[Forminator Pro] SPAM Filter

What Forminator offers in terms of spam or what would you suggest ?

    Hello Brian Haas

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Currently Forminator provides Google reCaptcha integration which you may configure on "Forminator Pro -> Settings -> Google reCAPTCHA" page. Adding reCaptcha to forms is quite a common solution so most users are used to it and it's one of the most efficient solutions that could be implemented on "form level" without including any additional 3rd-party services or server-side solutions for e-mail analysis.

    Additionally, there's a "Honeypot protection" option that you can enable in "Behavior" section of the form configuration (so on "Forms -> [edit selected form] -> Behaviour" page). It's a trick that attempts to "fool" spam bots by serving them with a "hidden challenge" that wouldn't be visible to human but is treated as a regular form field by the bot. So, if the bot tries to solve it, Forminator knows it's an actual bot and not a real human submitting the form.

    I'd say that together both these tools should provide quite a nice level of spam prevention.

    Best regards,
    Adam
