adds bs spam to wp admin panel, doesn't work at all
By , for WP 4.5.3

yet another plugin that insists on adding extra top-level bs that doesn't have anything to do with the plugin spam marketing their crap. unacceptable.

add on top of this, the plugin doesn't even work - no captcha's appearing on any of the specified forms.

Your annoying notifications sucks!
Deleting plugin!

Very unsecure!!!
By , for WP 4.3.1

Don't use this plugin since it is very unsecure!!!

The only check this plugin has, is the HTML check required="required".
You can easily remove this part from the HTML using an inspecter, which allows anyone to submit the form successful.

How can this developer forget any backend check?!?

No recapcha without purchase

Better plugins out there that don't cost an annual subscription. Recapcha is a free service and shouldn't be charged for use.

Failed to prevent 800 login attempts in 5 min
By , for WP 4.3.1

Woke up this morning to emails alerting me there had been 20 login attempts from 40 IP addresses in five minutes - all with Captcha by BestWebSoft installed. Either a lot of people were doing a lot of 1 + 1 math problems in a very short amount of time, or this plugin was not successful in ensuring each login attempt is from a human being. I've since switched to a Captcha plugin that uses images.

Hackers breach this like it's not there.

Sorry peoples, had several of my sites hacked in, even with this plugin installed. You 5 star raters haven't waited long enough to review. It may block amateurs, but the pros laugh at this. Shame

Not worth the purchase price. You can only use it on one site.
