    Hello folks!

    Summer is here. Time to get outside and dabble in new and exciting pursuits. Rock-climbing? White water rafting? Jumping into a new Netflix series without watching the trailer? Live on the wild side!

    Here at JotForm, we cheer on the adventurous spirit by automating many of your business processes. With interactive and powerful online forms for collecting and managing data, you can rest easy.

    However, with all the automation in place, we are aware of the dangers that lurk in the internet jungle. We are here to protect your online forms and data. One of the ways in which we do this is with a powerful form field: the Google® reCaptcha widget.


    One of Google’s latest innovations, it prevents bots and spammers from making a mess of the data you are collecting via your online form.

    This means that your form remains protected, and your data even more reliable.
