Adobe Commerce 2.3 reached end of support in September 2022.

Google reCAPTCHA

Google reCAPTCHA provides a greater level of security for both the storefront and Admin UI than is available with standard CAPTCHA, and gives you the ability to:

  • Verify when customers create accounts, retrieve passwords, log in to their accounts, or contact your company.
  • Enhance security when Admin users log in.

Google reCAPTCHA reduces potential user error when entering a Captcha code and encourages cart conversion without adding hurdles during checkout.

Install module

The Google reCAPTCHA extension is bundled and installed with Magento Open Source and Adobe Commerce 2.3.x.

Configure reCAPTCHA

Before reCAPTCHA can be configured, ensure that your PHP.ini file includes this setting: allow_url_fopen = 1. See Required PHP Settings.

See Google reCAPTCHA in the Commerce User Guide for configuration options in the Admin and storefront.


The extension supports a command line option for disabling reCAPTCHA. Use this command when you cannot access the Admin UI.
