Provides hCaptcha integration for TYPO3 EXT:form.

hCaptcha is a free to use alternative to Google reCaptcha with a bigger focus on privacy. It supports initiatives like PrivacyPass.

For more information, see the hCaptcha website.

Additionally, hCaptcha provides earnings for solved captchas - that can be donated to the Wikimedia foundation automatically (which is the case for the default settings of this extension).

Quick Setup

hCaptcha is configured with a default key to make the setup as easy as possible. It is recommended to create a custom account for your site with hCaptcha and add your own keys.

  • Install the extension and activate it
  • Include the static template in TypoScript
  • Add a hCaptcha element to a form

TypoScript Constants

Set the following constants if you are using your own account:

plugin.tx_hcaptcha {
  settings {
    publicKey = <your-public-key>
    privateKey = <your-private-key>

Environment variables

As an alternative to the TypoScript configuration, you can also use environment variables:


Content Security Policy

Make sure to inform your users of your usage of hCaptcha and what that means - especially if you are using the invisible Enterprise version.
