It’s a great plugin, it works very well to reduce spam! I use it with all my agency clients

I have been using this tool now for several months and comparing it to other similar tools it seems very effective. I especially like the ability to restrict messaging to specific countries — either by inclusion of those countries, or the exclusion of other countries. It also supports integration with elementor forms which is useful

This anti-spam plugin is a total lifesaver! It catches spam like a champ, way better than most others I’ve tried. But the real MVP here is Onar. The guy is super quick to respond to any support messages and is all about making the plugin even better for us users. I mentioned a feature I thought would be cool, and bam, he had it up and running in just a week. Seriously impressive. If you’re fed up with spam and want support that actually listens and acts fast, this plugin and Onar’s help are what you need!

I had an Issuesy with the plugin and the support team was so amazing, the response time was immediate and the issue was solved instantly. It works easy with Elementor Forms. I highly recommend OOPSpam Plugin.
