Spam can be a major problem for any type of form. To help your combat spam form entries, Gravity Forms released the reCAPTCHA add-on. With the free security service from Google, you can reduce the number of automated form submissions.

Note that the add-on requires Gravity Forms 2.5, free reCAPTCHA v3 keys, and either a Gravity Forms Basic, Pro, or Elite license.

Akismet Add-On

This new add-on further integrates Akismet with Gravity Forms providing more reliable spam filtering results. It allows you to map your form fields to ensure the correct field data is sent to Akismet. This helps train Akismet to identify and filter out form entries that are in fact spam.

In addition, Akismet is notified when an entry is marked as spam or non-spam. This then helps to train its filter. The add-on is also available on all licenses.
