Simple Google reCAPTCHA


Simple Google reCAPTCHA will protect your WordPress! You have choice between default v2 Checkbox and v3 (like invisible reCAPTCHA).

No more spam comments and brute-force attacks against user accounts. Small plugin, only necessary code – no ads or tracking!

Google reCAPTCHA verification will be required only for not logged in users.

User, who newly setup the keys, will see (max for 10 days) emergency reCAPTCHA deactivate link – don’t need FTP access to disable Simple Google reCAPTCHA in case of emergency now.

Simple plugin which simply does what it should. As simple as it is. Pun intended. Works like a charm and is fully compatible with woocommerce.

This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service apply. Google and privacy. That's funny. Yes, we'll keep that 10gb personal data profile private. The one we get from tracking you all day. Plugin works fine but I'll be removing it.

Sorry the plugin is not working. It locks me out of my own wordpress site. Had to rename the folder in order to log in.

Thank you Michal Novák, You should clearly mention to WooCommerce compatibility in the Description and even the Screenshots. I was looking for a reCAPTCHA plugin that support WooCommerce and Google reCAPTCHA v3. I luckily found the clue in the changelog, ha! Since Google reCAPTCHA v3 is invisible, so I used v2 to test at first and then enabled v3. But whether I checked "Hide reCAPTCHA v3 badge" or not, it displayed nothing. I suppose it's really working on background, lol. This is truly a perfect plugin!
