Get rid of spam For only $4.95 per month

No more approving or vetting

Manually reviewing spammy form submissions eats up time — time you could spend growing your business.

Verify less, convert more

No more CAPTCHAs, so visitors submit more forms and you won't waste time on fake responses.

An experience they'll all love

No more spam means visitors can comment and engage distraction-free — without being sidetracked, duped, or just annoyed.

Jetpack has caught almost 2 million blocked spam comments on my sites. What I appreciate the most is how the system learns as we go. If a spam comment slips through, or a good comment gets spammed, we can make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Jetpack Anti-spam work with form submissions?

Yes. If you use Jetpack’s contact form (either the Form block, or the classic editor version), your contact form submissions will automatically be scanned for spam. You can also manually mark comments as spam/not spam via the Feedback section of WP Admin to help Anti-spam learn to flag comments like that in future.

For information on using Jetpack Anti-spam with other form plugins, please view this support article from Akismet about how to use Akismet with your contact forms.
