Hi there, I have the Google Recaptcha V2 'i'm not a robot' box with security set to the highest setting and a hidden input honeypot as described on your website, yet we still get spam trickling through the forms; 2-5 per day.

What else can I do to stop the spam? Am I missing something?

Hi,

The second thing you can do is to validate some fields: crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...g-form-elements.html

Also, you can use Honeypot: crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...ts/210-honeypot.html

If you have more help, let me know!

Regards,
Mirko

Thanks, I do have all of the fields validated and I do use the hidden input honeypot (just 1). Have you found using a hidden text field honeypot works better? Or should you set up multiple? Honestly, when I set up the hidden input honeypot I didn't see a change in spam.

Maybe this is simply the best we can do to with spam nowadays? Do all form extensions get the same amount or is there a flaw in breezingforms?

Hi,

It is always very difficult to be totally free from spam as soon as you offer online forms.

For protection, also you can see.
You can protect every website with Spambotcheck:

try to add a honey pot as described here:

Thanks, I will checkout that plugin and add a few more honeypots, both hidden input and text fields and see if that helps.
