Recaptcha V3

Bot Rejection

If you enable Google recaptcha V3, ActiveDEMAND will treat visitors that do not meet your defined threshold as 'bots' and not record website visits or engagement for the bot. It will record a bot visit with full attribution to allow you to gain insights into what is bringing the bots to your website


Ensuring bots do not fill out your forms, Google Recaptcha V3 is a fantastic tool that allows for direct control over Google's advanced bot detection system.


Set Up V3 Captcha:

In Google:

1. Go to

2. Click the + in the top right corner

3. Add your new site and select Score based (v3) and follow the prompts to get the keys provided. You will need the site key and the secret key:


In ActiveDEMAND:

Under Administration--Account Settings--Integrations you will now see the additional three fields to add these keys

Add the following three fields to account settings:


For v3, all recaptcha requests returns a score between 0 and 1 (1.0 is very likely a good interaction, 0.0 is very likely a bot). Based on the score, you can take variable action in the context of your site. It is suggested to start with a cutoff of 0.1 and move it up if needed. The recaptcha value is checked on site visits and form submits. If the value is below the cutoff value then the visit/form submit is dropped. 


When logged into Google's recaptcha admin panel, you will also be able to see all the requests and score distribution:



For Multi-tenant environments:

Managing Multiple Accounts (Multi-tenant),

If you are using multi-account websites and thus using a generic tracking script you will need to manually embed the site key. You can do this by adding the following code to the head script of the page:


window.recaptcha_v3_key = '<recaptcha v3 site key>';
