About Spam Shield for WordPress
Spam Shield for WordPress is an easy way to block contact form spam and comment-spam. Works with:
- Contact Form 7
- WP Forms (free and pro)
- kadence blocks
- WordPress comments
The Spam Shield database is always growing and adapting to new forms of nuisance spam, and you can use the back-end REST API in your own projects, too.
Get rid of reCaptcha
The thing about adding a reCaptcha to your contact forms is that you never know if it’s actually blocking legitimate messages by mistake. With Spam Shield, you can see the last few days worth of messages that have been blocked so you can keep an eye on things… safe in the knowledge that you’re not missing out potential customers.
- Free for small sites
- Affordable for bigger sites
- White-label for agencies
We’ve been running Spam Shield on all our clients’ WordPress sites (at Headwall Hosting) since June 2022 and it’s been great. Clients especially like seeing recently rejected contact requests in their dashboard (like a Junk folder). It gives them peace of mind they’re not missing out on legitimate enquiries.
Note: Spam Shield was developed in partnership with Power Plugins and Headwall Hosting, so this might be a bit biased 🙂
We have been running Spam Shield on our website for a few months now. It is good to be able to see the messages that have been rejected on the dashboard of our site – it gives me peace of mind that no genuine messages are being held up. It has reduced the amount of spam emails that get through to our email account and that reduces my workload.
