Security settings allow users to control the spam via reCAPTCHA implementation:
Enable reCAPTCHA: Enables reCAPTCHA on all registration forms, and provide access to following sub-settings.
reCAPTCHA Language: In case reCAPTCHA display image of words, this setting allows for specific language to be chosen, according to which words will rendered.

Site Key: To use reCAPTCHA, you need to sign up for an API key pair for your site. The key pair consists of a site key and secret. The site key is used to display the widget on your site. You can generate site key from from Google reCAPTCHA link:
https://www.google.com/recaptcha/admin#list

Secret Key: The secret authorizes communication between your application backend and the reCAPTCHA server to verify the user’s response. The secret needs to be kept safe for security purposes. It will be provided when you generate site key.

Request Method:Depending on the PHP version configuration of the server, where site has been hosted, request method may be required to be updated. By default setting uses cURLPost, that is good for most of the cases. Change this setting to SocketPost (connection over SSL), only if your reCAPTCHA is not working as expected.
