    Can we control the verification words that appear on a CAPTCHA?

    Asked by gazzconsulting on May 05, 2017 at 01:12 PM

    Once of our clients had this included in an email they received through their form. Can we control or edit words to be included in CAPTHCHAs? We don't want certain words used



    Also the capcha code at bottom of this page is the word "regret" is that on purpose? A sign? An omen?

    Captcha is used to prevent bots from filling your form numerous times and therefore there is no other purpose or meaning of that field. Values that are appearing are completely random and we don't have control over it.

    But if it works for you, and if you didn't use already, you can try with our Google reCaptcha widget:


    Or if you want to avoid using the words you can try our drawing captcha widget:


    Please let us know if that could work for you or if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
