Preventing Spam

Forms created by WS Form are inherently less likely to be prone to spam. This is because they are generated on the fly in a website visitor’s browser when a page loads and are often not even seen by ‘spam bots’.

In addition to this feature, we offer a variety of additional spam protection measures:

Akismet and reCAPTCHA (Version 3) spam checking offer various levels of spam detection. The spam score is stored against your submissions and is represented as a colored circle on the submissions page. If you hover your mouse cursor over the colored circle, you can see the percentage score WS Form has given a submission in terms of spam scoring. The scoring ranges from 0% (not spam, shown in green) to 100% (blatant spam,  shown in red).
