Configure Captcha

Invisible reCAPTCHA uses artificial intelligence to prevent bots (non-human entities) from engaging in harmful activities, such as obtaining leaked usernames/passwords.

Example: When a user signs in to their account for the very first time or resets their password, the Invisible reCAPTCHA analyzes the user and determines if they are a human. If reCAPTCHA determines that the user is human, they are taken to the sign in page where they can enter their credentials.

As an administrator, you can configure Invisible reCAPTCHA V2 in Specops Password Reset. To make use of reCAPTCHA in Specops Password Reset, you must generate a site and secret key in Google’s admin console, and register these keys in the Specops Password Reset Configuration tool.

Example of secret and site keys:

  • Site key: 1LdC642UAAAAAL6MBmeSRJB22UJaHSxohbDtZUpp
  • Secret key: 6LdM648UAAAA6DUaNyeriVpHSyWd-Hn65sUEYIwM
Specops Password Reset only supports Invisible reCAPTCHA badge V2. When generating the reCAPTCHA keys in Google’s admin console, selectreCAPTCHA v2 and then select theInvisible reCAPTCHA Badge option.
