Spam can be a challenge for any form. Now with the Gravity Forms reCAPTCHA Add-On, we have added Google reCAPTCHA v3 to the toolbox of anti-spam methods that you can use to protect your forms, helping to reduce the amount of spam form entries you receive.
Google reCAPTCHA is a free security service that protects your website from fraud and abuse. Google reCAPTCHA v3 not only helps identify spam entries, it also ensures that your users aren’t interrupted during a form submission, providing a smoother user-experience and boosting form conversion rates.
With reCAPTCHA v3, Google will track actions on your site and then use the data collected to identify possible spam or bot activity. All interactions on your site are given a score, with 1.0 being a likely good interaction, and 0.0 probably a bot.
When a form entry is submitted, the Google reCAPTCHA score that is generated by the interaction is stored with the form entry. Gravity Forms will compare the score to the threshold established in your settings, and if the entry is less than or equal to that threshold, the entry will be sent to spam.
You can integrate your forms seamlessly with Google reCAPTCHA v3 using our reCATPCHA Add-On. Simply sign up for a free reCAPTCHA account with Google, create your reCAPTCHA v3 keys, and sync with the Gravity Forms reCAPTCHA Add-On. Once complete, you can add reCAPTCHA v3 spam protection to any or all of your forms.
Gravity Forms has built-in core support for Google reCAPTCHA v2, and integrates with both Checkbox and Invisible reCAPTCHA. You do not need the Gravity Forms reCAPTCHA Add-On to use Google reCAPTCHA v2 with your forms.
