Previously, our sign-up system allowed clients to sign up without verifying an email address or going through a captcha check, which could allow malicious agents to create limitless free accounts that end up draining resources on the platform. We needed to add better safeguards to ensure new (free) accounts were not being created en masse.
To do this, we have implemented reCAPTCHA for account sign-up on DrChrono Web. If the user taps on the “Access Your Account” button without clicking the reCAPTCHA, an error will be shown.
If the user clicks on the “I’m not a Robot” reCAPTCHA, they can now complete the account creation.
