reCAPTCHA - Form Spam Protection

What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free service that protects your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.

Generating your key

Label This is solely for your own purposes and only visible to you for future reference. So if you look at this in the future you know what you used this key for. It could be something like 'Limecube form protection'
reCAPTCHA type
  1. Choose 'reCAPTCHA v2'
  2. then in the sub-options choose 'Invisible reCAPTCHA badge'
Domains It is recommended to add both:
  1. Your live domain name. e.g. businessname.com
  2. Your temporary domain (web address) if you are setting this up prior to going live (this can be copied from your browser address bar)

It should not include https:// or www.

Owners This is your account email address. Typically there is no need to add any additional email addresses.
In the step above it is very important you selected 'Invisible reCAPTCHA' otherwise your form will not work

Your keys will then look like this: (these are not real keys and cannot be used)

Step 2 - Inserting your key into your Limecube website

The next step is to take your keys generated in the step above, and insert them into your Limecube website. 

Go to your top menu, then: 'More' > Administration > Settings > Security

Watch this video below to see how.

Please make sure you test your forms after adding reCAPTCHA to make sure you receive the form emails. And always check junk mail if it does not land in your inbox. :)
