Hi I am looking to add an additional security question to my Enfold Contact Form – something like:
“which is bigger 3, 5 or 7?” and have 3 answers in a dropdown choice/box. And make it compulsory!
Is this possible and would you have a piece of code for this?

Are you using reCapthca? You might want to consider using it.
Here are the docs for you:

Not sure this provides the answer I am looking for?
I want to know how to add an additional field into the Enfold Contact Form because even though I added the checkbox as a compulsory field – the hacker simply bypassed it and returned the outcome to false instead of true? Not sure how they can do this but if you at I try to send the form it wont let us do so without ticking the checkbox.

We don’t really know how they get around it, but they probably have a script that deletes the checkbox before filling up the fields with the details, then send it. Or they’ve found a way to manipulate the validation script. Either way, activating the Google reCAPTCHA option should help in this case as @victoria suggested because the form will be validated not only in the client-side but also in the server-side, which makes the contact form more secure. You should also install security plugins such as WordFence to block unwanted traffic from the site and for additional protection.

I have gone ahead and used the reCAPTCHA as suggested ant it is working so far…
Thanks for the help :)
