I find the plugin to be very good, with a simple and well-thought-out interface. The support of this plugin is very friendly and responsive for the free version of the plugin; I can only imagine it being even better for the paid version.
This leads me to the reason for deducting one star: the subscription fee is exceptionally high for those who just only want the checkbox functionality without a challenge (equivalent to Invisible reCaptcha v3). While I understand that every service deserves compensation and I assume that this subscription fee is justified, I find it a pity. Sooner or later, a more affordable alternative will inevitably take the lead and replace hCaptcha. It’s all the more regrettable since hCaptcha’s current reputation has already blossomed and is widely recognized as the go-to alternative to reCaptcha, especially due to its commitment to data privacy (in compliance with GDPR). However, with such an expensive paid version, many small freelancers will have to turn to another solution. If it’s not feasible to make the subscriptions more affordable in the future, why not at least offer a pay-per-request monthly fee?
Despite this concern, I’m genuinely grateful to be able to use the free version of hCaptcha and its plugin. Many thanks and best wishes to the entire team! Your service is undeniably of high quality overall!
