Services_ReCaptcha is a PHP5 interface to the two services offered by reCAPTCHA: reCAPTCHA and reCAPTCHA Mailhide.

reCAPTCHA Mailhide helps you protect your inbox by asking people to solve a reCAPTCHA before they can view your email address. The reCAPTCHA can only be solved by humans, so this stops spammers from gaining access to your email address through automated programs. reCAPTCHA Mailhide also requires a public and a private API key, that can be generated here:
