This tool works out of the box. I used it to replace reCaptcha, which is not working according to data protection laws in Germany. It is very easy to handle and install, you don't need to add fields etc. to your forms. The free version lets you have a look at the efficiency of the tool. Works perfectly with different forms like Elementor, Formidable etc. German version: Dieses Plugin funktioniert supereinfach. I habe es verwendet, um reCaptcha zu ersetzen, das deutschen Datenschutz-Regularien nicht entspricht. Es ist sehr einfach zu installieren, separat von den verwendeten Formularen. Es funktioniert sehr zuverlässig, mit der freien Version kann man sich einen guten Eindruck verschaffen. Es funktioniert mit einer breiten Palette von Formularen wie z.B. welche aus Elementor, Formidable Forms etc.

Our website was receiving hundreds of spam account creations. Once we installed and setup the OOPSpam Anti-Spam plugin, all spam emails, and accounts stopped immediately. Highly recommended! Gerardo Gonzalez-Quevedo Prints Giclee Shop

This is a great plugin with a very responsive and knowledgable support team. I emailed them yesterday with a kind of obscure WooCommerce feature request and they had a fix deployed within 12 hours. Yes, it's a paid service if your site has any kind of volume at all, but it's extremely effective and fully built for privacy and GDPR compliant. We're trying to de-G00glify everything for our clients so their websites are not tracking users every move and implementing this service is part of our (slow and tedious) move in that direction. Pricing is perfect for agencies as they do tiers by actual # of API calls and no limit on the number of sites you can install this on. Most competitors we were looking at had per-site license structures that were not going to work for us. Works well for default comment fields, WPForms and WooCommerce. Has some other integrations but those are the ones we tried. If you have any doubts, just go back into your logs of spam that slipped through reCAPTCHA and Akismet and a honeypot... pick a message and enter the data on the app.oopspam.com dashboard you can edit the test data right there and it will show you what spam score their system would give that message.

We love this plugin! We had been searching for a plugin to fix the BARRAGE of spam contact submissions we get every day. After trying Akismet and realizing how difficult it is to get it to work with Elementor Forms, I did some more research and came across OOPSpam. This plugin is AMAZING. It has singlehandedly stopped the annoying spam contact submissions we get

I’m surprised with this plugin, it was an incredible experience because I have ZERO SPAM after activation. If you’re looking for a quick, effective and simple way to get rid of SPAM. This is the only plugin you need! Easy to use and simple. I’ve used a few plugins to fight SPAM and this is definitely the highest quality and effectiveness. Great job!
