to try a different way to block spam and malicious traffic through your web forms, hCaptcha makes it easy for you to get started with their free service.
And of course we’ve made it easy to add to your forms, too.
In WPForms settings, you’ll now see the option to use either hCaptcha or Google’s reCAPTCHA.
This is a great choice if you want your end-users to have a seamless experience submitting your forms, but don’t want to use Google’s reCAPTCHA. You can protect your forms from bots, spam, and break-ins, while keeping your information private.
Similar to reCAPTCHA settings, you can do things like adjust your Fail Message, enable No-Conflict Mode, and even get a preview of your CAPTCHA. All while looking super professional on your form’s frontend.
And since we added more options, we wanted to make sure these settings are crystal clear within the form builder. So, we’ve also made the CAPTCHA button in the form builder more detailed.
Now, once you pick your CAPTCHA service, you’ll see your choice right in the builder. So once your settings are enabled, you can simply hop into one of your forms and click on the hCaptcha button to access its settings.
We’re super excited about adding hCaptcha to WPForms and hope this extra option makes it easier for you to create smart contact forms that fit your website’s needs.

Speaking of having more options, we’ve got a brand new email marketing integration.
