How does Spam Protection help?

One Click Re-Captcha

With our one-click ReCaptcha feature, prevent spam in under minutes. Send user to a clean page on Formester where they are verified as humans

Custom Re-Captcha

Keep user on the same page and increase the chance of the conversion. Our philosophy has always been to keep things simple but give enough control for those who need it.

Smart Filters

Our database is getting smarter each day. We use machine learning to predict spam submissions. Your every form will improve our prediction.

IP/User-Agent Monitoring

One of the most common kinds of malicious activity involves multiple submissions from a single source over a given period. At Formester, you get to track, monitor and update your web form settings to restrict such IPs and reduce spam occurrences.

Honeypot Integration

Honeypot acts as a trap to snare bots and spammers. It works by using a field that remains hidden from humans but visible to such annoyances. Web Forms at Formester can be set-up to be easily configured with Honeypot; ensuring security and convenience at one go!

Cloudflare Turnstile Integration

Cloudflare's popular Turnstile allows for sending traffic through Cloudflare and operates, keeping the visitors free of the hassle and frustration that comes with the need for solving over-the-top CAPTCHA, using just a simple snippet of absolutely free code. At Formester, we use this integration to provide visitors with an abuse-free experience whilst eliminating data privacy concerns for confirming real visitors and providing seamless UX for the users.
