• LazyCaptcha is a small and lazy plugin to prevent bots from spamming your comments.
  • It generates a random image with an easy arithmetic task and checks if the result is correct after the comment is trasmitted.
  • It stores the tasks and results in the WordPress database and deletes them after use or two times a day using a wp-cron job.
  • It works only on your local site, does not store any external data and therefore is GDPR (german: DSGVO) compliant
  • It works perfectly on my sites, so I decided to publish it for others on


LazyCaptcha comes in german and english. Feel free to translate it to other languages and send me the translation
so I can include it into the translation repository

  1. Install via the WordPress plugin admin dialog (search for LazyCaptcha)


Where can I setup LazyCaptcha?

No where, LazyCaptcha comes without any settings. It is just as it is. If you want to change the layout you can customize the css classes in wplc.css

This is a great little plugin, the best captcha around. Amazingly it works, it's cute and it doesn't slow down your site even a bit. I've tested it. Thank you. Dieses kleine Plugin ist einfach ausgezeichnet, ich muß denm Autor danken und Anerkennung zollen, weil sein Werk echt toll ist.
