Didn't work at all on my website!

And also wasn't able to delete my account on their website.

удобная капча

использую для всех форм, как для входа в админку, так и в коментариях - вполне довольна результатом, не вешает и не тормозит сайт.

Inputs hidden code, adds search bar and slows down performance dramatically
By , for WP 4.0

There is a hidden code they use to monetize through errnio.
This adds a second search bar on the screen at mobile phones and slows down performance of the site dramatically.
It was never mentioned on terms and conditions.

Hidden search bar features
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin contains the following line in sweetcaptcha.php:

wp_enqueue_script('sweetcaptcha-csrf', '//'.SWEETCAPTCHA_SITE_URL.'/api/v2/apps/csrf/'.$app_id, array(), $ver, true);

which loads an external JS file that adds a revenue raising search bar to your website when displayed on mobile devices.

The search bar appears under the address bar in mobile safari and contains the words "Search Web". If used, your search is routed through http://www.errnio.com and http://www.trovi.com

I don't believe this is mentioned anywhere in the documentation for the plugin, and I wouldn't have installed it if i knew it was hijacking searches to raise money.

Doesn't work, just get adds

Someone should get this off WordPress plugin list.

Solved my life problems!
By , for WP 3.9.2

I used to use Wpspam shield, akismet, and many other so called best anti-spam plugins, some of them didn't even work, the others were hardware consuming or didn't work properly, I've reach a part where I saw myself using like 4 antispam plugins at once that weren't even preventing spam, some of othe ones I tried were even blocking normal users from posting comments. Then I found Sweet captcha, thx to Sweet Captcha I was able to get rid of all the garbage. It works like a charm and is as simple as drawing a circle.

Best captcha plugin there is
By , for WP 3.9.2

I use this plugin on all of my websites. It works great.

Just in case their server goes down, though, don't put it on your login form.

Get it - now

This little plugin is best thing I have found to make my WP admin easy instead of a pain. It completely stopped the user registration spam, the comment spam, and attacks on my admin login. It has literally saved me one hundred hours over the last 2-3 months.

Yes its a little funky in its native design, but its free and it f###ing works.

Fun and effective
By ,

It's a fun and effective captcha, blocking all bot/spam comments 100%.
Giving 4 stars because lately there has been downtime of the service. This is not a self-contained plugin and it requires connectivity to the remote server to function.

Annoying
By , for WP 3.5.2

I decided to try other plugins when this one put up an annoying message on the top of admin pages saying setup was not complete. Also it required you to register.
