Online forms are a huge target for spammers. That’s why WPForms provides several ways to prevent spam.

WPForms uses the latest spam defense methods to combat spam, automatically. When you create a new form, our anti-spam feature is enabled by default inside your form settings.

Aside from leveraging our built-in anti-spam feature, WPForms also allows you to add a CAPTCHA to your WordPress forms. Our current options include the WPForms Custom Captcha addon, Google reCAPTCHA, and hCaptcha.

Google reCAPTCHA is a free service that uses advanced risk analysis and automated software to prevent spammers. It’s extremely easy to bypass for users but extremely hard to bypass for spambots. WPForms seamlessly integrates with all three versions of Google reCAPTCHA.

hCaptcha is a popular alternative to Google’s reCAPTCHA, with an emphasis on privacy. Their privacy policy is compatible with recent regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. WPForms directly integrates with hCaptcha with only a few clicks.

At WPForms, we make it really easy for you to enable CAPTCHA protection.
