Surprisingly effective!

If you’re having a problem with those irritating phony signups to your website like I was having, I highly recommend you installing this plugin. All my spam have disappeared since I installed it! I only wish I knew about it a lot sooner.


The plug-in works great so far.


Very good. Install and just forget about it. It’s that simple.

Excellent spam defense

We have been using SpamShield for just over a year, and it has done an excellent job keeping spam from our comments. I hope that the issues with WordPress.org can be resolved since I would not like an effective plugin like this to be unavailable.
