How to insert a Google reCAPTCHA on your website

One of the big problems we face on our websites is the use of forms by “bots” in order to spread “spams” and that ends up causing a super use of our server resources, such as CPU and memory.

Two-step verification with php and Google Authenticator

A security feature in system authentication that has become quite popular recently is 2-step verification.

In addition, another interesting and widely used feature in JavaScript is the possibility of creating elements (inputs, divs, links or any other type of HTML component) dynamically (also through events).
