Adding CAPTCHA to Ionic with NodeJS Middleware

By Josh Morony

When I built the Elite Ionic course, I built it as a PWA using Ionic. Anybody who signs up for the course can log in to the application and browse through the various modules. When people create accounts, they need passwords, and when passwords are involved they will inevitably be forgotten at some point.

For convenience, I added a public-facing “Forgot Password” feature to the course application that would send a password reset email to the registered user’s email address. This mostly works fine, but I did get an email from a user who mentioned that they were occasionally getting password reset emails that they did not trigger.
