<referenceContainer name="form.additional.info">
            <block class="Magento\Captcha\Block\Captcha" name="captcha" after="-" cacheable="false">
                <action method="setFormId">
                    <argument name="formId" xsi:type="string">user_login</argument>

                <action method="setImgHeight">

        <referenceBlock name="head.components">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Js\Components" name="captcha_page_head_components" template="Magento_Captcha::js/components.phtml"/>

  • No magento not providing inbuilt captcha for product review form. You can see config at stores/config/customers/customer config in admin panel Nov 26, 2016 at 6:32
  • You need to see how it works Nov 26, 2016 at 6:32

To use google reCaptch : Go to Admin -> Store -> Configuration -> Security Tab -> Google reCaptcha -> Frontend -> Enabled = Yes

Use in Review = select Yes

Add getChildHtml('form.additional.info') ?> in your theme's Magento_Review /templates/form.phtml file.


To add google reCaptcha in the product review form please check the following steps:

  • Step 1: Go to Admin > Stores > Settings > Configuration > Security Tab > Google reCaptcha Storefront
  • Step 2: Fill out the section of reCAPTCHA type(s) as per your requirement, you can check about this in detail from https://docs.magento.com/user-guide/stores/security-google-recaptcha.html
  • Step 3: From Storefront section, uncheck the Use system value checkbox for Enable for Product Review location field and set it to the reCAPTCHA type that you have configured in the last step.
  • Step 4: After Completion, Save Config and Check.
  • Magento 2 have added 'recaptcha' block in 'product.review.form.fields.before' container of product review form's block and it's called from \vendor\magento\module-review\view\frontend\templates\form.phtml file as 'getChildHtml('form_fields_before') ?>'
