Hello fellow Shopify'ers,
Has anyone else noticed a sudden decrease in speed with Shopify adding Google ReCaptcha to your site. I suddenly found it had ben added to mine and it's really hammered my pagespeed, my Mobile pages are now getting a 15 score just from them.
Does anyone know if we can get them to be loaded with async to restore speed?
I've just found the setting, for those reading it's under Theme>Preferences>reCaptcha
As someone who moved to Shopify to get away from the spammy rubbish I was getting on OpenCart I can see the need for reCaptcha, but is it needed on every page? I can understand for my contact forms and such, but there is no real benefit on an item page, maybe Shopify could look at offering a setting dialog to allow us to enable/disable on certan page types?
Actually, they purpose to opt for the contact and checkout page, and if a contact form is added to your footer widget, then it will load overall pages.
and I think this is the one reason it loads the script over all pages, like collections, and single product pages also.
