Problems & Solutions
Many Magento 2 store owners today face problems with spambots attacks via many of their forms. Such spam attacks can increase the Magento 2 database size with fake accounts, fake entries, fake submissions.
Spammers or bots can hit your Magento 2 site from any form: contact form, product review form, customer registration form, newsletter subscription form, custom forms, third-party forms, and more.
Magento 2 by default supports ReCaptcha v2 and v3 to protect forms Customer Login, Forgot Password, Create New Customer Account, Contact Us, Product Review, Newsletter Subscription, Send To Friend and PayPal PayflowPro payment forms from spambots. However, many spammers are bypassing Google Recaptcha today, fill out and submit the forms.
As, a result, your Magento 2 database will be filled with entries from spammers, this will negatively impact your server resources, site performance, SEO, and more.
Magento 2 Spam Bot Blocker Extension can overcome this issue, by protecting any of your Magento 2 forms from spambots submission. The extension can protect your forms by honeypot feature, or by restricting individual spambots' email addresses, or wildcard emails.
Restricting form by Honeypot - the extension adds a hidden honeypot input at any of your forms, which is not visible to real users and can not disbuds real users to submit the form. However, spambots can see the hidden field as just another field in the form and hence can fill it with data and submit the form. On any form submission, the extension checks whether the honeypot field (hidden input) is filled or empty. If not filled, the form will submit, and if filled the form will be marked as spam and fails to submit.
Restricting form by Email address and domains - the extension allows you to specify a list of spambots' email addresses that will be restricted to submit specific forms at your site.
Also, the extension logs/reports all spambots blocked in the dedicated backend grid including all details for better analysis. You can choose to email the daily report of all spam blocked to store admins or specific receivers.
As result, all forms at your Magento 2 site will be protected, you will receive only entries/data from real users and your site won't be impacted negatively due to spambots entries.
Support Any Forms Types
Magento 2 Spam Bot Blocker Extension can work with any forms types. You can enable Honepot protection or emails/domains restriction to the default Magento 2 forms (eg. contact, product review, customer log-in/registration, newsletter subscription, etc.), forms from a third party, or any custom forms at your site.
Restrict Form Submission by Honeypot
Honeypot is user-friendly, real users do not see the honeypot input, and can't fill it since it's hidden, therefore real users will always submit the form. But spam bots can see and fill the hidden honeypot input, but they will fail to submit the form when honeypot hidden input is filled.
In the backend - you will need to specify the list of forms (by actions and CSS selector) to enable the honeypot feature. And, specify the message that will display in the frontend to users that are not allowed to submit the form (spambots in most of the cases).
In the storefront - the honeypot field appears in form of hidden input in the form it's enabled. And if that honeypot input is filled, the form will fail to submit.
Restrict Form Submission by Email Address & Domains
Magento 2 Spam Bot Blocker Extension allows you to block/prevent/restrict spambots' by email addresses or domains to submit your forms.
In the backend: you can specify the list of individual spambots' email addresses (eg. [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]), or wildcard prefix of email domains (eg. *@qq.com, *@123.com, *@bk.ru, *@125.com) to block/prevent/restrict from submitting the forms.
In the frontend: if an email address used during form submission appears in a list of individual spambots' email addresses to block/restrict, or matches the wildcard of spambots' email address configured in the backend, the form will fail to submit.
