If you are using any form plugin which uses Google ReCatcha Vs 3 no longer uses the usual challenge option.

Googles recaptcha V3 no longer requests people to click on the checkbox to say they are not a robot or ask other quiz type c=questions.
There is no challenge questions to answer. Instead Google analyses  the entire site to help in their algorithm of suspicious activities.
In doing this a Privacy Terms badge will appear on the bottom right hand corner on every page of your site.
If you use a plugin like Contact Form 7 this now uses Googles ReCaptcha ver 3 which includes an annoying badge on every page.
The Elementor plugin currently uses Captcha version 2 at the time of writing this post.

How do you get rid of the Badge

You can use the following css and place this code in your style sheet which works for me.

.grecaptcha-badge{
    visibility: collapse !important;  

}

You need to place on the form the following HTML code:-

This site is protected by reCAPTCHA and the Google     <a href=”https://policies.google.com/privacy”>Privacy Policy</a> and     <a href=”https://policies.google.com/terms”>Terms of Service</a> apply.

 

Google may change it’s policy as the Badge on each page is no guarantee that Google is protecting every page plus the Badge loading on every page just adds another task not required.
