This worked great to solve my issue of the ReCaptcha v3 showing up on EVERY page with Contact Form 7. I tried several variations of code for disabling the loading of the scripts on pages that were not my contact form, and none of them worked properly. This was tested with WP v5.7 and CF7 v5.4 successfully, confirmed with a debug / fiddler trace that the scripts were not downloaded by the client.

This plug-in does exactly what it says it does. But, even more important: it removes the Google reCaptcha files from all the pages that don't use a Contact Form 7 form in the page. This is not only a speed-boost, but makes your website less Googly and more privacy friendly. It doesn't take a sidebar into account though (hence the 4*). But, for the site I'm currently working on, that's not an issue. I'm very happy with the simplicity of this plug-in and would definitely recommend it.
