Adding to Contact Form 7

Using reCAPTCHA (recommended)


Following this article:

"reCAPTCHA v3 doesn’t need a CAPTCHA widget (the “I’m not a robot” checkbox used in reCAPTCHA v2) to work, so [recaptcha] form-tags are no longer necessary. If [recaptcha] form-tags are found in a form template, Contact Form 7 5.1 or higher ignores them and replaces them with an empty string." 

If you use the version 5.1 and higher, please make sure you use reCAPTCHA V3 also.

Step 1: Get the keys


  • Get the site key and secret key


Step 2: Enter the key pair into the WordPress admin

  • Go to the admin menu Contact > Integration.
  • Find reCAPTCHA panel and click Configure Keys.
  • Copy the site key and secret key into the appropriate fields and save them.



Step 3: Insert reCAPTCHA tag to your form.
