Google reCAPTCHA is a popular service providing anti-abuse security to protect your site. For example, A2 Optimized for WordPress utilizes the reCAPTCHA feature as an additional layer of security for your site. To integrate Google reCAPTCHA in an application, the app or web domain is registered with Google’s reCAPTCHA service. After the domain is registered, Google provides reCAPTCHA keys.
