This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

BotRx DeTx Plugin


DeTx uses a global database of attackers (Bots) and also includes Artificial Intelligence and data analysis to identify Bots. Bots and the fraud they cause are always changing. BotRx DeTx Plugin for WordPress continuously monitors network data and traffic patterns, using AI to identify and correlate threats. With our global collective intelligence, we glean insights from thousands of websites to fingerprint the Bot DNA and identify what assets they are targeting.

Main features

  • Detect Bots: identify bots (includes web crawlers, automatic tools and headless browsers).
  • Detect Malicious Actors: identify malicious visitors”
  • Geolocation: identify visitors by city and country.

BotRx DeTx Plugin cleans up after itself. All plugin settings and log entries will be removed from your database when the plugin is uninstalled via the Plugins screen.
More specifically, BotRx DeTx Plugin adds option(‘botrx_setting’) and table(‘wp_botrx_stats’) to the database. When the plugin is uninstalled via the Plugins screen, both of those items are removed automatically.

How is this plugin different than a Web Application Firewall?

A WAF is used to manage block lists from an application server view. BotRx Detx Plugin is for bot detection only. It doesn’t have any capability to block traffic and provides detailed graphs and information about bot traffic on your site.

= The Core JS link is not appearing in the source code of my pages.=
In order for the plugin to add the code to your pages, your theme must include the template tag, wp_footer(). This is a recommended tag for all WordPress themes, so your theme should include it. If not, you can either add it yourself or contact the theme developer and ask for help. Here is more information about wp_footer(). Once the footer tag is included, the plugin will be able to add the trigger link to your pages.

Will this be able to differentiate between good bots like Google and Bing?

Yes, BotRx Detx Plugin will details bad bots by type and also shows traffic that’s Human.

How do I reset my current version of BotRx DeTx Plugin?

Visit the plugin settings and click the “Update” button.

Is there a plan in BotRx for DeTx Plugin to send email alerts?

We now have capability to send email reports daily, weekly, or monthly but no alerts are possible at this time. Please email us and we will set the report frequency based on your preference.

Are Multiple websites supported with one API key?

the BotRx DeTx Plugin requires an API key for proper installation. It is recommended to use a single API key for each website, otherwise data for multiple sites will be mixed. The API key is permanent as long as you wish to make use of our bot intelligence – welcome aboard!

What about WordPress automatic (hidden) footer insertions?

By default, WordPress will automatically serve a hidden, “virtual” javascript file to incoming pages. DeTx JS is inserted on each page, and the collection engine sends data to the DeTx cloud for each page. The DeTx plugin doesn’t generate or impact existing server-side processes. We also don’t have server interaction, other than to simply count each web server.

Do you offer any other security plugins?

No, indeed, this is our foray into this exciting place, much obliged!

I saw this new bot detecting plugin and since it was free, I thought there was nothing to lose. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much, but I was WOWED. This tool is way better than others I used. As a developer, bots are such a PITA! I finally found a tool that will show me all of them so that I can keep my site and my clients' websites secure. Bottom line...I highly recommend this plugin. It comes with wicked cool reports and shows you the bots the other tools miss. If you want to keep your site safe--you need this.
