Adding a CAPTCHA to Your Form

Adding CAPTCHA helps keep your form more secure from spammers and bots. It works by asking the person filling out your form to check a box at the bottom that says, "I'm not a robot."

To add a CAPTCHA:

  1. Log in and go to Forms.
  2. Click Edit next to your form.
  3. In the Form Builder, click the Form Settings tab.
  4. From the Captcha dropdown in the Limit Form Activity section, choose one of the options: Auto, Always Show, or Never Show.
