How to use reCAPTCHA

reCAPTCHA is a system used to identify whether or not a form is being submitted by a human or a bot. Usually, this is done by asking the user to check a box labeled “I’m not a robot”, or by having the user complete a quick puzzle. 

reCAPTCHA tests are easy for humans to solve but hard for bots and other malicious software to figure out.

It’s more than likely that you’re using webforms and landing pages to collect your subscribers. By pairing reCAPTCHA with [double opt-in], you’re setting up the best line of defense against bot attacks.

In a landing page or website form

  1. Navigate to the Sites tab.

  2. Find the landing page or website to which you want to add reCAPTCHA and click Edit.

  1. Once in the site editor, hover over the form block and click the pencil icon.

  2. In the sidebar, click the Form tab.

  1. Click Form settings.

  2. Check the box labeled reCAPTCHA.

In a pop-up or embedded form

  1. Navigate to the Forms page.

  2. Find the form to which you want to add reCAPTCHA and click Edit.

  1. In the sidebar, click the Settings tab.

  2. Check the box labeled reCAPTCHA.

Note: If you wish to use reCAPTCHA but you don’t use forms created in MailerLite, check that the platform you do use supports reCAPTCHA or consider switching to MailerLite forms.
