Unlike other anti-spam services, Akismet does not present the visitor with captchas. Instead it scans the visitor's post, name and email address and runs hundreds of tests to determine whether it's spam or not. It's a completely automated way to protect your forms from spammers.

Currently this plugin works with:

  • Joomla User Registration
  • Joomla core Contacts component
  • Contact Enhanced Component 3.3.3+ and 2.5.24+
  • Kunena 3+
  • iFormBuilder 3.3+
  • Ajax Contact 3.3+
  • Ajax Recommend 3.3+
  • iRecommend 3.3+

We hate spam as much as you do

We all hate spam. It’s annoying. It hurts your site’s credibility. Filtering it manually is confusing and time-consuming. Time spent dealing with spam is time stolen from the business of your site.

Access to get a FREE or commercial API key from akismet.com and simply paste it back in the plugin options. Don't forget to enable the plugin and it should already start blocking undesired spam messages and posts.
