Enable reCAPTCHA from the console

You can enable reCAPTCHA directly from the ReachFive Console.

What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free service offered by Google that helps to block automated attempts to log in with user accounts and most importantly, protects your site from abuse. reCAPTCHA v3 uses advanced risk analysis to determine if the attempt is human or bot. With this version, there is no need for user interaction like there was in v2.

Check out the reCAPTCHA version differences here.


  • You must have access to the ReachFive Console.

  • You must have a Developer, Manager, or Administrator role.

  • You must have an existing client or you should create a new client.

    If you do not see the feature enabled, contact support. We’ll be happy to help.
