At PlanSo Forms we don’t like spam. But we don’t like captchas either. If you’ve read our one of our last blog-post, Why PlanSo Forms doesn’t support CAPTCHAs – and you better don’t deploy them, you know why. To better protect the thousands of websites using PlanSo Form we’ve taken a step towards improving Spam-protection even further. We’ve contacted Mihai of Goodbye Captcha to discuss the possibilities of joining forces to fight spam. And today we’re happy to let you know about the brand new integration of PlanSo Forms in the powerful anti-spam plugin Goodbye Captcha.
About intelligent spam-protection
Goodbye Captcha completely eliminates spam-bot signups or spam comments on your WordPress site. It works with any form built by PlanSo e.g. Login, Registration, PayPal and of course any regular forms as well. It’s a reliable plugin which was first released in September 2014 and downloaded over 18.000 times by now. As we’ve know for long Captchas have a negative impact on user experience. Both Goodbye Captcha and PlanSo Forms address this issue via an invisible spam-protection. Together your WordPress site stays spam free because Spam bots are immediately identified by an algorithm which in turn makes your site faster and more secure.
