How to configure Google reCAPTCHA

The latest version of Google reCAPTCHA is the more user friendly and less annoying to use. So we recommend you to use this version. Here are the steps for you to proceed-

  1. Log in here using your Google Account https://www.google.com/recaptcha/
  2. It should immediately take you to the admin page. If not, click here https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin/
  3. Now fill up the form with a name and your domain name. Please remember, you do not need to register your sub domain. The registration for the parent domain will work for the subdomains as well. That means you do not need to make separate entries for docs.wedevs.com, demo.wedevs.com etc. Just creating a key for wedevs.com will work for all the subdomains.
  4. You will have the public and private keys right after submitting the form.
