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.

Thanks all of you, who are using this plugin, I really appreciate it!

If you write me (on support forum etc.), be patient, please. I work on this plugin in my free time, it’s only my hobby.
