Adding Custom Captcha Fields

Once you activate the Custom Captcha addon, a new Fancy filed called “Captcha” will be added to the Form Builder.

Custom Captcha Field

Simply drag & drop this field in your form.

By default, it will show random Math questions. However when you click to edit the Captcha form field, it will allow you to choose between the Math option or the Custom Questions option.

Custom Captcha Type

Once you’re done configuring the Captcha field, simply save your form.

Users must answer your Captcha question correctly in order for the form to submit.

You can also add Google’s ReCAPTCHA in WPForms to fight spam if you don’t want to use the Custom Captcha addon.
