With Wufoo being so flexible, a good amount of power and customization to collect any sort of data is granted. As a Wufoo user it is recommended to understand your data, and use best practices when viewing and accessing it. This way, you can ensure that the data submitted into your account is kept secure, and that you maintain the level of trust needed with the people filling out your forms. With that in mind, please look over the following guidelines.
Wufoo leverages the expertise and top notch hardware found at SurveyMonkey, our parent company, to ensure that the integrity of your data is kept intact.
Nobody loves spam, so Wufoo does its part to try and prevent it before it reaches your account.
We automatically enable Captcha on the backend if spam or bot activity is detected. This helps to block activity that's consistent with a significant bot attack.
Even though we have made a mass attack on all accounts difficult, and even a single attack on a specific, targeted form challenging, some spam may still get through. In this case, consider options to limiting entries to one per IP or changing the Field Settings on the Email field to No Duplicates depending on how the entries are being submitted. Additionally, if you delete the spam entries yourself within 24 hours, they will not count against your monthly totals.
