Expand Keys in the Adding reCAPTCHA to your site section. You will need both the Site key and Secret key for your admin area.

In your admin area, go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Store Settings and expand how Captcha Settings. In the reCAPTCHA Public Key field, enter your Site key from reCAPTCHA. In the reCAPTCHA Private Key, enter the Secret key from the step above. Click Save.

This will automatically add CAPTCHAs to the default forms of your site, like the Register page.

Note: CAPTCHAs added by the reCAPTCHA integration will not show up on custom forms. For example, if you made a contact form on the Contact Us page, reCAPTCHA will not show up there. You must code these forms with CAPTCHAs manually.
