For the last 3 days I'm having about 20 new subscribers per hour, all coming from some kind of robot, names are something like 5909f4d180047. I use a double-opt-in list so they're unconfirmed and the only problem is that it's cluttering my subscribers' database.
Is there an easy way to avoid this? I'm using the list's subscribing form, could I add a "tick if you're human" ticking box or something similar to it?
Many thanks in advance
You can certainly build your own custom subscription form with Sendy’s API (https://sendy.co/api) add a ‘CAPTCHA' to alleviate this.
Thank you for your message, after trying few different things I've managed to sort it out using this link you recommended on another post in the forum: http://www.nfriedly.com/techblog/2009/11/how-to-build-a-spam-free-contact-forms-without-captchas/
I changed the subscribe.php file with Vith's suggestion on this post: https://sendy.co/forum/discussion/161/lots-of-spam-signups-on-double-opt-in-list/p1
I can't understand why this isn't implemented by default, but I'm glad I got it sorted.
Thanks again for your reply.
