Supported Forms

You can currently enable the reCAPTCHA on the following forms:

Getting Started

Choose which forms you want it to show on, and set the theme to either dark or light.

A new reCAPTCHA WooCommerce field will then be displayed on your checkout, and other selected forms to protect them from spam!


The language for the WooCommerce reCAPTCHA will be automatically set based on your sites default language.

I tried a few other recaptcha plugins before coming back to this one. It's stupid simple. Paste keys, check boxes where you want it to show up. Done. All settings are on one screen, so there's no tabbing around looking for for hidden options. Thanks for making such an awesome free plugin available to us all!

I installed it and it works right away with easy single page settings. If you need more, use another plugin from the same author called cloudflare Turnstile ! Thank you so much !

Simple plugin that just works. I had been paying for the "official" woocommece re-captcha plugin on a couple of sites but realised recently that it had stopped working for some reason. Installed this instead and bang it works. Thank you

It is after midnight and I just discovered that there had been over 1800 fake orders placed in the last two hours in our online shop. We are no Amazon so this kind of volume is quite harmful to our site's server stability. The existing minimum captcha function is obviously not working. I tried immediately a most installed ReCaptcha plugin and every useable function has to be in their paid "Pro version". It cannot even switch to Google ReCaptcha version2. So I install this one. It works immediately after pasting in our site key and secret, and a couple of checked boxes. The spammer has been immediately stopped. A very big thank you!

I had some problems with this plugin initially but, after quite a bit of exploring, discover that it was Wordfence's recaptcha settings that were causing it to block access on my login page (I could never get to the 2FA panel). Wordfence's own WooCommerce Recaptcha has never worked for me (though I like everything else about the plugin/service) and I'd forgotten that I had left the settings ON. Once I turned it off and reinstalled ReCaptcha for WooCommerce, it worked perfectly and was simplicity itself to setup.
