Hello there,

I will also recommend you implement a captcha on the contact page. This is the best thing you can do in order to prevent the SPAM from the contact page.

You can use Google reCAPTCHA or any other captcha plugin (in case you use WordPress or other CMS)

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

yah you can add the reCaptcha from Google dude… some plugins for WP already have the available option

or you can use like a normal captcha question like “what is 3+4?”
