My clients shop is getting hundreds of "spam" newsletter opt-ins and password reset requests every day.
I tried implementing google recaptcha to the forms, but without success. I am also not sure if those forms are already protected by google recaptcha, as the box under spam protection is ticked.
Anyone got any tips how to handle this? Any scripts I can implement?
are you using the native email newsletter or a 3rd party provider like MailChimp?
You could use Shop Protector app for this.
There are 2 products, broken up by plan type, for SP (Shop Protector). SP Basic focuses on form spam and fake account creation.
SP+ has this functionality too but adds the ability to configure rules to protect against bot-based checkouts, customize risk analysis settings, how to handle auto-cancellation, bulk cancellations, and much more coming soon!
