LoginRadius Identity Platform provides you the feature to add another layer of security to your registration form by configuring CAPTCHA, which ensures that the person registering is not a bot.
Note: CAPTCHA is mainly used as a security check to ensure only humans can pass through. Generally, bots are not capable of solving a CAPTCHA challenge.
As a part of your Login and Registration flows, LoginRadius reCAPTCHA settings allow you to enable Google reCAPTCHA, which is a service from Google that protects web applications from spam and abuse. It is easy for humans to solve, but hard for “bots” and other malicious software to figure out.
LoginRadius supports the use of Invisible reCAPTCHA. This version of reCAPTCHA provides a minimally intrusive experience to your consumers by tracking their mouse movements to identify if they are a bot. If so, it presents a CAPTCHA challenge on the screen.
The following explains the configuration and deployment of Google reCAPTCHA:
