reCAPTCHA protects you against spam and other types of automated abuse and will enable you to block abusive form submissions by spam-bots.
What’s a CAPTCHA?
CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from bots or automated programs usually written to generate spam. Any submittable form provided by CONJ such as product enquiry is already integrated with one-click reCAPTCHA (V2) to protect you from receiving countless spams.
CAPTCHA is an acronym for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.
How does a CAPTCHA work?
The I’m not a robot checkbox requires the user to click a checkbox indicating the user is not a robot. This will either pass the user immediately (with No CAPTCHA) or challenge them to validate whether or not they are human.
