Leads: Reject Leads That Don’t Use reCAPTCHA

Stop spammers from sending you bogus leads. Reject leads that generate from Web-to-Lead that don’t use reCAPTCHA verification.

Where: This change applies to Salesforce Classic and Lightning Experience in Group, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

How: In Setup, go to the Web-to-Lead Setup page, and look for the Require reCAPTCHA Verification setting. Enabling this setting turns on the Include reCAPTCHA in HTML setting on the Create a Web-to-Lead Form page. Then make sure that the HTML on your website includes the reCAPTCHA code.

In new orgs, Require reCAPTCHA Verification is enabled by default.

Note

Note

If your org already uses reCAPTCHA, manually enable Require reCAPTCHA Verification. After enabling this setting, it’s important that you ensure the code on your website includes the reCAPTCHA validation code. You might need to regenerate your HTML code and update it on your website. If your website doesn’t include the reCAPTCHA code, customers can’t submit leads.
