Protecting booking pages with reCAPTCHA
YouCanBook.me protects your booking pages from spam bookings, bots and other abuse using reCAPTCHA.
reCAPTCHA is one of the biggest security measures used for protection against spam from website submission forms. It stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.
YouCanBook.me uses V3 of reCAPTCHA which helps us detect abusive traffic on the booking page while reducing friction for your bookers.
Instead of showing a CAPTCHA challenge, reCAPTCHA v3 returns information to use to help us make a decision about the action being taken on your booking page. If it is determined that your booker is a bot, then the visual challenge will appear.
Turning off CAPTCHA
You can turn off Captcha on your booking form, under Booking form > Questions.
CAPTCHA error when booking
If your bookers report seeing this message when trying to make a booking with you:
This means the booking has been flagged as suspicious by reCAPTCHA. These warnings are determined by looking at your behavioral traits like how quickly you filled the form out, whether there were any spelling mistakes or mis-selections at various points, this all demonstrates that your booker is human.
If you continue to see issues with bookers unable to complete bookings due to this message, you can turn off reCAPTCHA under Booking form > Questions.
