Hear that sound?
That’s you never worrying about spam again.

Over 500 billion blocked

We’ve been blocking spam literally since Wedding Crashers came out. That was like 2005. In that time, we’ve removed over 500 billion pieces of spam from the web. Yes, that’s billion with a “b”.

Across 100 million sites

Look, we’re not saying you should trust us just because 100 million other sites do. But that’s also kind of what we’re saying. We want to rid the internet of spam for good, including your site. We’ll even do all of the work.

With 99.99% accuracy

Akismet is powered by machine learning, meaning that we learn more about spam — and get more accurate — with each site we protect. And after analyzing real spam data on over 100M users, we can smell spam from a mile away at this point.

Built to work behind‑the‑scenes, with your customers’ experience in mind.

Most spam protection works by forcing you to dump your spam problems on your site visitor. Like asking them to identify a bunch of stoplights. It’s a bad experience that creates friction and causes visitors to bail.

But Akismet is different. It’s built to work intelligently in the background, so there’s zero friction added for your visitors. And less friction for the visitor equals more leads, sales, and revenue for you.

Built on the cloud, so it won’t slow you down.

With all of those websites (over 100 million) protected, we’ve compiled possibly the largest spam database in the world. Nay, the universe! But it’s cool because we store all of this heavy data in the cloud, which means you’ll see zero impact on site speed, bounce rates, or conversion rates. So you can go ahead and tell the marketing team to chill.

Easily integrates with the tools you already use

Akismet offers seamless integrations with tools and plugins like Jetpack, Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, Formidable Forms, and countless others. If you’re using tools for capturing user‑submitted text, there’s a good chance we have an easy integration.

Visibility to know it’s working

We know that the 99.99% accuracy score is impressive, but you won’t have to take our word for it. We’ll give you a fancy dashboard to see what Akismet is blocking as spam and what it is letting through. If there’s a mistake, you intervene and Akismet will learn from it.

A developer‑friendly API built by the team behind WordPress.

WordPress powers 40% of the internet, which is crazy to think about. And Akismet was built by WordPress co‑founder Matt Mullenweg, a huge fan of open source, if you hadn’t heard. So as we say in marketing, Akismet was built by developers for developers.

What this means for you is Akismet can be easily built into any application via our flexible API. Even better, Akismet is also platform‑agnostic, meaning it works with Drupal, phpBB3, Joomla, and many others. Bottom line — your dev team is going to love you for this.

It’s time for some
peace of mind

Ready to finally stop wasting time, money, and anxiety on spam? Let’s get rid of it, for good.

Case study

How ConvertKit keeps subscriber lists clean

Before Akismet, they mentioned always “putting out fires” for their clients. Clients were contacting support b/c their email lists were being overrun by fake subscribers.

Now with Akismet working behind the scenes as part of their offering, clients don’t ever have to think about spam – they just know they’re protected.
