Google recaptcha and the GDPR

Post by psaldari » Wed Jul 17, 2019 9:58 am

Hello,
anyone knows if the google recaptcha violate the GDPR?
In my site I don't collect any data (no cookies) and my dubt is: recaptcha send dato to google and it store this data?

There is other (free) alternatives to google recapcha?

All the best
Paolo

I'm sorry, I do not know the answer to this.
But if this is true then I am sure you will find it somewhere on the Internet.

I am not aware of any alternatives that are free.

On my search I find the HoneyPot method*, is it possible to integrate it on my project?

* insert an invisible field to the human visitor but visible to the bot, if the bot fill this field the email cannot be sent

You can use the HTML object or Page HTML to add custom code to the page.

Unfortunately, I cannot help you with the implementation of third party scripts because for me that may also take a lot of time.

OK, I can understand it, thank you anyway.

I add a editbox without border and trasparent. I add a condition: if not empty>disable>submit

Do you think it can work like a honeypot trap?

No, I do not think that will work.
Spammers can easily disable JavaScript to by pass this
