Online forms are a huge target for spammers. That’s why WPForms provides several ways to prevent spam.
WPForms uses the smart honeypot technique to combat spam. The reason why the Honeypot technique is so popular is because it prevents spam without interfering with the user experience.
Aside from leveraging honeypot, WPForms also allows you to add CAPTCHA to your WordPress forms.
WPForms takes advantage of the reCAPTCHA project by Google to reduce spam submissions on your forms.
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 spam bots.
At WPForms, we make it really easy for you to enable reCAPTCHA. Simply enter your API key and check the box, and CAPTCHA will be added to your WordPress forms.
