    How to stop spam submissions?

    Asked by amccausland on June 16, 2015 at 01:08 AM
    But we are having some issues with spam on our current form as we can't do any server side validation, so wondering if we bring it into Jotform if it will help our spam problem.

    To prevent spam, you can add a captcha field to your forms - this will require manual validation by a real person, and prevent automated bots from submitting your form.

    Alternatively, you can also try adding form submission limits, to prevent multiple submissions from the same IP address, or to prevent multiple entries that have a certain field filled in the same way (a Unique Question).

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.
