Announcing: New Security Integrations

We are pleased to announce the introduction of two significant updates aimed at bolstering the security of our forms, quizzes, and comments widgets.

Recognizing the critical need to protect your online interactions, we have implemented these robust integrations:

  • Google reCAPTCHA: This feature helps ensure that interactions on your forms are genuine by effectively keeping automated spam and bots at a distance.
  • OOPSpam: Enhancing our defenses against spam, this integration works to filter out unwelcome submissions, leaving your inbox with only meaningful and legitimate content.

The significance of these updates cannot be understated in the current digital environment, where the security of your website's interactive elements is paramount. These integrations are designed not only for security but also to ensure a smooth and secure experience for your users.

Introducing: New Widgets

Social Proof Avatars: The Social Proof Avatars widget is designed to enhance the credibility and trustworthiness of your website by showcasing avatars of real users, customers, or followers. By displaying these avatars, visitors can see the tangible community engagement and approval of your products, services, or content, encouraging them to take action or make a purchase. This widget is particularly useful for businesses looking to leverage social proof as a means to increase conversion rates and build a stronger online presence.

Quiz Widget: The Quiz Maker Widget offers an engaging and interactive way to connect with your audience by incorporating quizzes into your website. This tool allows you to create customized quizzes that can serve various purposes, such as educational content, customer feedback, or fun engagement activities. By adding this widget to your site, you can not only provide value to your visitors but also gather insights, increase dwell time, and encourage social sharing. This is an excellent tool for educators, marketers, and content creators looking to enhance user engagement and collect valuable data.
