Hi,

I'm receiving spam emails through my Breezing forms contact form, even though reCaptcha is set up.

Hey,

the tool used for this, the one starting with X (so I don't write it here), is a tool used to "break" reCaptcha. We've had reports like this before, but there is nothing we at Crosstec can do about it. Google reCaptcha is a 3rd party software over which we have absolutely no control.

You could consider implementing a honeypot solution to see if that will stop it. Please take a look at this topic: crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ts/210-honeypot.html
Basically, what honeypots do, is that you create a hidden input that's empty and bots try to fill out all fields including this one. So, a simple check is done to see if the field is filled and if yes, prevent submitting.

Regards,
Darko
