About the Extension

Form Bot Blocker is a multifunctional solution to protect forms from bots and spam.

CAPTCHA can be quite annoying for humans, but it is effective against bots. Form Bot Blocker makes it possible to reduce the use of CAPTCHA, so that no CAPTCHA is displayed for most users.

Alternative protection measures ensure that your forms remain well protected even without a CAPTCHA. CAPTCHA can be completely deactivated if required.

All bot blocks can be recorded. This allows you to track bot activity in the log at any time.

You can also blacklist IP addresses. This blocks Shopware forms for these IP addresses.

GDPR

You decide for yourself whether you configure the plugin to be GDPR-compliant or not.

GDPR compliant configurations

Form Bot Blocker generally does not communicate with external services. Personal data such as IP addresses are stored encrypted by default. They are regularly deleted by the plugin. Basically, you are observing the GDPR regulations if you do not activate storage of IP addresses in plain text.

Non-GDPR compliant configurations

You can enable storage of IP addresses in plain text. This can help technical staff take action against particularly persistent bots and users with suspicious activity. In general, storing IP addresses in plain text is not GDPR-compliant. Please consult a GDPR specialist on this topic.

  • Contact form
  • Newsletter form

Notice

Essentially, the plugin offers a three-tiered protection:

Level 1 (Plugin Protection Mechanisms)

Most bots and spammers should be automatically detected and blocked by bot detectors.

( You can freely activate all or individual plugin protection mechanisms. )

Level 2 (CAPTCHA Rules)

However, quite sophisticated bots exist that cannot be distinguished by humans. CAPTCHA rules help here, which activate Shopware CAPTCHA after multiple submissions of the form.

( Some spam messages may get through before the form submissions limit is reached. )

Level 3 (IP Address Blocking)

IP address blocking has been integrated into the plugin for the worst bots that can even bypass CAPTCHAs. This allows you to manually block IP addresses for a selected period of time.

( Note that IP addresses on the Internet are often assigned dynamically. )

To note

Not original newsletter forms

Some shops do not use the original newsletter form, which is often located in the footer of the shop and only requires an email entry. These newsletter forms often use the same interface as the Shopware newsletter form. Please check whether these are working properly. If this is not the case, deactivate Newsletter in the Form Bot Blocker.

Aufgrund der vielen Hackerangriffe ist das ein Must Have Plugin. Einfach in der Anwendung, nur in der Auflistung, würde ich die Spalte "IP Identifikator" nach hinten verlegen, damit man einen besseren Überblick hat und nicht erst horizontal scrollen muss.

sw6 standard has an anti spam function buuild in that you can activate but that automatically activates it on all forms and in the checkout. having it in the checkout is not positive for conversion optimisation. so the standard sw6 option is not a good solution against spam. this plugin allows you to set yourself where you want it active. so you can apply it to contactform, newsletter, registration. i did not find any other plugin for sw6 so this was our only option and i am happy it is out there. i use themeware and that now also works with this plugin. recommended
