Hi, this is David from TinyFrog here to talk about captcha spam protection on your website forms and how to protect your website against spam. Chances are that your website is going to have forms that any person can visit on the Internet and that means that spam bots can also find these forms. We have a lot of “under the hood” spam protection, including a variety of software that tests IP addresses and different verbiage inside the forms but sometimes that’s not enough. We want to make sure the front-facing forms are protected and don’t get attacked by spammers trying to break your website or send you spam through these forms.
Captcha is a great system that has been designed and maybe you’ve seen it. It’s the little funny letters and numbers that you type into a form. Now they have ones where you just click a button to prove your a human that has a mouse and not just a software program trying to break the form.
Make sure your designer and developer at TinyFrog put captcha on all of your forms that people can see, if they’re an anonymous or new visitor. On forms where people are logged into your site already, it’s not as important because you know it’s them and they are already logged in.
