kaposvaruniversity created the topic: Captcha how important


I'm interested your opinion: if a form has a lot of labels (text elements, select lists) all required, is captcha important? So could I use capthca in the form against spams and robots? Or because of the required labels robots can't fill in and send the form, in this case I not must activate captcha.

Thanks for your answer!

Even though required fields can stop some bots, I suggest that you use Captcha as well.

Bots can fill in the form required fields automatically, but if you are using some special validations in sense that some specific value or value in specific format has to be entered in a field that can help to stop the spam.

In every case, I suggest that you use Captcha as well, because you can never be to careful and bots can bypass the validations.
