STOP USING hCAPTCHA

WHAT?? Even people with worst dyslexia can still read 3 letters without any problems… Maybe you should look up some facts on Wikipedia.

  1. Don’t feed the trolls.

  2. See 1.

  3. Be positive not insulting to someone with actual visual and reading disabilities.

  4. Thank-you.

Hi,

hcaptcha does not work in IPv6 only connections and it breaks the web. Previously reCAPTCHA worked fine over IPv6.

I am considering disabling cloudflare as this will turn away legitimate users who faces the captcha page and will be unable to access the site.

Thanks.

Please use ANY captcha but NOT hcaptcha

Cloudflare’s CEO has directly said why they’re using hCaptcha and the link was posted in this thread before.

Again, the best thing anyone can do is to set the security level to Essentially Off and use a firewall rule to block malicious traffic by setting a threat level to block that is suitable for each individual website that does not wish to use hCaptcha.

It’s breaking all sorts of things. This morning I can’t log in to Box.com because it blocks the loading of a critical .js file. If I click on the failed file in the developer console to pull it down, I’m greeted with an hCaptcha. After getting through that, I’m able to log in, but there are further errors on the page that prevent me from using it.

I’ve signed up for the accessibility service, gotten my daily cookie, and I have privacypass installed and all ad blocking disabled, but no dice.

I sympathize that reCaptcha is no longer free, but this new system is NOT ready for primetime!!

plot twist: everyone who complain here is a bot and hcaptcha successfully stopping them :open_mouth:

just joking no dought google was better, but I dont think we should blame them when we see the captcha page… its the website owners to decide when to show them

I tried hCaptcha for the lead for on a landing page. When i check with GTmetrix performance test, it increased loading time. Is it possible to optimize via wprocket ?

Sounds like Box.com added captcha checks for a JS file in error, should never occur on that because a normal user would always miss it.

Please Remove This irritating captcha.

As a Cloudflare customer you absolutely have the option to disable Captcha for your website and use JavaScript challenge or a block instead. Or you can choose another security solution which uses a captcha mechanism more to your liking.

However the folks who write scrapers and other malicious tools are flooding this posts and others complaining about hCaptcha for a reason…

PLEASE KEEP HCAPTCHA!

reCAPTCHA is an absolute nightmare. The hCAPTCHA detection process is far more browser-agnostic, much faster when it comes to selecting images, and moreover, a company with less monopoly and seemingly better aims than Google. hCAPTCHA is great!

I request cloudflare to please remove this stupid,annoying,irritating Hcaptcha from their service in spite of that use any better services like recaptcha or anything else but not this Hcaptcha, Mine almost 80% visitors move on due to this completely rubbish Hcpatcha thing. cloudflare is best on their services and it really doesn’t suites them to use this third class service.

@ravipnmd see the above discussion, or for just the official blog post:

STOP USING hCAPTCHA

This is driving me nuts. Each time I log in I’m hit with the fing hCaptcha check. It’s so annoying because the images are too small on my monitor I can hardly see them. Then I have to do it twice, that’s if I get it right which for some reason I seem to get wrong so I wind up playing this game which I think is boiling down to training AI for their end clients. Which I DONT HAVE TIME FOR. I need to log in and work not play with hCaptcha’s Fing business model. ITS NOT OK!!!

big sites like youtube, amazon, and many other that dont use cloudflare + hcaptcha are used a lot by many users

sites cloudflare + hcaptcha makes those sites impossible to use

every single time you go to a page on those site, you see cloudflare first, and even after you solve the hcaptcha, it shows up every single time after a long delay

i asked the person that made the site to get rid of cloudflare + hcaptcha cos it doesn’t help since all the big sites must be using something else, and i’ve no idea what’s going on with cloudflare + hcaptcha

has any users ever found out how to fix this cloudflare + hcaptcha problem?

sites [that uses] cloudflare + hcaptcha makes those sites impossible to use*

cause of problem is opening some amount of links, but cloudflare + hcaptcha thinks that it’s a lot even tho it’s nothing compared to users that use the big sites with no problems

even after many hours, problem still exist and doesn’t go away
