Register with Google to use reCAPTCHA

On the Settings page, you must specify the following:

  • The reCAPTCHA site key and secret key were obtained by registering for the reCAPTCHA service.
  • The threshold for treating a subscription attempt as spam.

Subscribe pages

Once everything is set up, you can see your account’s “Subscribe page” the reCAPTCHA icon. Note that this may take some time to appear.
