CAPTCHA Security

NOTE: Starting with AspDotNetStorefront version 10.0.14 Google reCAPTCHA is now used for captcha. The old image-based captcha is no longer available. If you were using the old captcha, it will be disabled until the new reCAPTCHA AppConfigs are configured. You will need to get a free account with Google then change the Configuration - Settings for reCAPTCHA in your cart admin.

CAPTCHA stands for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart". These tests are used to ensure that your site is not subjected to automated attacks/spam from bots attempting to register or log in to your site. Customers must enter the text seen in the CAPTCHA image (which computers cannot read) before they can log in:


The CAPTCHA image can be enabled on 3 pages, using the following Settings:


Setting Name Page
SecurityCodeRequiredOnCreateAccount CreateAccount.aspx
SecurityCodeRequiredOnStoreLogin signin.aspx


The CAPTCHA image can be customized according to the requirements/desires of your site, using the following Settings:


Setting Name Description
Captcha.AllowedCharactersRegex This is a regular expression which determines which characters the CAPTCHA image will contain. Do not change this if you are not familiar with regular expressions!
Captcha.CaseSensitive Setting this to true will require customers to properly match the case shown in the CAPTCHA image. Setting this to false does NOT make the CAPTCHA image not use caps in the image, it simply ignores the case for the customer entry. Disabling caps entirely would require editing the Captcha.AllowedCharactersRegex AppConfig.
Captcha.MaxAsciiValue Do not change this unless you know what you are doing!
Captcha.NumberOfCharacters Specifies the number of characters the CAPTCHA image will contain.
