Yesterday's release included an update to Act-On web form capabilities that secures forms from Spam Bot abuse. This is another form of protection of your forms that goes beyond the use of CAPTCHA and double opt-in flows.
We've added intelligence to the validation of Act-On submitted form data that will detect and filter activity from spam bots attacks. Filtering rules range from the format of Name related fields data, such as URLs, to IP addresses with suspicious activity. Detection intelligence will be continually updated as we observe new ways spam bots use to attack forms.
The proactive filtering of any bot submissions will protect your email list quality, sender reputation, and prevent a negative impact to your email deliverability.
Is there anything I need to do
There is no user configuration on the form required. Our software will automatically flag any questionable entries submitted from any new and existing forms.
