  • SAP SuccessFactors uses the Google-provided ReCAPTCHA
  • As Google ReCAPTCHA doesn’t work in China, this feature isn’t supported for Chinese customers nor for candidates applying from China.
  • It's not possible to disable CAPTCHA on Email Job to Friend - it is a universal feature due to security implications of having a text field available when sending Email Job to Friend.
