How this plugin helpful to me?

Previously we need to manually put the shortcode of recaptcha in contact form 7. But in recent update of contact form 7 they are using google recaptcha version 3 and you can see the google recaptcha badge on bottom right corner of every page. So by using this plugin you can handle the visibility of this badge.

Does this work without Contact form 7?

No, it will not work.

Does this support custom post type?

Yes, it will support all custom post type with public visiblity.

Does this suppot archives pages?

Yes, it does have option to control on archive and single page separately.

Does this support recaptcha v2?

No, it is will only work with recaptcha v3.

It really depends on what you want to achieve. You want to hide the badge? Yeah fine, this plugin works. Problem is, the ReCaptcha script is still working in the background, slowing down your website, collecting users’ info (thus infringing GDPR), etc. So as in “Disable” ReCaptcha, no. It doesn’t work.

I decide what will be on my site not Google. The ugly Recaptcha – CF7 not only slows down your site but it looks very ugly too. Thanks to this plugin I can limit this to pages with contact form.
