    So, like everyone else I am getting this error message with the introduction of reCaptcha v3 in Contact Form 7:

    “There was an error trying to send your message. Please try again later.”

    I have tried the suggested solutions here, but none of them work.

    Also, I have read many reports that the spam has increased since bots can disable JavaScript and circumvent some of the spam protection.

    Furthermore, the reCaptcha image AND code is now on every page.

    I am specifically NOT loading Contact Form 7 code on any other page than my contact form page. I know that reCaptcha analysis user behavior throughout the whole site, but I do not under any circumstance want to add additional JavaScript to all other pages just to have a simple contact form.

    This will affect both the performance of the site, but also the sites privacy policy since users are now being monitored by reCaptcha (Google).

    Unfortunately, this means goodbye to Contact Form 7 for all my sites and client sites – at least until we can get reCaptcha 2 back as an option.

    You might try Contact Form 7 – reCaptcha v2. Once installed and configured it offers the same reCaptcha functionality you are used to in previous versions of Contact Form 7.

    If you delete reCAPTACHA prepare for a TON of spam!!!

    I switched to another form solution – SO happy!
