Google reCAPTCHA is a free service that protects your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive challenges to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.

Funraise Giving Forms have a built-in integration with Google reCAPTCHA. This integration is automatically enabled and does not require configuration.

reCAPTCHA is dynamically displayed on the Giving Form when Funraise detects fraud patterns (high volume of donations coming from a single IP address, for example). reCAPTCHA is removed from the form after detected fraud patterns cease. By dynamically displaying reCAPTCHA, your forms provide the most efficient donation process and experience for your donors while still mitigating bot attacks.

For organizations using Funraise's legacy Giving Form V1, reCAPTCHA requires additional configuration.
