Why should I consider using CAPTCHA on my web forms?

CAPTCHA can be used to help protect your organization from spam and prevent hackers from access your web forms by asking your users to complete a simple test that proves the user is in fact a human and not a computer. 

CAPTCHA tests can be used to…

  • Protect the integrity of your web forms by stopping hackers
  • Stop brute force attacks where hackers attempt to repeatedly log-in using different passwords
  • Prevent hackers from signing up for multiple accounts that they’ll then go on to use for nefarious purposes

The following steps will walk you through a simple process to add CAPTCHA to your web form.
