What is "Google reCAPTCHA"?
Google reCAPTCHA is a free service, provided and maintained by Google, that protects your website from spam and abuse.
reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease. If Google suspects one of your visitors to not be a 'human', it will automatically present a small logical problem that any human can easily solve, but a robot or spam agent cannot.
How does it work?
By installing this extension on your Magento website you can prevent spam bots from automatically populating your newsletter subscriber list with junk email addresses, and protect any other form on your website as required.
This extension provides an ‘invisible’ approach so your customers do not see an ugly CAPTCHA image to fill out and the entire process happens behind the scenes when you select Google Invisible reCAPTCHA mode. With Google reCAPTCHA V2 your customers only see the “I’m not a robot’ on selecting an element of your form.
