Invisible reCAPTCHA

My clients are complaining about the reCAPTCHA saying that it keeps their users from using the forms. An invisible reCAPTCHA could be a possible solution.

Hi Ben,
Are you referring to the recaptcha that requires you to click a checkbox “I am not a robot” that keeps users away? :slight_smile:

That is the one that is available in Wappler at present. I am referring to

Yes I know, I just asked as I was wondering why the “I am not a robot” checkbox is keeping the users from submitting the form :slight_smile:

We will probably integrate the new invisible recaptcha soon.

I had a client who was unhappy with the reCAPTCHA included on a contact form. I replaced it with an alternative which I told him probably wouldn’t be as effective, but would at least be invisible. I added a ‘honeypot’ feature - where the submitted form fails validation if a particular field is given a value.

I gave the field a plausible name and ‘hid’ it with css:
#preferred {
left: 2000px;
(probably more reliable than visibility:none)

I appreciate this solution is not as sophisticated as a reCAPTCHA but it has worked well in this case. I added the ‘honeypot’ about a year and a half ago. I redirected bad submissions (where the hidden was given a value) to myself - there have been almost 1400 so far. As far as I know, my client has not received a single email from a robot during this time.


It is possible to insert invisible Captcha in a Wappler page
To do so, you must first register the site on Google ReCaptcha ( choosing “Invisible” to obtain the site key and the secret key
Then configure client and server side
It works great

Bringing this up again. We more and more have to replace our honeypot solution with this ugly and user unfriendy Recaptcha. Please provide a Wappler implementation for this.
