The Google Apps authentication section allows you to enforce whether or not your Google Account is required to sign in to your Autopilot account.

To configure this feature, select from either of the following options:

  • Optional ( Default ) - All users can sign in with either their Google Account, or with their own email address (which could be a Gmail address) and password (specific to the Autopilot account).

  • Required - All users can only sign in to Autopilot using their Google Account.

Google reCAPTCHA

The Google reCAPTCHA section allows you to incorporate Google’s reCAPTCHA feature into Autopilot’s capture widgets used on your business' site/s as data sources integrated with Autopilot.

To configure Google reCAPTCHA in your Autopilot account:

  1. Register your business' site/s through Google reCAPTCHA, e.g. via its v3 Admin Console.

  2. After the registration process is completed (e.g. on Google reCAPTCHA’s Adding reCAPTCHA to your site page):

    1. Click COPY SITE KEY and paste this into the Site key field in this section of the Autopilot interface.

    2. Click COPY SECRET KEY and paste this into the Autopilot interface’s Secret key field.

Two-step authentication (2FA)

The Two-step authentication (2FA) section allows you to enforce whether or not Autopilot users are required to use two-factor verification (configurable through their Profile settings) to sign in to your Autopilot account.

To configure this feature, select from either of the following options:

  • Optional ( Default ) - All Autopilot users can sign in to Autopilot with or without the need to use two-factor verification.

  • Required - All Autopilot users must use two-factor verification sign in to Autopilot. Two-factor verification is configurable through each Autopilot user’s Profile settings.

Tracking opt-in form

The Tracking opt-in form allows you to enable or disable Autopilot’s user-driven cookie-based tracking feature, which is designed to meet the "General Data Protection Regulation" (GDPR).

The GDPR is a European Union (EU) protection framework that applies to:

  • companies and entities in the EU who handle personal data as a part of their activities, as well as

  • companies and entities outside of the EU who handle the personal data of EU data subjects (individuals residing in the EU).

As part of the GDPR, any software application (like Autopilot) that tracks personal data, must allow the user to opt-in to accepting the software tracking their activities through the web application or browser.

Since Autopilot uses cookies to track personal data, then to meet GDPR requirements, you can enable Autopilot’s tracking opt-in form to appear on your business' site/s.
