How to Add a Captcha FieldLast Update: March 9, 2017
What is the benefit of adding a CAPTCHA field?
The answer is simple, a CAPTCHA helps protect your forms against spammers and spambots that are programmed to attack websites flooding them with tons of unwanted information by requesting that a physical code word is typed into the box to be matched and checked.
Before starting, there are 2 types of CAPTCHA when using the default one; CAPTCHA and re-CAPTCHA. We’ll show you the difference down below.
In JotForm Version 4:
1. First, in the "Build" tab, click "Add Form Element":
2. Find in the list the "Captcha" field and add it in your from by drag and drop.
3. If you want something more complex to provide a higher level of protection, you can turn on reCAPTCHA. This option serves as a means of double-protection by making it even harder to enter or bypass. Be advised: in doing so you may irritate your customers.

In JotForm Version 3:
1. Go to Quick Fields and drag/drop the Captcha in the form.
2. If you want something more complex to provide a higher level of protection, you can turn on reCAPTCHA. Re-CAPTCHA serves as a means of double-protection by making it even harder to enter or bypass. Be advised: in doing so you may irritate your customers.
3. Click the "Save" button to apply the changes.
You're done! It's really that simple!
When you use a CAPTCHA field, you do not have to set it as a required field. It is already automatically set to “required” when you place it into your form.
We also have some advance captcha widgets that you can use. You can check them below:
Also please note how a CAPTCHA field works. If a person enters the correct CAPTCHA, the form is accepted. However, if an Incorrect CAPTCHA is entered, it will lead to a secondary CAPTCHA. The secondary CAPTCHA will appear in the middle of the page. If you a valid CAPTCHA is entered there correctly, the submission will finally be accepted.
