Comment Honeypot

Prevent spam comments on your WordPress website.

Millions of WordPress websites have the same HTML output for comment forms making them easier for bots to target, find and post spam comments. Many popular plugins to prevent spam make the real user experience worse, add heavy loads or simply don't work as they should.

Comment Honeypot takes a unique approach to spam prevention


When a user or visitor writes a comment a special key is inserted into the WordPress comment form using JavaScript. Comment spambots don't obey JavaScript like a normal visitor's browser thereby allowing the plugin to identify them. All of this will happen in the background and will not be visible to visitors which helps eliminate the need for obnoxious captchas or other things that degrade the user experience.

There are no settings to adjust. Just activate the plugin and you're done!
