Have you ever received a message through a WordPress contact form, but couldn't reply because the visitor's email address was entered incorrectly?
When website visitors hand over their email address in a contact form, user registration or newsletter signup form, there can be a huge problem.
You might find that those marketing emails you've got lined up don't get sent. There's an error somewhere that no one picked up. The email address was typed in wrong to begin with.
All it takes is a simple typo but a simple typo in the email address field can cause huge headaches.
A visitor could enter the number 8 instead of 9 and suddenly, you won't be able to get in touch with your new signup.
Whatever your new lead or customer filled in the form for, they will miss out on. This could lead to frustration on their end or even poor customer reviews. They'll feel like they've been forgotten, all because of a simple mistake.
Everyone's left disappointed. You miss out on a lead, and your visitor misses out on all your interesting content or promotions.

If the two fields don't have matching information, this will flag up an error message. This prompts the visitor to try again to ensure that the field is typed in correctly.
