How to Enable reCAPTCHA in nopCommerce

nopCommerce comes integrated with reCAPTCHA that enables the store admin to enable CAPTCHA for a list of specific pages in order to prevent spam on the website.

Before we go further into this tutorial, let talk about reCAPTCHA.

What is reCAPTCHA?
reCAPTCHA is a free service to protect your website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site. It does this while letting your valid users pass through with ease.
