How to install Google reCAPTCHA in your sign-up form.
You need to have a Google account to use Google reCAPTCHA. If you don’t have one, sign up for one: it’s free.
Go to http://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin ➜ Log into your Google account and click Next. Once logged in, you will be redirected to this page (Image Below). And you will have to fill in the details. (reCAPTCHA v2 and v3 both are compatible with Edwiser Bridge’s login/registration page.)
Please check the screengrab below.
Upon submission, you will receive a confirmation message. Along with site and secret keys.
Now go to WordPress Admin Dashboard ➜ Edwiser Bridge Settings ➜ General Tab ➜ Google reCAPTCHA settings ➜ Enable reCAPTCHA – Tick the checkbox ➜ Select the version type you wish to use ➜ Copy and paste the secret key and site key ➜ Based on your site requirements you may use this function on the Registration page and on the Login page as well. ➜ Click on SAVE.
Difference between reCAPTCHA v2 & v3
reCAPTCHA v2 verifies if an interaction is legitimate with the “I am not a robot” checkbox and invisible reCAPTCHA badge challenges.
reCAPTCHA v3 verifies requests with a score and gives you the ability to take action in the context of your site.
