How to Set up CAPTCHA on Your Registration Form for a Webinar or Series

Add a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) to your registration process for extra layers of security and data accuracy.

CAPTCHAs add an additional layer of security to your webinar or series registration process. These often simple tests help ensure that real humans are accessing your webinars and events. This process is not only particularly important in making sure the data you’re collecting is accurate, it also reduces the risk of unauthorized access and exploitation of your data. Additionally, a simple CAPTCHA can help ensure that registration access is available to only genuine attendees and not automated bots, which is hugely helpful if your webinar or event has a limited number of registrations available. 

Read on to learn how to set up a CAPTCHA on your registration forms. 

On your webinar landing page, select Custom Registration Fields on the left hand navigation menu.

On this page, you’ll see a new setting called Registration Form Captcha. The setting is defaulted to OFF. Checking the box next to the setting will enable you to use a CAPTCHA on your registration form.

The CAPTCHA may look something like the below images.

One thing to note is that BigMarker cannot control which CAPTCHA questions are presented to registrants. In this example, you’ll see the registrant was asked to identify the images with a bus present.

Once this setting is enabled, the CAPTCHA will work immediately and automatically if you are using Bigmarker.com. If you are using a custom domain to collect registrations through BigMarker, then a CAPTCHA will have to be enabled separately, since it is no longer hosted through the BigMarker domain. 

If this setting needs to be enabled on a custom domain, your BigMarker team will assist in ensuring that the BigMarker CAPTCHA links on the registration form with your Google Enterprise account.
