The Quiz and Survey Master reCaptcha Addon allows you to set up a reCaptcha for your quizzes and surveys. To protect your quizzes with an industry-standard captcha solution, this is a must-use plugin.
Remember, this addon makes use of Google’s Recaptcha Service, if you are looking to add a captcha inside your quiz/survey, we already have a QSM captcha question type.
reCaptcha is a security measure implemented to prevent the Quiz/Survey from unwanted access to bots/scripts.
It is a free service from Google that helps protect websites from spam and abuse. “CAPTCHA” is a Turing test to tell humans and bots apart.
ⓘ The reCaptcha addon adds a reCaptcha authentication at the end of the quiz. The quiz taker needs to authenticate himself using the checkbox/questions asked by the reCaptcha service.
