API Keys

Important! Use reCAPTCHA v2 Keys only

Using reCAPTCHA v3 keys may lock you out of your website.

In the API Keys section enter Google reCAPTCHA keys to enable reCAPTCHA for the login area. reCAPTCHA helps prevent bots from crashing a website. They look something like this...

In the General Settings click on the "Register new reCAPTCHA key" button to be directed to the Google page for generating new API keys.

Existing keys will appear in the grey box in the top portion of the screen. To generate new reCAPTCHA keys for the site use the form below this.

  • Label - A name for the reCAPTCHA key used to identify it.
  • Choose the type of reCAPTCHA - Choose one of the options inside reCAPTCHA v2.
  • Domains - Enter the Web address that the reCAPTCHA key is going to be used on.
  • Accept the reCAPTCHA Terms of Service - Check this box.
  • Click the "Register" button.

The Site key and Secret key will then be generated and can be copied and pasted into corresponding fields on the WordPress Dashboard.

Remember to click Save at the bottom of the page.


  • Redirect after logout to URL address - Choose what page opens up for users after the log out.
  • Logout after inactivity time - If a site user doesn't do anything on the site for a defined amount of time they're automatically logged out.
  • Reload browser after logout - If the user has been logged out the plugin will automatically refresh the browser. This can be good for security reasons if a user has stepped away from a computer and forgotten to log out leaving private information on the screen.
