  • It also manages comments submitted through the wpDiscuz plugin.
  • There is an option to set the spam retention period.

It is FREE

Free for any use, personal, commercial, and business sites with no API key required.

We are able to provide this free plugin because we have a Pro version that enables us to fund the development of this free plugin and pay for the avocado on toast that our developers insist on having for breakfast every morning.
Let’s just say it isn’t cheap to keep that lot happy! But we love ’em really, even if they do spend half the day napping and the other half moaning about how hard they’re working.
As long as the cash keeps rolling in from you top chaps who purchase the Pro version, the freebies will keep on coming and the developers will continue living the dream (or nightmare depending on who you ask!). So in summary – buy the Pro version and you’ll not only get some swanky new features but you’ll also be indirectly paying for the livelihood of a bunch of scoundrels who wouldn’t last 5 minutes in a real job. Bargain!

It Works

Check out our reviews, and you’ll find that Fullworks Anti Spam is widely recognized as an anti-spam solution that truly stops spam comments on your blog posts.

It is good for SEO

How can an anti-spam plugin improve SEO? Well they can’t but they can damage SEO by damaging performance. Other well known anti spam plugins make calls to the cloud to analyse
comments and this can slow down your site. This plugin is fast and lightweight and so by using this plugin, over some others, you can be avoiding damaging your SEO.

It is good for Security

How can spam protection improve security? The biggest threat to website or any technology security is ‘Social Engineering’ where people are tricked into revealing credentials. These attacks all start with an out of the blue contact
, maybe a phishing link or maybe something else believable, once hooked the hackers dig in. All these types of attacks start with a contact, such as a comment on a post. The majority of these attacks start with an automated (bot) campaign. This free plugin protects your blog comments from these auto campaigns.

It is easy to use

The plugin is designed to be ‘set and forget’. Once installed it will start protecting you from spam. You can review the spam comments if you wish, but you don’t have to.

It is safe

The free plugin does not send any data to any third party. It does not use cookies. It does not track users. It does not collect any personal data.

Go Pro

Our view is the free version should deal with the most prolific spam elements that come with the free blogging platform, namely comments.

And the Pro version should be affordable to the smallest of businesses and deal with the more sophisticated spam elements that plague them, namely contact forms and registration forms.
