Support » Plugin: Login No Captcha reCAPTCHA » Disable reCAPTCHA in Checkout page

    Hi,

    Is there a way to disable/remove the reCAPTCHA login on a specific page? For example the Woocommerce checkout page, I do not want customers to have to have to verify they are human as they are about to login to make a purchase.

    This was just changed in v 1.2.1 I believe and now it is showing up on the checkout page.

    Thanks!

    Hi @dresdays — unfortunately, the WooCommerce login and the wp-admin login share the same “back-end” for processing the login, with no good way to distinguish between the two.

    As a result, from the WooCommerce customer login screen you can log in as a full admin user. So, disabling the reCaptcha there would make you just as vulnerable as ever to automated login attacks, even if the reCaptcha remained enabled on the wp-admin login form.

    So, unfortunately, if you really can’t abide customers clicking the reCaptcha, then probably best to chose a different defense-in-depth strategy for securing the admin altogether. Limit Login Attempts is a good start, as is protecting the wp-admin directory with HTTP AUTH.

    Dear Robert Peake

    For us, the reCaptcha is not working on the checkout page, so the customer cannot make a purchase! This is very frustrating.

    How does removing reCaptcha enable someone to login as admin?

    Wouldn’t reCaptcha simply verify that someone is a human (as opposed to a bot)? reCaptcha does not authenticate their username or role on the site, as far as I know.

    The above answer is very confusing to me.

    We have some security plugins protecting us from automated brute force attacks.

    We are thinking we need to remove the reCaptcha because it is not working on the checkout page, so the customer cannot make a purchase.

    If I am reading you correctly, the reCaptcha feature is a function of the WordPress login, not the WooCommerce checkout page. Am I hearing that right?

    Please upgrade to the latest version of the plugin, which now supports WooCommerce.

    Please forgive me if I have posted in the wrong place. I googled, saw a thread that seemed to be the right place and replied.

    Thank you.
