As online attacks continue to grow more sophisticated, organizations must consider implementing additional security measures to protect against them. For the Sitecore platform, the reCAPTCHA v3 feature can be implemented in Sitecore Forms to provide an extra layer of security for form submissions. I had to work on this recently.
What is reCAPTCHA v3?
reCAPTCHA v3 is a free spam prevention service provided by Google. It helps to protect websites from spam and abuse by analyzing user behavior across the website and providing a score based on the user’s actions. Unlike previous versions of reCAPTCHA, the v3 version is completely invisible to the end-user and does not require any additional authentication steps.
Setting up reCAPTCHA v3 in Sitecore Forms
To set up reCAPTCHA v3 in Sitecore Forms, you’ll first need to create a Google reCAPTCHA API key. Then you can install the Sitecore Forms Extensions. At the time I was using that with Sitecore 9.3, it only have support for Recaptcha V2. I ended creating a new element for the form called ReCaptchaV3.
Understanding reCAPTCHA v3 score validation
When a user submits a Sitecore Form secured with reCAPTCHA v3, the form submission data is sent to the Google reCAPTCHA service for verification. If the reCAPTCHA service detects suspicious behavior, such as a high score with little interaction, the submission will be blocked.
Why is reCAPTCHA v3 important for Sitecore Forms?
Implementing reCAPTCHA v3 in Sitecore Forms can protect your website from spam and abuse, ensuring the data submitted through the forms is legitimate. Also the V3 is the non-intrusive way to validate a form. So the user doesn’t have to click on pictures or type in some text. This not only can help keep your site clean but also can help maintain the site’s reputation in the eyes of users and search engines.
