3. Usage for reCaptcha v2 checkbox

3.1 In Blade view

You can add Google reCaptcha v2 validation to your site by simply calling {{ Recaptcha::addClient() }}

Note: Recaptcha alias is automatically registered, so you do not need to add it in the config/app.php

The following input will be automatically added to your view and being validated in the validation logic

<textarea id="g-recaptcha-response" name="g-recaptcha-response" class="g-recaptcha-response"></textarea>

You can also display the validation result to the view as follows (use CSS styling to highlight the validation error):

<div class="form-group{{ $errors->has('g-recaptcha-response') ? ' has-error' : '' }}">
    <div class="col-md-12">
        {{ Recaptcha::addClient() }}
        @if ($errors->has('g-recaptcha-response'))
            <span class="help-block">
                <strong>{{ $errors->first('g-recaptcha-response') }}</strong>

3.2 In validation logic

You can use a new custom validation rule recaptcha against the attribute g-recaptcha-response, for example:

    'g-recaptcha-response' => 'required|recaptcha'
], [
    'g-recaptcha-response.recaptcha' => 'Please make sure you are not a robot',
    'g-recaptcha-response.required' => 'Re-captcha field is required'

4. Usage for reCaptcha v3

4.1 In Blade view

Firstly, you need to call addClient3Html() method on Recaptcha facade, for example:

{{ Recaptcha::addClient3Html('recaptcha3') }}

This call will create a hidden input as follows:

<input type="hidden" name="recaptcha3" id="recaptcha3">

You can display the validation error by adding the following snippet:

@if ($errors->has('recaptcha3'))
    <span class="help-block">
        <strong>{{ $errors->first('recaptcha3') }}</strong>

Secondly, you need to call addClient3Js() method on Recaptcha facade, for example:

{{ Recaptcha::addClient3Js('<action_name>', 'recaptcha3') }} 

This call will create a Javascript block as follows:

    grecaptcha.ready(function() {
        grecaptcha.execute('<SITE-KEY>', {action: '<action_name>'})
                  .then(function (token) {
                    if (token) {
                        document.getElementById('recaptcha3').value = token;

4.2 In Validation logic

You can use a new custom validation rule recaptcha_v3 against the attribute recaptcha3, for example:

    'recaptcha3' => 'recaptcha_v3'
], ['recaptcha_v3' => 'You are not a human']);


  • You can give an arbitrary name for action_name as long as it contains only a-z, A-Z and _
  • Also for attribute name, you can use an arbitrary string other than recaptcha3
