Want to add reCAPTCHA to your Elementor form?
One of the issues that you have to face when creating a form on your website is the bot. Fortunately, the Elementor team realized this. When you create a form on your WordPress website with Elementor, you can add the reCAPTCHA to protect your form from bots.
No, you don’t need to install any additional plugins. Elementor already supports integration with reCAPTCHA. All you need to do is connect your website to reCAPTCHA and add a reCAPTCHA field to your form.
Connecting your website with reCAPTCHA
Before we start, we assume that you have upgraded your free version of Elementor to the Pro version since reCAPTCHA integration is only available on Elementor Pro.
First, visit the reCAPTCHA website and click on the Admin Console button in the top right corner. Sign in with your Google account.
Click the plus button to register for a new website.
Enter the label, select the type of reCAPTCHA, add your domain and accept all reCAPTCHA, then click the SUBMIT button.
A little advice. Since you want to add reCAPTCHA to a form, we suggest you select reCAPTCHA v2 -> “I am not a robot” checkbox. This option requires your visitors to complete verification via a challenge before validating their submission.
After clicking the CREATE button, you will see the site key and the secret key. Copy these keys.
Next, log into your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Elementor -> Settings. Click on the Integrations tab and enter the site key and the secret key in the respective fields. Scroll down and click the Save Changes button.
