To make the default Joomla forms more secure, and safe from spammers, you can add a captcha to your Joomla site. This tutorial shows you how to do just that.

  • First of go to Google recaptcha, and get your key's there. They must be private and public. Signing up for a key is very easy. Just add a name, and the url's the captcha will be used for and you will get your keys. You can use recaptcha 2 or invisible captcha. Joomla supports both.
  • Then go to your plugins, and search for captcha, and enable the plugin you want. the recaptcha, or the invisibel one.
