  • Is there an easy way to test if reCAPTCHA v3 is working correctly and where could we see the score reported from reCAPTCHA v3 if it was implemented correctly?

  • Exactly the same question I have. I doubt whether it is implemented correctly. Google says it needs to be implemented in both user and the server sides.

    Does it work in the backend automatically???

    Seeing comments and seeing (deficient) documentation in Google about recaptcha v3, I think the implementation in CF7 is wrong.

    Via javascript, v3 sends a token that *does not mean is a human or not*, simply means that recaptcha works correctly.

    We need this token in server side validation with php, via ajax or a hidden input, to check the response. We receive the response.score property, with values between 0 and 1, where 0 means is a bot, 1 is a human, and 0.5 I don’t know XD.

    It is shameful to do this with a plugin with millions of intallations!

    Yea it doesn’t work. I have several clients complaining about spam issues and the captcha not showing up now…

    Fix would be nice! Thanks!

    Hi guys, i think it start working i haven’t received any complaints regarding the spam mails.
    Guys first create the reCAPTCHA API keys in v3 from your google account and use the same site key and secret key in the Integrations part of Contact form. Google will take 3-4 days to collect the data and then its will display the graph in “Manage your reCAPTCHA API keys”.

    I don’t know too much about v3.. but from what I gathered you need to add the client side integration snippets to your header in order for it to know if bots are scanning your website to submit false form requests.

    I added the client side scripts to mine and re-enabled v3. We’ll see what happens.

    One thing to note.. I now have a “protected by recaptcha” icon in the bottom right corner of my website. I assume now it is working.

    The implementation of V3 now causes my CF7 forms to have false positives.

    the same is occurring for me however as a user. When using chrome, have no issue. However issue when using firefox/seamonkey/palemoon or any forks.

    blank no text entry nor picture seletionn (cars, stop sign , etcc)
    “Sorry, something went wrong. Please try reloading the pag”

    Same issue here. I see the icon “protected by recaptch” but I have no way to know whether it’s working or not.
