Google reCAPTCHA is both powerful and elegant – it should be on all WordPress sites.


With Shield plugin, you have access to Google reCAPTCHA for both WordPress login and comments. It’ll prevent spam, and brute-force bot login attempts.


Additionally, with Shield Pro, you now have the ability to choose Google reCAPTCHA theme/style (including the new Invisible reCAPTCHA). 


Important: Before you can make full use of this option, you will have to register for Google reCAPTCHA keys and enable reCAPTCHA for use across Shield. To learn how to do that, follow the steps outlined in this article

What reCAPTCHA styles are available?

With this option, you can decide how Google reCAPTCHA will be displayed on the login screen. There are 3 available styles: "light theme", "dark theme" and "invisible recaptcha".

If you set "default" theme for all reCAPTCHA features, it will fallback to the "General" settings - i.e. if you want "dark theme" throughout the plugin, choose "Dark Theme" within "General" and leave "Default" for the all other reCAPTCHA features.
