Re: Need a captcha on signup form.

Hi @TimB342

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I am so sorry we do not currently have a CAPTCHA you can add to your sign up form. This is a request I’d be happy to track in your account and submit to the appropriate teams. While we do not have a time estimate of when it will be available, Constant Contact sign up forms will automatically add a CAPTCHA after 50 sign-ups in one day. You can also turn on the Confirmed Opt In feature in your account for a double opt in process for contacts being added on to your lists. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Constant Contact sign-up form has a built-in captcha that activates if a sign-up form receives more than 50 sign ups in a day. We are tracking feedback on having the ability to turn it on for every potential sign-up. I will make sure to note your interest in this feature within your account so our developers will see it.

Re: Need a captcha on signup form.

I too believe reCaptia should be for every sign up. I am getting bogus bot sign ups every day. The limit doesn't reach 50, but I still have to go in weekly and "weed" out bad emails from my sign ups. For almost a $100 a month I'd think Constant Contact should have a better solution for dealing with very obvious bogus email sign ups with another layer of reCaptia protection. already does.

Re: Need a captcha on signup form.

Hi @KellyK4547 

 

What sign-up form are you using? This thread is focused on our Legacy Landing Pages where the CAPTCHA option isn't a default feature, and instead only shows up after 50 signups in a 24 hour period. Have you tried using the inline or popup forms in your account? These forms have an invisible CAPTCHA option by default. We also have the option of enabling the confirmed opt-in for new sign-ups. This is a setting we suggest turning on as it makes your contact have to confirm through the confirmed opt-in email before getting added into your account.

Re: SPAM NAMES IN CONTACT FORM?

Hi @AndrewRulnick,

 

I'm sorry to hear you are receiving spam sign-ups. Are you using the Constant Contact sign-up form or a third-party integration? If it is a third-party integration it might have an option to add captcha. We are investigating spam/bot sign-ups and are working toward a resolution. I will make sure to track this in your account but any additional information you can provide as far as the number of sign-ups you are receiving and the forms they might be submitting them through would be immensely helpful to our investigation. You can forward any information, along with your username, to social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com.

Re: SPAM NAMES IN CONTACT FORM?

I seem to be getting the same thing. I put in 50 names out of 247 Constant Contact sign ups .Glad I googled it before continuing. Looks like all 247 are all spam

Re: Captcha field on Sign up Form

Hello @PeterB797,

 

I do apologize for any annoyance this has caused. Are you using the built-in Constant Contact sign-up form? The captcha is only supposed to appear if you receive more than 50 sign-ups in a day. If you are using our built-in sign-up form please email us at social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com with your username, the name of the sign-up form in your account that you're using, and a reference to this post and we can take a look.

 

If it is a third-party sign-up form we might be limited in our ability to assist and I would encourage you to reach out to the company that created the integration.
