How To Move The reCAPTCHA v3 badge to the left side

Is the Google reCAPTCHA v3 badge overlapping content in the bottom right corner of your WordPress website? Let’s move the badge to the left side with some custom CSS! 


Google reCAPTCHA v3 badge to the right

The reCAPTCHA badge is right aligned by default and there are no design options in the Google settings.

Use the CSS snippet below to make the reCAPTCHA badge left aligned.

When you add reCAPTCHA v3 spam protection to your website, you are left with no design options at all. While Google lets you hide the reCAPTCHA badge with custom CSS, the badge will still display on all pages that contains reCAPTCHA v3 protected forms. And there are no guidelines from Google on how to move the badge to the left.

But the good news is that there is a vibrant developer community that provides a solution! The user Sumith posted the neat CSS snippet below on Stack Overflow and it works perfect.

Move the reCAPTCHA badge to the left, step by step

This fix works for all WordPress themes.

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Go to Appearance » Customize
  3. Click Additional CSS and paste the snippet below:
     /* Move reCAPTCHA v3 badge to the left */
     .grecaptcha-badge {
      width: 70px !important;
      overflow: hidden !important;
      transition: all 0.3s ease !important;
      left: 4px !important;
    .grecaptcha-badge:hover {
      width: 256px !important;
  4. Save and preview in frontend.
  5. Clear your browser cache and website cache if the badge isn’t left-aligned.

If the badge is overlapping content on the bottom left side, you can move the badge higher up on the page.

That’s a wrap!
