Add Google’s reCAPTCHA V3 to your Forms

Clients recently report higher than normal spam on their web forms.
There is a simple reason; things have changed.

Google recently introduced reCAPTCHA v3 anti spam technology.
V3 or version 3 replaces version V2 with better site wide protection.

At the same time, Contact Form 7, which is a popular forms plugin for WordPress retired it’s V2 integration, so upon their recent upgrade, forms around the globe may have suddenly started to experience higher spam solicitations and bogus form submissions.

If you are under a maintenance contract with Microlinx, then you have nothing to be concerned about. We already handled it for you. However, if you are simply a hosting client with no written and signed maintenance agreement, you will need to request the V3 upgrade which costs a one time charge of $30.  This should do away with all contact form spam and let you focus on real clients again.
