What is reCaptcha?

reCaptcha is a human v. robot checkpoint, that requires humans to click a checkbox, with the purpose of preventing (or slowing down) bots (software robots) that can spam you via your website forms.


How to get reCaptcha for your website

  1. Login to your Gmail or G Suite account.
  2. Go to https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/create
  3. Select reCAPTCHA v3
  4. Under “Label”, use any label that will make it easy for you to identify the site or project in the future.
  5. Under “Domains”, type in your website domain, example: myawesomewebsite.com (DO NOT include http or https)
  6. Owners: your email address should be auto-filled here. Enter additional email addresses only if you want an additional person to manage this reCAPTCHA with you.
  7. Click the checkbox to Accept the reCAPTCHA Terms of Service.
  8. Click SUBMIT.
  9. On the next screen you will see your SITE KEY and SECRET KEY. Copy each one (copy and paste the text, not a screenshot) and send it to your web designer/developer to add it to your website.

That’s it!
