I have yet to see somebody who is happy with this update other than paranoid people who think google is some short of big brother.
Overall, the trouble of solving the captcha is much more tedious with the new provider, it just loads ridiculously slow and on top of that you are forced to solve the captcha, no thing such as reputation on this newer system. Granted, you can deliver more or less tedious captchas, however, that doesn’t remove the fact that with ReCaptcha I just had to click a button and with the newer update I have to spend up to 1 minute just get inside a page I may be interested or not.
It’s soon to determine, but the engagement can be drastically reduced for those regions who receive frequent challenges.

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

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.


Outstanding solid topic,
with no one in management care?

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 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 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.

:wave: @ygsbhrdwj

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…

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.
