You can find Google reCAPTCHA settings at Dashboard > Forums > Tools > Antispam Tab.

@krs,

reCAPTCHA v3 will be available in wpForo 2.0 version,

to hide forum statistics, go to Dashboard > Forums > Settings >Features Tb and disable "Show Forum Statistic" button

you can customize the statistic with CSS coding, just insert the needed CSS Code in Custom CSS Code Field From Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles Tab

@chris any idea when is wpforo 2.0 coming? I am looking to implement reCAPTCHA 3.0 to make the bots harder to register.

Is it possible to implement recaptcha 3.0 via an external plugin?

@chris thanks for the update. Do we have any workaround to control spam with reCaptcha v3?

I am not able to control Spam registrations . I have enabled akismet and recaptca 2 with maximum protection. 

any suggestions?

@krs,

I'm sorry, but wpForo doesn't support reCAPTCHA v3 now.
