    Hello Ricky,

    You will have to add captcha in your form. Here are the steps you should follow:

    1. Sign in to your JotForm account.

    2. Load your form in editor.

    3. Add "captcha" field in your form which is under the "Quick Tools" tab. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please be noted that having captcha fields in your from will be effective if there is a automated attempt to send spam. It cannot prevent, if there is a human attempt to do so.

    You can take advantage of our unique submission feature to block multiple submissions from one system of one IP address by setting the "Loose check" or "Strict Check" respectively. Here is a guide to help you set unique submission:  https://www.jotform.com/help/64-How-to-Set-Unique-Submissions-on-a-Form

    You can also use our unique question feature to prevent from submitting duplicate submissions. Example: You can set one of your forms question (like cell number or email address) to be a unique question. This will not allow a user to use the same cell number or email address to submit your form. Here is a guide to help you:  https://www.jotform.com/help/223-How-to-set-Form-Limits-Based-on-a-Unique-Question

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any question. We are happy to help.

    Thank you!
