Platform Updates: Google ReCAPTCHA for Added Layer of Security

Sonder Digital are pleased to be able to let our clients know about the integration of the latest Google ReCaptcha, rolled out across the platform to all users. Providing state of the art spam protection and security for your website, it's described as a low fraction, effortless interaction for your users. 

Increased Security Google ReCaptcha
The new ReCaptcha has state of the art security to stop spam

The reCaptcha is a completely free service provided by Google, aimed at ensuring that the user is a human as opposed to a robot. These so-called robots are rife on the internet, and tend to be the ones that give you spam emails as well as falsifying any tracking data. The ReCaptcha uses an advanced risk analysis engine that stops automated software from engaging in these abusive activities on your website. 

The updated version provides a much better and smoother experience for customers using your website. The vast majority of the time, simply a click in the box is enough to determine that it's a human and not a bot. For years Google made the user solve a Captcha by reading distorted text and typing it in. The whole experience has been radically simplified, making for a much-improved user experience whilst being even tighter on spam.

We've updated all of our client websites with the new feature at no extra cost. You can see it an action on any page that requires a contact form or the inputting of data from the user. Our commitment to staying on top of the latest updates and developments on the web means your website will constantly be evolving and improving - often without you even realising.

If you have any questions on the new ReCaptcha, get in touch and we'll gladly tell you more about it!
