We use the reCAPTCHA system from Google on a few pages of our site. This page will attempt to answer the most common questions about the reCAPTCHA system.
Why is this on your site?
Having the CAPTCHA feature helps us to help combat spam and spam bots from being able to sign up for accounts in mass.
How does it work?
When you click the check box to show that you are a person and are not using a script or bot to create an account or submit a help request, you will see a series of images that you will need to interact with. Simply tap on any tiles you see with the object described in the text. If new images appear with the same object, tap those as well. When there are none left, click Verify.
I'm getting an error. What is causing this?
"Cannot contact reCAPTCHA. Check your connection and try again."
Here are some simple tips to try to troubleshoot this error,
- Try disabling any browser extentions or plugins temporarrly
