What is reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA is an additional security mechanism designed to protect website forms from attacks by bots / automated scripts.
Depending on the version of reCAPTCHA, the security may request to mark the field that you are not a robot and display the task to be performed to proceed further (reCAPTCHA v2) or the Google script itself assesses whether it is dealing with a bot or not, it is done on the basis of information about the number of visits from a given IP address. In reCAPTCHA v3, if a Google script decides that it can deal with a bot, then it shows a task to solve. reCAPTCHA v3 does not require initial interaction, i.e. field marking - confirmation that you are not a bot.
