About Akismet

This option adds an Akismet Spam Filter to your form's processing.  

When someone submits a response, Akismet will automatically check that response for spam. If the response gets flagged as spam, FormAssembly will mark the response as invalid.


You'll need an Essentials plan or higher with FormAssembly. This includes Team, Enterprise, and Government plans.


To enable the Akismet filter for your FormAssembly instance, follow these steps:

  1. Sign up for an Akismet account. Note: A paid subscription may be required. 
  2. Grab the API key. (You'll be automatically redirected to get a key after you sign up for the account.) 
  3. Email support@formassembly.com or open a support request, and tell us (a) your FormAssembly account and (b) your API key. 
  4. We'll configure your instance and email you when it's ready.

Next Steps

Once we have configured your instance, you'll need to enable this in the Admin Dashboard in your account.

  1. Go to Admin Dashboard
  2. Click on All Forms
  3. Click on Edit Properties and enable Akismet.
  4. Once it has been enabled, it will then show on the Processing page for your forms.
