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
By , for WP 4.3.1

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.

Doesn't stop spam registrations
By , for WP 4.1.1

We have about 10 spam registrations per day and after installing and activating this plugin, it didn't stop them at all.

Not working
By , for WP 4.1.1

I've been unable to get this plugin to work at all. It is installed on the currently newest WordPress (4.1.1), and activated as i can see it asks me for a captcha verification around my site.. I've enabled it for every way possible for a user to send some input to my site (register/login/comment etc.) but the spambots seem to dont care about this and somehow get through it without ANY problems at all. Today i had to remove 1500+ spam comments AND users from the site again. Last time i did that was around a month ago, also with this plugin installed. I can because of this not recommend the plugin. I've been trying to figure out if theres a way the spambots registers through the site that does not have a captcha verification, but i simply dont know where that should be on my site, as im not using any third party plugins that could allow for this.

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.
