Recaptcha v2 invisible defaults to tickbox version

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Thank you in advance for any time you might share with me on this matter.

I am currently having an issue whereby I set up a mailing list subscription form, after which I add a v2 invisible reCAPTCHA verification, but I am still presented with the visible "I'm not a robot" tickbox version. The functionality of the reCAPTCHA works, but I don't want the ugly tickbox visible BEFORE a user makes a text entry, which us unavoidable with the tickbox version as is.

reCAPTCHA verification is on (below) and the type is definitely set to invisible (above).


As you can see below, despite having an 'invisible' reCAPTCHA set up, the form defaults to showing the v2 "I'm not a robot" tickbox version.


I have looked into the method of using the form ID and calling the reCAPTCHA functionality manually in the page header/site header as neaded, but then it seems that the form does not recognise that the functionality has been provided manually and continues to show the tickbox version.

It feels to me that using the correct key for a hidden reCAPTCHA via the external API key settings in combination with the verification settings on the form itself in Squarespace should honor the invisible reCAPTCHA functionality and I shouldn't have to do the setup manually. Am I wrong about this?

I cannot share the site URL/preview unfortunately, as it includes sensitive content.

Kind regards,

Same. Lots of insects and no fixing or responsibility. I even have stopped recommending Squarespace to all of us for the last yr or so I applied it on my new program as you can see the demo related to robotic. I truth I recommendation them to get some thing else....
