If you’looking for ways to prevent spam form submissions on your WordPress site and to ensure that the contact details captured are not fake, Contact Form 7 Email and OTP Verification by Xfinity Soft is the best plugin for that.
An extension of Contact Forms 7 Plugin, the Contact Form 7 OTP Verification plugin integrates your contact forms with Twilio, the default WordPress Email API, or SendGrid, adding a two-step, email and SMS verification layer to form submissions. This ensures that all data you capture from forms is verified and validated.
Key Features of Contact Form 7 Email Verification Plugin:
Twilio Integration for Contact Form 7 OTP Verification
Contact Form 7 OTP Verification lets you integrate your contact forms with Twilio API. This integration allows you to send OTP code via SMS to the phone number given in the form submission. When the user enters the code sent via SMS, the form submission is verified and added to the database.
SendGrid Integration for Email Verification
Contact Form 7 Email Verification lets you integrate your SendGrid account with CF7 forms. This integration allows you to send an email with a verification link to the email address given in the form submission. When the user clicks the link in the email, the form submission is verified and the data is added to the database.
Verify Emails Through Default WordPress Email Functionality
Contact Form 7 Email Verification also lets you send verification emails via the default WordPress email functionality.

When the user verifies the email address by clicking the link given, the form entry is added to the database.
Verify by Email, SMS, or Both
Contact Form 7 Email Verification plugin lets you verify by both or either of these verification methods: email, SMS, or both channels. When creating the Contact Form, add the keyword ‘verify’ in the email field to enable email verification.
