Are you looking for a way to add picture password (image captcha’s) for your google form? Here is a simple workaround that will let you protect your google form with picture passwords.
You can easily create a Google form that is visible to everyone in the group. But to make it more secure and to prevent the spam bots from automatically filling the data into the form, you may wish to password protect your form. In my previous post, I have explained about how to password protect your google form. Now to make it even more secure, I am going to teach you how to add a picture password to your google form. Read this guide, to know how to do this.
Steps To Add Picture Password To Your Google Form:
The concept is simple: We are going to split the form into three sections and add a multiple choice question with images. The user needs to select the right image in order to get into the form.
Step 1: To get started, first open up your Google Form from your browser.
Step 2: Create three sections by clicking on the “Add Section” icon as shown in the below screenshot.
- Section 1: The picture password
- Section 2: The error message
- Section 3: The actual form
Step 3: Add a multiple choice question to section 1 by clicking on the “Add Question” icon and choose the type as “Multiple Choice” from the drop down.
Step 4: Now set up the question and make it as a required one and now in the options section add different images to every option. In this tutorial, I am adding four options with four images.
Step 5: You can add as many options as you wish by clicking on “Add option”.
Step 6: Now enable “Go to section based answer” from “Show” icon which will be located at the bottom right corner of the section. Also, enable “shuffle option order” to shuffle the options on each visit.
Step 7: Setup “go to section 2” for all the incorrect options from the drop down and select “go to section 3” for the correct option.
Step 8: Now in section 2, add the error message. Also you have to set “go to section 1” to prevent the user with incorrect answers from entering to the actual form.
That’s it. You have successfully added the picture password to your google form. From now onwards whenever your form is accessed, the user must select the right option to enter into the actual form.
