How to use Protection Locations/Forms option

"Protection Locations" option is a part of the Login Guard module. With this option, you have the opportunity to choose the forms for which bot protection measures will be deployed.

Important: Before you choose the forms, ensure that Bot Protection is enabled.

You can choose the following forms:

  • Login form
  • Registration form
  • Lost password form
  • Checkout (WooCommerce)

Example forms

Login form

Registration form

Note: If you use 3rd party forms, such as WooCommerce, and you have Bot Protection enabled, it can happen that "I'm a human" checkbox doesn't display on the user login page

To avoid this, best is to use our Antibot Detection Engine. They're the newer, better way to protect the forms.

This completely removes the need for login form CAPTCHAs, and Shield’s own GASP “I’m a human” checkbox. We’re passively testing a visitor’s status (no direct interaction required from the visitor), and we build their Bot Score and allow or deny the request.
