You’re right, we only have CAPTCHA to make our payment processor happy. I’ll try to find an alternative. I also find Google’s reCAPTCHA annoying. It’s gotten much more time-consuming lately, where it asks for many more answers (I think they benefit from the training data).
that’s certainly a possibility, but another cause can be browser privacy/anti-FP settings which not only can cause more questions to be asked, but can also slow the image refreshes to a remarkably annoying crawl
thank you for taking care of this Joe - much appreciated!
Before you tick it, try to move your cursor sporadically (imitating inaccuracy) rather than clicking it quickly by moving cursor in a straight line. There is an algorithm in reCAPTCHA that’s tracking the cursor movement accuracy to separate humans from robots.
Also, using a VPN almost always increases the chances of undergoing reCAPTCHA verification.
Back in time I came up with custom made captcha that ever since most humans had trouble solving. It could work nowadays as well. We could technically re-implement it in virtualmin.com but that’s a lot of work on top of everything.
i guess my Q is; why is a captcha needed at all for someone clicking the log-on button since they already need to supply credentials?
and yes, a VPN makes it worse (google)
anyway, THANK you guys for addressing this, really - it’s not just that it’s a (horrible) annoyance, but also the privacy issues with using anything google - matter of fact, that’s one of the reasons i just switched VPS providers (forcing google captcha for the client area)
