I too had some intial problems, but technical support was excellent. Robert went out of his way to help solve the issue with the plugin (which was actually caused by an error on my part). Having used the free plugin for quite a while, I was more than happy to upgrade to Premium, and my site is working perfectly with it. James

Without warning users, so radically change everything (the name of the plugin, its functionality, terms of use) and hope that users will still use your plugin? hardly an adequate solution. I would say that this is an epic fail. I can hardly imagine how many users, admins and developers have mentioned you with an unkind words in these few days. This is the first time I've come across such disrespect for users and blear-eyed decisions, even for the sake of money.
Januari 24, 2022
Normally I don't post these kind of reviews, but this needs to be said: 1. Unprofessional transition With such a widely used plugin used on third party components, it should have been communicated much more clearly, shouting even with admin area banners (not just release notes) until clicked away, that the premium version would break functionality. And, a transition period should have introduced, for at least a month or so, as any professional companies does when things can break in production, giving people time to notice and prepare for the change. 2. 30 dollars a year is way too much for such a small element in a website. 3. A small element such as captcha should not be put in the parent menu, and definitely NOT IN UPPERCASE. Trying to get attention? Best to return it to its former humble position under settings. Commercially, an understandable and smart move, buying the plugin, but poorly and greedy executed. A 30-day transition time, 10 dollars a year, and old menu position would have gotten you way more sympathy credits, and made free users more easily buy it instead of moving to other captcha plugins. Just some feedback. Awaiting your copy paste comment.

With no warning, no message, no pop-up.... not any form of notification they decided to change the plugin. I was already wondering why all my cliënts where complaining of a sudden rise in spam from the contact forms, until I discovered they decided to switch to a premium function. And even worse; all their replies on this topic are with the same lame excuse: "it was a bug and we fixed it". Well, we removed it from all clients immediately and switched over to the build-in reCaptcha from Contact Form 7 and (where needed) we integrated the Google Captcha plugin. Another fine plugin killed...

They removed the CAPTCHA from contact forms. I literally have dozens of websites that I now need to fix because of what they did. I'll never install this CAPTCHA software.
Januari 24, 2022
Instead of creating your own plugin, you buy an existing one and ask money for it. Congrats. And you have the audacity to do it overnight without warning, out of the blue. Please don't copy-paste your standard reply. I understand - it's your business model.
