Thank you for this tutorial, Vishwajeet.
I’ve been thinking about installing WPforms on my site and it’s good to know I can set up captcha protection if I want.
Spammers today are just terrible.

HI Vishwajeet

This is very helpful.

I tried adding captcha to some squeeze pages but it was so complicated I gave up.

I guess to use this method, though, the squeeze page would have to be a WP page, right?

So if I was using Instabuilder or some such third party page builder, it would not work?

Thanks for the info.
