About produt images. When delete a product at the backend, the related product images are not deleted automatically, so that those useless images still occupy storage. Will Magento2 delete products and product images together? If 3 images for each product, 500KB for each image, there are 1,000 deleted products, and the 3,000 images are not deleted together with products, they waste 1.4GB storage; If there are 10,000 items, that's 14GB... Magento users have to pay for that storage. And more and more time when backup or transfer website. 1,000 items × 3 images × 500 KB/image=1.4GB 10,000 items × 3 images × 500 KB/image=14GB

@antonkril Yes, I tried. Magento captcha is too simple, and the technology is out of date, robots register very easily. Because of captcha recognition software, even magento has email verification, they can login and click the verification link automatically to finish the registration. The popular automatic registration software "senuke" and automatic captcha recognition software" captcha sniper". There are many charged automatic captcha websites. Hope that magento2 will have google verification ReCaptcha that keeps update continually.

@piotrekkaminski can you look at this request?

@antonkril Thanks for response, I thought it would be ignored. It's an unavailable site but the product keywords were grabbed by search engine. The robots registered automatically by tools, all customer emails on the list are robots(as the picture shows).
Magento is the most popular online shopping program in the world, but the verification function never updates, robots can recognize, those robots software/tools keep updating. All Magento users have troubles from robot registrations/spams. Google captcha is the best one in preventing disturbing from robots. You're advised to add the Google captcha function, in the meanwhile, keep your own verification code,update it continually. Because some users may not link to Google webserver for some reasons or in specific environment,e.g. the internal web, or specific countries and regions, the national firewall prevents linking to Google.

@cfcnn hey, thanks for reporting this. We are aware of the weakness of current captcha solution. The feature was put in backlog for one of the next releases.

Hi, I created the reCAPTCHA extension from the screenshots provided, I've just started work on the Magento 2 version (over 50% of the way there including unit tests)
The issue for me was always getting the reCAPTCHA widget to show up on the review and send to friend forms. The contact form recently got an additional info container (
form.additional.info), is there any chance that will happen for review and send to friend forms soon?

CAPTCHA changes are on the roadmap, tentatively scheduled for next year. In github it is tracked here https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues/3023. As for deleting the images, it is usually a bad idea as they might be referenced from marketing emails, blogs, search engines etc. With storage costs going down I do not consider it a priority - is it a problem for many users?

@eoghanobrien I used your reCAPTCHA extension , it worked excellently in Magento 1.9, solved well with the problem of robot. Looking forward to your Magento 2 version.
