Captcha for Forms
A Captcha control is needed, especially for those forms that are published to Nintex Live that allow anonymous access.
This will prevent spam form instances.
Thanks for your suggestion Vadim. As we are currently building Universal Forms for Office 365, SharePoint and Nintex Workflow Cloud, we are considering how we move forward with Live Forms with all the Nintex Infrastructure.
We currently support Google reCaptcha in Nintex Forms for Nintex Workflow Cloud which may suit your needs as the platform supports anonymous forms and pushing data to different systems.

My client is using Nintex Forms on-premise but no Captcha supported by Nintex, any recommendation for me?
You could look at using Cognito Forms to replace Nintex Live Forms if you're still using SharePoint on-prem. Cognito forms have the added benefit of being responsive on mobile devices and allow direct access to form submission data. We went that route and it's worked well so far for us. You can also use Cognito with SharePoint Online directly or with Microsoft Flow as well. But as Euan suggests, Nintex has a cloud solution that might meet your needs too if you have the budget for it.

I would like to know if there is any progress on this On Prem as well.
Drew Warren commented
Any word on when this might be coming in the On Prem version of Nintex forms? It is a major requirement as we migrate our farm to SP2016 and want to get rid of our custom .NET webparts and use Nintex forms instead.

Hi, are there any developments regarding this improvement? (other than creating a control ourselves?)
I agree with having something like reCaptcha. We can't use Nintex forms for our external forms because of the lack of spam prevention. We use reCaptcha with custom-coded forms and have to use a data service call to push the form data to SharePoint lists.
Implement Google Recaptcha please: https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/invisible.html

Spam preventing is a standard requirements for any public facing site. Would be appreciated if anyone can let us know when it is included in Nintex Live form.
We have recently pushed some Live forms to our external website and our marketing department hasn't asked for this yet, but it is a standard function on many simple forms that I'm expecting them to ask for soon. If you got out ahead of this request, that would be ideal so when they ask we're ready.

we have several clients who would like to use Nintex Forms / Nintex Live for anonymous form data entry. This is seen as a core requirement by those clients.
I agree. I have an externally available (anonymous auth) website that we want to have sharepoint forms externally available. There needs to be some sort of automatic captcha control. Even if you had a spot to enter the Google Recaptcha details and automatically have it set up.

Thanks for looking into this Daniel.
I think we should have some sort of Captha control that customers can use. This won't prevent them from creating their own if they need it. But would definitely give users the ability to use this functionality out of the box.
Cory Ostroski commented
Both would be great. Where is Nintex on this process?
We would like to see this as an OOTB option as well. We really don't have a specific preference on what is used, as long as it's user friendly and doesn't involve us custom coding something.
