Phone Number Validation Squarespace

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, 

I am getting a lot of leads with fake phone numbers - would you know the best way to ensure that the phone numbers input on the  site are correct? Just trying to minimize the number of fake entries.

I'm not sure there's much you can do about this. Are you getting genuine leads (correct name/email etc) that simply put a fake phone number because they don't want to share it?

When I first set up my site, I had the same problem. What worked for me was using a validation method that checks if the number follows the correct format for US phone numbers. You can easily do this with some code tweaks or using a form plugin that offers this feature. Another approach is to use CAPTCHA or reCAPTCHA to ensure the form is filled out by a real person. As for those usa temp number, they can be tricky since they often don't verify against standard validation rules. If you're seeing a pattern with those, maybe consider blocking known temporary number ranges.
