Security Assurance

The PSC by CleanTalk involved a thorough security review of Contact Form 7’s codebase, identifying and addressing potential vulnerabilities. This ensures that the plugin adheres to the highest security standards, providing users with peace of mind. Contact Form 7 is designed with privacy and data security in mind. By default, it does not track users, write personal data to the database, send data to external servers, or use cookies. This commitment to privacy makes it a reliable choice for handling user data securely. While the plugin itself is secure, certain features such as reCAPTCHA, Akismet, and Stripe integrations may involve sending data to external service providers. Contact Form 7 advises users to review the privacy policies of these services to ensure compliance with their own privacy standards.


Contact Form 7 version 5.9.5 is now even more secure, thanks to its PSC from CleanTalk. This ensures that users can continue to rely on Contact Form 7 for managing their contact forms with confidence, knowing that their data and user interactions are protected by top-notch security practices.
