One of the best plug-ins out there for your sites security. Eliminates the need for any reCAPTHA to prevent spam leads and form submissions. It all works in the background via A.I while you do nothing but focus on your website. Product is updated regularly and the support team is top notch as well!

This product is amazing. It basically works like magic. My site was flooded with bots, porn spam, and overall garbage leads. Installed this and it just halted all of it best of all, zero CAPTCHA nonsense that just frustrates users. Highly recommended!
