Spam Control

Overview

We support security mechanism such as CAPTCHA, and Google's reCAPTCHA services to prevent bot or malicious submissions that spam your forms and generate legitimate entries for your business. These mechanisms work to primarily verify if the user is a human or a bot. To enable this, in your form builder click Settings >> General >> SpamControl and choose the option you wish to enable.

CAPTCHA

CAPTCHA requires the user to enter a combination of alphabets or numbers, which gets easier for humans and makes it harder for the bots to recognize. You can provide a Label name to appear in the form for your CAPTCHA, say, "Verification Code" and also leave a message for your responders, say,  "Enter the text in the box below".

Note:

  • In general, pressing the enter key will submit the form. Enabling CAPTCHA can be useful in avoiding users from submitting incomplete forms by mistake.
  • Users cannot submit your form without entering the CAPTCHA, thereby ensuring they have filled in all important fields and had not submitted unintentionally.

reCAPTCHA v2 (I'm not a robot" Checkbox)

Enabling reCAPTCHA v2 checkbox, provides an "I am not a robot" checkbox on your form, requesting the form respondents to check that box to verify themselves as human. To configure this for your form, you need to set up the API keys

reCAPTCHA v2 (Invisible reCAPTCHA badge)

Unlike reCAPTCHA v2 checkbox, the invisible reCAPTCHA option doesn't include any field on the form. Only a reCAPTCHA badge appears on the footer of the site during the form completion. To configure this for your form, you need to set up the API keys

reCAPTCHA API Keys

To enable reCAPTCHA options, you will require a pair of SiteKey and a SecretKey from Google. For this, you need to login to your google account and generate these API keys.

Note:

While setting up the API keys, add Domains based on the domain name of your form. For example, for a form with a custom domain named Zylker, the Domains value will be forms.zylker.com.
