List of the Best WordPress Antispam Plugins

Top 5 Best WordPress Antispam Plugins. While there are plenty of ways to prevent spam, these free anti-spam plugins are a great place to start.

1. Akismet

akismet
The number one WordPress antispam plugin in the repository, developed by the Automattic team – Akismet brings enterprise-level spam protection to your WordPress site. With Akismet, the user installs and activates plugin using an API key (signup required). The plugin works by uploading all incoming comments to the Akismet server. Comments then undergo hundreds* of antispam algorithms (* we really don’t know the exact number). Correct comments are published, while the rest are thrashed to the spam queue.
Notes:
  • Akismet is free for non-profit and personal use (up to 50,000 monthly spam checks)
  • Commercial licenses start at $5/month
  • Compatible with top WordPress plugins such as Jetpack and Contact Form 7
  • View every comment’s status history to see which were spammed by a moderator, or put in the spam folder automatically

2. Stop WP Comment Spam by Fullworks

Stop WP Comment Spam
Clean up your comments section with the Stop WP Comment Spam plugin. It’s a quick, easy and free way to keep spam from taking over your posts. With the plugin installed, you can automatically prevent spam and hold flagged comments for review in the “spam” tab (where you can manually review and approve or delete comments). Or you can enable a setting to automatically delete all spam – either immediately, or after being held for a set number of days.
Notes:
  • Automated spam filters
  • Option to delete or hold for reviews
  • Works well with other WordPress security plugins
