Really basic captcha without images
By , for WP 4.1

tha captcha is really really basic, look at the screenshhot

Tested on Czech sites, not working
By , for WP 4.0.1

Bots can contribute cheerfully through the forms with CAPTCHA, as if there was not. Free variant can't recommend, I haven't tried PRO.

And I must say that at first glance, everything worked, plugin defended the form for several weeks, but then spam started to appear again.

Destroyed homepage widgets

This plugin removed all of my homepage widgets and then didn't even work on the custom form I use with my site

> WARNING
By , for WP 4.0

Change your site to a new domain and you will get a warning which isn't an easy fix.

I even repaid the license fee, deleted the plug-in, re-activated it, re entered my license and I still have an illegal status message.

What is more annoying than the $20 loss (it is a loss), is the intentionally convoluted "chinglish" work-arounds.

I am going to deactivate this plugin and use what WordPress provides.

My advice is to not waste your time and money on this third party plugin.

Far from Bullet-proof
By ,

I still got 10-15 fake-user subscriptions per day, even with this plugin enabled. Also the Nag-Screen is really annoying. Everytime you login to dashboard there is an advertisement jumbotron. Really annoying though. I switched to Bad behavior, to see what this plugin is capable of

Doesn't work
By , for WP 4.0

Think this will simplify your spam issues? It won't. I still get 100 spams in my spam queue a day with this activated. Does not work for whatever reason. I gave it two weeks trial — feels like I got even more spam those weeks than before. Don't install it.

Calculation Doesn't Work
By , for WP 3.9.1

the plugin were asking "2 x ? = 12" I entered 3 and it let me register. Again I tried it asked me "4 + ? = 10" I entered 2 and it also let me register.

So the thing is clear here, that this plugin is not doing any calculation or validation. Please check

Unfortunately cracked by bots
By , for WP 3.8.1

Unfortunately this plugin is no longer bot secure

Here are some bot/spam registrations

Two to three registrations each day. I now have converted to a captcha using slightly distorted pictures all spam registrations have stopped.

For this plugin to remain useful, the text need to be replaced by pictures.

I can nolonger recommend this plugin

Useless 100% out dated
By , for WP 3.8.1

Its rubbish, been using it over 6 months but recently seems plugin doesn't work at all , Using Sweet Captcha now and i am happy with that .. OH and they keep pushing you to buy pro version

Increased bot activity
By , for WP 3.8

I dont know why so many people find this a good solution. I have had a really bad experience with this. The registration bots began to bombard the site more than they used to before I activated this plugin. Once i de-activated it the registration bots have ceased, probably because I am using a more effective re-catpcha.
