umbrella created the topic: ReCaptcha being bypassed by spammers

Spammers are bypassing the Google ReCaptcha on our sites using BreezingForms. We get multiple emails per day full of spam links and worse.

We have tried v2 checkbox, v2 invisible, v3 - nothing seems to work.

Suggestions?

Hello,

Usually, ReCaptcha should stop most spam.

You can try to implement the honeypot solution to your form crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ts/210-honeypot.html to minimize the chance of spam getting through.

Let me know whether this helped to stop the spam.

Regards,

Mihaela

Thank you, but you left out something - how do you create a "hidden field" - there is no such option under text field.

Hello,

In BreezingForms you will find a type of element named "Hidden input" so that is the type of element that you have to use in this case, not a "Textfield".

Let me know whether you have managed to do so.

Thank you, I did find it. I thought it was a type of text field.
