Spam Protection

There are a few ways to help protection your forms from form spam. Find out more below.

Creating a honeypot 🍯

The first line of defence when trying to prevent form spam from being submitted is to use a honeypot. This is basically a an additional HTML input field you add when creating your forms. It's important that you add your forms Endpoint ID as the value for the field.
<input type="text" name="_honey" value="{{YOU ENDPOINT ID}}" style="display:none" />

Using Google reCAPTCHA

You have the option to enable Google reCAPTCHA on any of your Hyperforms. This is as simple as flipping the switch in your form settings (shown below). Once enabled, when someone submits your form, they will be sent to a Hyperforms URL to pass the reCAPTCHA challenge, if they succeed the form will be submitted and they will carry on to the final destination (e.g. thank you page).

Marking submissions as Spam

When viewing your form submissions in the Hyperforms dashboard, you have the option to mark a submission as Spam as well as Trash. By marking the submissions you believe to be spam, it helps our own internal form spam protection learn what is/isn't spam and therefore helps keep the spam out of your inbox.
