What is Google reCAPTCHA?

Google reCAPTCHA is a security service provided by Google that protects your website from spam and abuse. The technology works in the background of your website to determine if an online form is being submitted by a human person or an internet bot.

Google reCAPTCHA v2 has been implemented into eCatholic's online forms and payments to block malicious bot submissions while also allowing non-suspicious human users to complete the form with no interruptions. It is automatically activated to protect all online form and payment submissions made on eCatholic-powered websites.

What does Google reCAPTCHA v2 look like on my website?

Google reCAPTCHA v2 is located at the bottom of every Forms, Forms + Payments, and Donations module. Each time you use one of the specified modules, you will see a Google reCAPTCHA notice beneath the form's submit button (pictured below). This version requires your site visitor to click the check box before completing their online submission.

If you have any questions about Google reCAPTCHA for your eCatholic website, please send an email to our support team at [email protected].
