CAPTCHA Group

Captcha is a method to protect forms from submission by robots using Google API Version 2.

Invisible reCAPTCHA requires no user interaction unless the algorithm suspects that the user is a robot. It places an icon with slider at the bottom left or bottom right of the screen, or icon with open slider directly in the form.

reCAPTCHA places a box requiring user selection directly in the form. It responds with a green tick unless the algorithm suspects that the user is a robot.

In either case, a suspect response will invoke a puzzle to solve.

After enabling one of the Captcha plugins you need to select a Default Captcha in Global Configuration.
