After enabling Google Recaptcha for admin login, I am now locked from admin panel due to this error "The response parameter is missing."

How can I disable this? Please help!

You can change your admin username and password. Run the below command in your Magento root folder after editing the user and password

sudo php bin/magento admin:user:create --admin-user="admin" --admin-password="Admin@123" --admin-email="[email protected]" --admin-firstname="Admin" --admin-lastname="Admin"
sudo php bin/magento cache:clean
sudo chmod -R 777 var pub

This is Magento core Google Recaptcha.

go to the database and hit the below query then flush the cache and check backend captcha is disabled.

UPDATE `core_config_data` SET `value` = '0' WHERE `core_config_data`.`path` = 'msp_securitysuite_recaptcha/backend/enabled'; 

you need to disabled third-party extension configuration then check in the system.xml file what is the exact path then based on configuration path update value in database 1 to 0
