What is a honeypot field?

A honeypot field is a trap for automated spam-software. It's a hidden field that a normal user will never see. Sometimes it's a field with the type hidden in most of the cases it is made hidden with some special CSS styles.

Since a normal user would never see this field, he would never fill it in. Thus, if it is filled in, you can assume that an automated software is trying to fill in the form with spam data.
