Integration of anti-spam protection into Contact Form 7

Last updated December 6th, 2023 06:31

The Contact Form 7 plugin (download here) is currently one of the most popular contact form plugins for WordPress. With such a form, you can easily allow a user of your website to send you an email message without having to log in to their email client or use their webmail to manage their mail. Unfortunately, by default, the plugin does not provide any integration of anti-spam protection. So now we explain, how integration of anti-spam protection into Contact Form 7 could be done.

As mentioned above, in the default settings, this form does not offer any protection against spam robots and can therefore be easily abused for sending spam. Subsequently, a robot can fill in the form and send thousands of email messages via the web hosting provider.

Let’s take a look together at how you can secure this plugin against being easily abused.

Since the plugin itself allows integration of the Re-Captcha anti-spam protection from Google, it is basically the easiest solution to use it. This anti-spam system effectively distinguishes whether a real user of your website filled out the contact form or a spam robot did.

Registration on

The first step you will need to take to integrate Google’s anti-spam protection is to register on the website Here, in the top panel, click on the “v3 Admin Console” button. Then, register, or use your existing Gmail account to log in. After this step, you will be able to activate anti-spam protection for your website in the console.

Once you finish the activation process, Google’s system will generate two keys for you: “Site key” and “Secret Key“. You need to copy these keys and paste them into the settings of your contact form.

In the case of the Contact Form 7 plugin, you can access this setting by clicking on the “Integration” button.
