Rollback to Version 5.0.5

Was surprised at how poorly the upgrade did… just rolled back to Version 5.0.5 and the checkbox / I’m not a robot is back.

Can’t quite understand why the upgrade was done?

I’m leaving the 5 star rating for 5.0.5. With the upgrade, I was flooded with junk.

Good plugin (read if you get spam after update)

After serving me well for years, today I updated the plugin to version 5.1, which requires version 3 of reCAPTCHA, yet silently fails (you just start getting tons of spam) if you don’t have the new v3 API keys.

My problem was that I had forgotten I was even using reCAPTCHA, so I ignored the generic verbiage (yes, there are instructions and a FAQ), and I was just surprised and a bit suspicious after getting tons of spam after the update. Because of the spam wave I thought the plugin had been hacked.

Alas, the plugin does not show you any warnings about you still having the old reCAPTCHA v2 setup enabled, it just silently fails and you start getting tons of spam. I think the author could address this, because as the sudden flow of one-star ratings show, this is not clear. The “instructions” are there, sure, but they are generic. As part of the plugin upgrade, I think there should be a specific warning, reminding you that you were actually using reCAPTCHA, and that it’s time to go to and get new v3 API keys. And it should show this warning whenever you open your admin controls, to remind you that you are still using legacy settings.

The plugin that sabotaged itself

This was a brilliant plugin that my company had been using on dozens of sites for many years without any issues at all. Then the developer pushed a devastating update that broke spam filtering for everybody. It actually deleted our reCAPTCHA v2 keys from the database and left every site open to attack by default. If you weren’t paying close attention, you wouldn’t have even known to upgrade to v3 keys at all.

Even after you upgrade to v3, most of our sites experienced massive amounts of spam getting through, with the added kick in the pants of having a Google advertisement prominently displayed in the lower right-hand corner of every page, often overlapping essential website content. This was placed there without notification or consent. It just shows up once you insert v3 keys into the plugin.

The author’s recent comments that reCAPTCHA v3 is a “great masterpiece” and that he would not even consider adding v2 support back in make this latest update an absolute disaster with no hope of moving forward in a positive direction.

In short, this was a great plugin that grew to over 5 million installs for good reason. Then the author sabotaged himself and now we will get to watch its slow miserable decline. Sad to see it go. Hope he gets the message and rights the ship before it’s too late. I’d love to have a reason to update this review to reflect the many positive aspects about this plugin. But in its present state, I cannot recommend it to anybody in good faith.

Here’s another 1 star for Recaptcha v3

Started getting a lot of spam and came to find out that we are now being forced to use Recaptcha v3.

Already uninstalled this ancient plugin from our other sites. This was the last one and today it is gone also.
