Spam can be a huge headache for all websites and recently, we’ve seen an increase in Magento 1 store owners having problems with spam messages through contact forms.
Our recommendation to reduce the flood of spam messages is to add Google Invisible reCAPTCHA to any form on the website, including contact, registration or reviews forms.
Powered by Amasty, the extension lets you protect your store from bots without having to disrupt the core code.
Google Invisible reCAPTCHA is designed to significantly reduce the amount of errant submissions you receive via forms on your website and is ideal for use across Magento 1 and Magento 2 websites.
It also adds an additional layer of security from spam messages and fraudulent activity while letting real customers pass through easily.
Potential customers do not need to crack any quizzes or check the “I’m not a robot” button like in previous versions.
If you want to implement this on your website, please contact your account manager or raise a ticket with our support staff and our development team can take care of this for you.
Before we can add the Google Invisible reCAPTCHA to your website you’ll need to register for it through the Google Admin Console here.
We’ll run through how to complete the registration in the video below.
Once you have submitted this, you will be provided with site keys. Copy and and paste those into an email and send them over to your account manager to complete the installation.
If you need any further assistance, please contact your account manager by raising a support ticket, calling the office on 01785 279920 or use the form below.
