What’s more annoying—getting a bunch of spam entries or trying to figure out what numbers and letters are hidden among a bunch of squiggly lines? We’re not sure, but Cognito Forms keeps you from having to deal with either one.

Smart Captcha

Our forms use what’s known as a “smart” captcha. We have rules in place that automatically detect spam bots based on how the form is used. As long as your customers are humans, the captcha won’t appear and frustrate your users, and you’ll block any nasty spam entries.
