CleanTalk – Cloud-Based Anti-Spam Service to Keep Your Site Bot-Free.
NewsWatch Review.

Using CleanTalk on WPLift was a great test as we receive huge amounts of spam.
Oliver Dale, WPLift.com.

I know you have heard of a number of anti-spam plugins. But you must know, the cloud-based ones are the best regarding detection rate. They compare all the content in forms with their own algorithm to find out the legibility.
www.techwibe.com

Das wichtigste Verkaufsargument von CleanTalk ist für mich nicht nur die Wirksamkeit. Es ist die Tatsache, dass CleanTalk im Hintergrund arbeitet. Benutzer müssen sich kein Bein ausreißen, um einen Kommentar abzugeben oder ein Formular auszufüllen. www.kevinmuldoon.com

How CleanTalk improves SEO for your website?

So, you already know that the speed of the site has a direct impact on SEO.

CleanTalk works faster than most of the other anti-spam plugins. It is common knowledge that the faster your site loads, the better your customer experience is, the better your SEO will be, and the better your site will convert. Speed is becoming increasingly important in SEO, conversion and user experience. Today, site speed is one of the most important ranking factors on Google. A site that loads slowly will lose visitors and potential revenue.

There are different ways of improving your site’s loading performance. One important parameter for site performance is to install well-developed plugins from a reputable source.

Among anti-spam plugins CleanTalk AntiSpam is one of the fastest. Despite the
large plugin functionality, the developers have optimized the performance of
the plugin so that AntiSpam by CleanTalk is faster than most analogs. This contributes to the cloud service architecture, as all calculations take place in the cloud, not on the server, the server receives the finished result for further action.

https://s.w.org/plugins/cleantalk-spam-protect/screenshot-5.png?r=1288723

How CleanTalk works?

  • A visitor writes a comment or registers
  • Anti-Spam by CleanTalk plugin sends action parameters into the CleanTalk cloud
  • Service analyzes the parameters
  • If this is a visitor, the comment will be published. If it’s a spam bot, then CleanTalk blocks this comment or registration.
  • Parameters are written to the spam log which can be viewed in the Control Panel service.

CleanTalk team has been developing a cloud antispam system for five years and has created a truly reliable anti-spam service designed for you to guarantee
your safety.

Spam attacks log

Service CleanTalk (this plugin is a client application for CleanTalk anti-spam service) records all filtered comments, registration and other spam attacks in the „Log of spam attacks“ and stores the data in the log for up to 45 days. Using the log, you can ensure reliable protection of your website from spam and no false/positive filtering.

Spam FireWall

CleanTalk has an advanced option „Spam FireWall“. Spam FireWall allows blocking the most active spam bots before they get access to your website. It prevents spam bots from loading website pages so your web server doesn’t have to perform all scripts on these pages. Also it prevents scanning of pages of the website by spam bots. Therefore Spam FireWall significantly reduces the load on your web server. Spam FireWall also makes CleanTalk the two-step protection from spam bots. Spam FireWall is the first step and it blocks the most active spam bots. CleanTalk Anti-Spam is the second step and checks all other requests on the website in the moment of submitting comments/registers etc.

Spam FireWall ist voll kompatibel mit den beliebtesten VPN-Diensten.
Außerdem unterstützt Spam FireWall alle gängigen Suchmaschinen wie Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, MSN, Yandex usw.

How Spam FireWall works?

  • The visitor enters to your web site.
  • HTTP request data are being checked in the nearly 5.8 million of the identified spam bot IPs.
  • If it is an active spam bot, the bot gets a blank page, if it is a visitor then he receives a normal page. This process is completely transparent for the visitors.

All the CleanTalk Spam FireWall activity is being logged in the process of filtering.

Spam FireWall DDoS Protection

Spam FireWall kann HTTP/HTTPS DDoS-Angriffe abschwächen. Wenn ein Angreifer GET-Anfragen sendet, um deine Website anzugreifen, blockiert Spam FireWall alle Anfragen von bösartigen IP-Adressen. Deine Website leitet den Angreifer eine spezielle Seite mit der Beschreibung der DDoS-Blockade statt auf deine Webseiten. Damit hilft Spam FireWall, die CPU-Last deines Servers zu reduzieren.

Spam FireWall: Anti-Flood & Anti-Crawler

Spam FireWall: Anti-Flood and Anti-Crawler options are intended for blocking unwanted bots, content parsing, shop goods prices parsing or aggressive website scanning bots. Learn more https://cleantalk.org/help/anti-flood-and-anti-crawler

XML-RPC brute force protection

Spam FireWall can mitigate XML-RPC brute force attacks. It blocks XML-RPC attacks from bad IP addresses. This helps to prevent bruteforce attacks by a Remote Procedure Call.

How to protect sites from spam bots without CAPTCHA?

The most popular anti spam method is CAPTCHA – the annoying picture with curved and sloping symbols, which are presented to the visitor to decipher and fill in. In is supposed that spam bots won’t discern these CAPTCHA, but a visitor will. CAPTCHA provokes great irritation, but if the visitor wants to comment, he has to fill in these symbols time after time, making mistakes and starting once again. Sometimes CAPTCHA reminds us of the doodles of a two year old child. For users with vision problems CAPTCHA is an insurmountable obstacle. Users hate captcha. Captcha for users means „hate“. Unreadable CAPTCHA stops about 80% of site visitors. After 2 failed attempts to decipher CAPTCHA 95% of visitors reject further attempts. At the sight of CAPTCHA and after input errors, many visitors leave the resource. Thus, CAPTCHA helps to protect the resource spam both from bots and visitors. CAPTCHA is not a panacea from spam. Doubts concerning the Need for CAPTCHA?

„Ultimately, CAPTCHAs are useless for spam because they’re designed to tell you if someone is ‚human‘ or not, but not whether something is spam or not.“ Matt Mullenweg

You do not have to work in IT to know what spam is. Besides piles of unwanted email, there are spam bots, or special software programs designed to act as human website visitors that post unwelcome messages over the Internet to advertise dubious services. More often than not spam messages do not even make sense. Similar to bacteria and virus mutations developing antibiotic resistance, spam bots are becoming more resilient in penetrating Internet firewalls and security layers.

CleanTalk’s features

Anti-Spam by CleanTalk with Spam FireWall is one of the fastest plugins that allows you to lower the server load. One of the important parameters for each webmaster is the speed of the site, so we make sure that our plugin consumes as few server resources as possible. The Cloud Service provides the advantage: all data processing takes place in the Cloud.

CleanTalk team has developed unique anti spam algorithms to assess visitors behavior. CleanTalk analyzes user behavior and the parameters of the filled forms. Our anti-spam module, being installed in your website, sends the behavior parameters of either a visitor or a spam bot. When these parameters are estimated, the anti spam service makes a decision – to post a message or to define it as spam and reject it. Based on these checks, the service forms its own list of email addresses used by spam bots.

The registrations of visitors are being checked in a similar manner. The service adds to the blacklist not just email addresses, but also IP addresses and domains of websites that promote themselves through spam mailing. All of this happens automatically and requires no action from the administration of the website. In 2.5 million queries the service makes a mistake in 40-45 cases, i.e. CleanTalk detects spam with 99.9982% accuracy. We constantly monitor these errors and make adjustments to our algorithms. Even with this exceptional accuracy our team is aiming to improve the figures over time.

All-in-one. CleanTalk protects form spam all forms instantaneously – comments, registrations, feedback, contacts. No need to install additional plugins for each form. You save resources and increase performance of your website.

Spam attacks log. Anti-Spam by CleanTalk records all filtered comments, registrations and other spam attacks in the „Log of spam attacks“ and stores the data in the log for up to 45 days. Using the log, you can ensure reliable protection of your website from spam and experience no false/positive filtering.

With the help of anti-spam by CleanTalk you can check existing comments and users, to find and quickly delete spam comments at once. This allows administrators of websites to automatically check and identify spam bots, comments and users, which were not detected by conventional anti-spam tools. The existing comments and users checking process is performed in a database of the nearly 2 million identified spam bots. Detailed spam stats allows CleanTalk customers to fully control it.

CleanTalk has an advanced option „Spam FireWall“. This option allows you to block the most active spam bots before they get access to your website. It unloads you website pages when an attempt attack was made, so your web server won’t run unnecessary scripts on these pages. Also it prevents any scanning of website pages by spam bots. Subsequently Spam FireWall significantly reduces your webserver load. Spam FireWall can mitigate HTTP/HTTPS DDoS attacks. When an intruder makes GET requests to attack your website, Spam FireWall will block requests from bad IP addresses. Your website gives the intruder a special page with a description of DDoS rejection instead of the website pages. Spam FireWall can help to reduce the CPU usage of your server because of this reason.

„CleanTalk team has been developing a cloud spam protection system for five years and has created a truly reliable anti-spam service designed for you to guarantee your safety“.

Real-time email validation. Is email real or Not.

Nicht vorhandene E-Mail-Adressen ziehen für Website-Betreiber eine Reihe weiterer Probleme nach sich.

  • Du kannst sie nie per E-Mail kontaktieren,
  • Der Kunde erhält niemals Benachrichtigungen von dir (Kontobestätigung, Kennwortwiederherstellung, E-Mail-Verteiler, Benachrichtigungen usw.).
  • Wenn Sie E-Mail-Marketing für Ihre Kunden betreiben, kann eine große Anzahl nicht vorhandener Adressen im Verteiler dazu führen, dass Ihre IP-Adresse bei allerlei Empfänger-Servern auf der Blacklist landet..

Video guide – Anti-Spam Plugin Installation in WordPress.

Important! To test spam protection you must post a dummy submissions as website visitor (use must logged out from WordPress console), because the plugin doesn’t filter submissions from WordPress administrators.

How can setup plugin in WPMU version?

In WordPress multisite version you can switch the plugin to use Global Access key. In this way the plugin doesn’t show any options to enter Access key in plugin settings and doesn’t show Trial banner in WordPress backend. To setup global CleanTalk access key for all websites in WPMS, define constant in your wp-config.php file before defining database constants:

define('CLEANTALK_ACCESS_KEY', 'place your key here');

Make it before you activated the plugin. If the plugin already activated, deactivate it and add the code and active it again.
Now, all subsites will have this access key.

Manage and control spam protection

Go to Dashboard at the cleantalk.org or use Android, iPhone anti-spam app to manage and control spam protection.

FAQ

Warum werde ich zugespammt?

Spammers want to get backlinks from your site to improve their site’s PageRank or redirect your visitors to malicious sites.This level of spam can damage your reputation with readers and commentators if you fail to tackle it. It is not uncommon for some WordPress websites to receive hundreds or even thousands of comments every week. However, by using a CleanTalk plugin, spam can be easily handled by your WordPress website.

Is the anti-spam protection safe for mobile visitors?

Yes, it is. The plugin doesn’t block mobile visitors as well as desktop website visitors. It uses several independent anti-spam tests to decrease the number of false outcomes and to have as low false-positive rate as possible. Multiple anti-spam tests help to avoid false/positive blocks for real website visitors even if one of the tests failed.

What does the plugin do with spam comments?

Spam comments are being moved to SPAM folder by default or you can set the option to ban spam comments silently.

Wie kann ich den Anti-Spam Schutz testen?

Please use the email stop_email@example.com for comments, contacts or signups to see how the anti-spam protection works. Also you can see the logs for the last 7 days at the Control panel or look at the folder „Spam“ for banned comments.

Ist das Plugin effektiv gegen Spam-Bots?

The plugin Anti-Spam by CleanTalk stops up to 99.998% of spam comments, spam signups (registrations), spam contact emails, spam subscriptions, spam bookings or spam orders.

Does the plugin protect from brute force, DoS attacks and spam attacks?

Yes, it does. Please turn the option ‚Spam FireWall‘ on in the plugin settings to protect your website from DoS/DDoS, XML-RPC attacks.

Wie stoppt das Plugin Spam?

Bitte beachten: Aktionen des Administrators werden NICHT geprüft.

The plugin uses several simple tests to stop spammers:

  1. JavaScript anti-spam test. 99% of spam bots don’t have full JavaScript functions support. So, the plugin has the code which can be run by normal visitor and can’t be run by the spam bot.
  2. Email, IP, domain spam activity list entries check. The plugin uses spam activity database online at cleantalk.org, consisting of more than 20 billion spam activity records of IPs, Emails, Domains and ASN. If the sender’s IP or Email is in the database, the sender gets some spam scores. To reduce false/positive rate the plugin not only uses the blacklist test to ban spammers, the sender will be banned when and only when multiple spam tests have been failed.
  3. Comment submit time. Spam bots usually submit the info immediately after the page has been loaded, this happens because spam bots don’t actually fill the web form, they just send $_POST data to the blog. The normal visitor sends the data after several seconds or minutes.

Schützt das Anti-Spam-Plugin mein Theme?

Yes, it will. The Anti-spam by CleanTalk is compatible with any WordPress theme.

What about pingback, trackback spam?

The plugin passes pingbacks without any checks by default. All trackbacks will be blocked if the sender had spam activity.

Kann ich CleanTalk mit Akismet nutzen?

Sure, you can use CleanTalk with Akismet. In this case you will probably have higher false/positive rate (when legitimate comments/signups are being denied), but you will have stronger anti-spam protection on your website.

Ist CleanTalk besser als Akismet?

Please look at this features comparison here https://cleantalk.org/cleantalk-vs-akismet

Can I use CleanTalk to remove pending spam comments?

Yes, you can. The plugin has the option to test all pending comments via database of spam active IP/Email, found spam comments will be moved to Trash folder.

How does the plugin find spam in pending comments or registered accounts?

The plugin checks all non-spam comments in the blacklist database and shows you those senders who have spam activity on other websites.
There are some differences between blacklist database and API to protect you from spam bot registrations/comments online. Blacklists show all history of spam activity, but our API (which is used in spam tests) relies on other parameters too: last day of activity, number of spam attacks during the last days etc. These mechanisms help us to reduce the number of false outcomes. So, there is nothing strange, if some emails/IPs are not found by bulk comments/accounts test.

To check comments please go here:

WordPress console -> Comments -> Find spam comments

To check users please go here:

WordPress console -> Users -> Find spam users

Should I use other anti-spam tools (Captcha, reCaptcha and etc.)?

CleanTalk stops up to 99.998% of spam bots, so you can disable other anti-spam plugins (especially CAPTCHA-type anti-spam plugins). In some cases several anti-spam plugins could conflict with each other, so it would be better to use just one plugin.

Is the plugin compatible with WordPress MultiUser (WPMU or WordPress network)?

Yes, the plugin is compatible with WordPress MultiUser. Each blog in multisite environment has individual anti-spam options for the protection from spam bots.

After the installation I noticed that the number of spam attacks has been increased in the stats

There are a few reasons for this:

  • With the indexing of your web-site by the search systems, appearance of external links and better search results position, your web-site attracts more and more spambots.
  • Non-transparent protection systems like CAPTCHA or question/answer, that don’t have spam attacks stats, don’t let you see the whole picture, or the picture is incomplete.
  • Counting methods for spam attacks and spam bots are different for different systems, thus the diversity appears. We seek to provide detailed stats.

Why my dummy „spam“ comment passed to the WordPress?

The plugin has several options to detect spam bots and humans. If you just post spammy text like this:

"I want to sell something", "Buy something here.." and etc

the comments will be passed, because the plugin detects sender as a human. So, use special email stop_email@example.com to test the anti-spam functionality or wait a few days to see how the plugin works.

Is it free or paid?

Das Plugin ist kostenlos und wird angeboten unter der GPLv2 Lizenz.

Das CleanTalk Anti-Spam Plugin ist kostenlos, das jedoch mit einem kostenpflichtigen Dienst arbeitet (Cloud-basiert – Software as a service (SaaS), siehe auch https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_as_a_Service)

Die Tatsache, dass das Plugin einen Premium-Service bietet, wird in der Beschreibung im WordPress Plugin Verzeichnis erwähnt.

Wir helfen gerne, wenn Sie irgendein Problem mit CleanTalk haben. Es gibt hunderte verschiedene Kombinationen von verschiedenen Plugins und anderen Faktoren, und wir bemühen uns, alle kompatibel zu machen.

Can I use CleanTalk with cache plugins?

Anti-spam by CleanTalk doesn’t use static HTML code in its templates, so all anti-spam functions work correctly with any WordPress cache plugins.

Does the plugin protect from spam bots if I use forms with third-party services?

Yes, it does. Plugin protects web-forms on your websites which send data to third-party servers (like MailChimp). To enable this protection set the option ‚Protect external forms‘ in the plugin settings.

Ist CleanTalk mit Cloudflare kompatibel?

CleanTalk is fully compatible with CloudFlare. Service doesn’t filter CloudFlares IP’s (AS13335) through blacklists database, so in this case plugin/service filters spam bots using other anti-spam tests.

Ist CleanTalk mit Content Delivery Networks (CDN) kompatibel?

Yes, it is. CleanTalk works with any CDN system, i.e. CloudFlare, MaxCDN, Akamai.

Can I use CleanTalk functionality in my plugins?

Yes, you can. Just use following snippet:

<?php
if(!function_exists('ct_test_message')){
    include_once( ABSPATH . '/wp-content/plugins/cleantalk-spam-protect/cleantalk.php' );
}
//for registration test:
$res=ct_test_registration("nickname", "stop_email@example.com", "127.0.0.1");
//or for some other messages (contact forms, comments etc.)
$res=ct_test_message("nickname", "stop_email@example.com", "127.0.0.1", "test message");

$res now contents array with two parameters:

I see two loads of script cleantalk_nocache.js. Why do you use it twice?

This script is used for AJAX JavaScript checking. Different themes use different mechanisms of loading, so we use two methods for loading our script. If you absolutely know what you are doing, you can switch one of the methods off by defining constants in your wp-config.php file:

define('CLEANTALK_AJAX_USE_BUFFER', false); //false - don't use output buffering to include AJAX script, true - use it

oder

define('CLEANTALK_AJAX_USE_FOOTER_HEADER', false); //false - don't use wp_footer() and wp_header() for including AJAX script, true - use it

Can I add exclusions for some pages of my site?

Yes, you can. There is a special setting in plugin settings.
You could use this guide to learn more: https://cleantalk.org/help/exclusion-from-anti-spam-checking#wordpress

Can I not send my personal data to CleanTalk servers?

Ja, Sie können Ihre Daten ausschließen. Dafür gibt es eine spezielle Einstellung bei den Plugin Einstellungen. Sie können diesen Hinweis nutzen, um mehr zu erfahren: https://cleantalk.org/help/exclusion-from-anti-spam-checking#WordPress_field_exclusions

How to test Spam FireWall?

Use special IP 10.10.10.10 in URL to test Spam FireWall. For example,

https://cleantalk.org/blog/?sfw_test_ip=10.10.10.10

Achtung! Dein Browser sollte beim Testen im Inkognito-Modus laufen. Um den Inkognito-Modus zu aktivieren, drücke Ctrl+Shift+N für Chrome, Opera und Safari; drücke Ctrl+Shift+P für Firefox, Internet Explorer und Microsoft Edge. Eine vollständige Anleitung, zum Aktivieren des Inkognito-Modus findest du hier (auf Englisch): https://www.wikihow.com/Activate-Incognito-Mode

How can I enter access key in WPMU version?

To set up global CleanTalk access key for all websites in WPMU, define constant in your wp-config.php file before defining database constants:

define('CLEANTALK_ACCESS_KEY', 'place your key here');

Now, all subsites will have this access key.

Warum arbeitet CleanTalk schneller und zuverlässinger als Stand-alone-Lösungen?

All anti-spam checks are held in the cloud and don’t overload the web server. The cloud solutions have a huge advantage since the parameters are being compared with information from more than 100,000 websites.

I see a lot of blocked messages with the reason „Forbidden. Please enable JavaScript. Spam sender name.“ in my logs

A lot of spam bots can’t perform JavaScript code, so it is one of the important checks and most of the spam bots will be blocked with the reason „Forbidden. Please enable JavaScript. Spam sender name.“ All browsers can perform JS code, so real visitors won’t be blocked.

If you or some of your visitors have the error „Forbidden. Enable JavaScript.“ please check JavaScript support in your browser and do this JavaScript test at this page: https://cleantalk.org/checkout-javascript-support.

If you think that there is something wrong in the messages blocking, let us know about it. Please submit a support request here: https://cleantalk.org/my/support.

Does the plugin work with Varnish?

CleanTalk works with Varnish, it protects WordPress against spam, but by default the plugin generates a few cookies for the protection from spam bots and it also disables Varnish cache on pages where CleanTalk’s cookies have been stored. To get rid of the issue with cache turn off the option ‚Set cookies‘ in the plugin settings.

WordPress console -> Settings -> CleanTalk -> Advanced settings

Now the plugin will protect WordPress comments, registrations and most of popular contact forms, but will not protect some of rarely used contact forms.

Does the anti-spam plugin work with Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)?

Yes, it does. But you have to turn off the option ‚Use AJAX for JavaScript check‘ in Advanced settigns of the plugin to be fully compatible with Accelerated Mobile Pages.

How to close renewal or trial notice in the WordPress backend?

To close the notice please save the plugin settings again or it will be closed automatically within 60 minutes after the renewal.

I’m using PHP 4.2 version and i’m getting errors related with JSON. Why does it happens?

СleanTalk is no longer supports PHP lower than 5.2 version because the support code have incompatibility with PHP 7 version. Please, upgrade your PHP. If you couldn’t perform that, let us know about it via support ticket here: https://cleantalk.org/my/support.

Should I change anything in the plugin’s settings or in my CleanTalk Control Panel when I switch my website from HTTP to HTTPS or vice versa?

No. You don’t need to change anything in the plugin’s settings or in your CleanTalk Control Panel. The plugin will work regardless of the protocol.

How to use Anti-Spam Log?

The following possibilities are available for you in the Anti-Spam Log:

  • Time period for all spam records you want to see.

  • Filter spam records by their status: Any status, Denied, Approved.

  • Filter spam records by your websites.

  • Filter spam records by country they came from.

  • Filter spam records by IP address, e-mail address or username.

  • Optionen für einen bestimmten Datensatz:

    • Näheres sieht unter Punkt 4 weiter unten.
    • Spam/Not Spam – press this string if our system made wrong decision and blocked or approved a registration, a comment ot a contact form submission. More about it here: https://cleantalk.org/faq#feedback_spam

Management von Spam.

By default, all spam comments are placed in the spam folder, now you can change the way the plugin deals with spam comments:

  1. Move to the Spam folder. All spam comments will be placed to the folder „Spam“ in the WordPress Comments section except comments with Stop-Words. Stop-Word comments will be always stored in the „Pending“ folder.

Damit dein Spam-Ordner nicht überquillt, kannst du ihn über den Schalter „Spam-Kommentare 15 Tage lang aufbewahren“ automatisch bereinigen. Schalte diese Option in den Plugin-Einstellungen unter Dashboard > Einstellungen > Antispam von CleanTalk > Weitere Einstellungen ein.

  1. In den Papierkorb verschieben. Alle Spam-Kommentare werden in den Papierkorb der WordPress-Kommentaren gelegt, ausgenommen Kommentare mit Stop-Wörtern. Kommentare mit Stop-Wörtern werden im Ordner „Ausstehend“ gespeichert.

  2. Verbanne Kommentare ohne Umweg über das WordPress-Backend. Alle Spam-Kommentare werden dauerhaft gelöscht, ohne dass man das WordPress Backend aufrufen muss, ausgenommen Kommentare mit Stop-Wörtern. Stop-Wörter werden stets im Ordner „Ausstehend“ gespeichert.

Welche Kommentare geblockt oder gebannt wurden, ist aus dem Anti-Spam Log zu ersehen: https://cleantalk.org/my/show_requests?int=week

Um die Handhabung von Spam zu steuern, gehe zum Kontrollpanel, wähle die Webseite, für die du Änderungen vornehmen willst, und gehe zu „Einstellungen“ unter dem Namen der Webseite.

Melde dich dazu im Kontrollpanel an: https://cleantalk.org/my.
Klicke auf „Log“ unter dem Namen Deiner Webseite.
Wenn du einen Eintrag als „Spam“ markierst, werden E-Mail- und IP-Adresse auf die schwarze Liste deiner Webseite gesetzt.

Ist das Plugin schnell?

Wir bemühen uns um die bestmögliche Programmierung unseres Plugins. CleanTalk verlangsamt die Frontseite nicht. Das Plugin verarbeitet nur POST-Anfragen an den WordPress-Kern. Es benötigt weniger als seine Sekunde für die Überprüfung.

Ist das Plugin kompatibel mit der neuen DSGVO?

Ja, ist es. Bitte lies diesen Artikel:https://cleantalk.org/publicoffer#cleantalk_gdpr_compliance

Externe Formulare prüfen

Wenn Ihre Website über Formulare verfügt, die Daten an externe Quellen senden, können Sie die Option „Externe Formulare schützen“ aktivieren. Wenn das Plugin dann feststellt, dass die aktuelle Nachricht Spam ist, wird Ihre Formularaktion vorübergehend durch Ihren aktuellen Hostnamen ersetzt. Das soll verhindern, dass falsche Daten an eine externe Quelle gesendet werden.

Rezensionen

17. September 2020
I was getting tons of spam registrations for an eBook on my website. A web design pro suggested CleanTalk. Almost immediately after installing the plugin ALL of the spam email requests have stopped. CleanTalk simply works.
