ReCAPTCHA problems

Post by derbagni » Thu Nov 15, 2018 10:09 am

Did something change? I am unable to login half the time because the recaptcha is either not accepting any responses or is so slow to be barely useable. I went through 20 recaptha pages and it never let me login. What is going on?

That would definitely solve the problem! But it happens on my phone, and every computer I try, even on different networks, so it is very frustrating.

maybe someone on your network has failed the recaptcha too often

Can you specify which page you are on?
Any screenshots?

Could you post a screenshot of the issue you're having, so that we can begin an investigation?

if you fail so many, or your ip subset has had issues in the past getting a correct captcha, google likes to throw tests at you constantly, try using google chromes incognito mode, it could be a tracked cookie by google telling recapcha your a robot

This fixed it. I generally use a VPN so that could be part of it, but I could also have a cookie causing problems. It is just a bit weird that it is so many different devices that have different IPs and browswers. Either way, Incognito mode worked like a charm and I passed on the first try without it throwing 50 more at me.

I will clean up my browser cookies and see if that makes a difference as well.

Thanks!
