The 2BC Form Security WordPress plugin will increase security and reduce spam by using tools like the Google reCAPTCHA V2 widget (noCAPTCHA CAPTCHA) and a honeypot field. While simple, these can be very effective at keeping spam bots and scripts out of your site. 2BC Form Security has now also been updated to work with BuddyPress! Cut down on registration spam by installing, activating, and enabling for the registration form.
2BC Form Security will automatically activate a honeypot field in any of the locations marked in the settings. With a few minutes of setup, it can also display the Google reCAPTCHA v2 widget in the same locations.
