Are you getting bombarded with spam submissions on your Elementor forms? It’s an annoying problem that’s all too common, but thankfully there are some simple steps you can take to stop the spam.
First, it’s important to understand why you’re getting so much spam. Spammers use automated programs to search the web for vulnerable forms, and Elementor forms are no exception. They then use these forms to send out spam messages or links to malicious websites.
So, how do you stop it?
The most effective way to prevent spam submissions is to use a CAPTCHA. This is a challenge-response test that requires the user to prove they are human. You can easily add one to your Elementor forms by going to the Settings tab and selecting the “Enable CAPTCHA” option.
Another way to reduce spam is to use a honeypot field. This is a hidden field that spambots are programmed to fill out, but humans won’t see it. If the field is filled out, you can be sure the submission is coming from a bot and can be discarded.
Finally, you can also use a third-party service like Akismet to filter out spam submissions. Akismet is an anti-spam plugin that uses advanced algorithms to detect and block spam messages. It’s a great way to keep your Elementor forms spam-free.
By taking these steps, you can greatly reduce the amount of spam you receive through your Elementor forms. So don’t let the spammers win – take action today and protect your forms from unwanted submissions.
