This is honestly the WORST fucking thing imaginable. According to it I am robot most of the fucking time. Not only it uses terrible images (how the fuck do I determine what is a storefront when I see kanji crap etc) it fails almost all the time, it won't detect corner cases like (like does fucking pedestrian traffic light apply? Do you select tile if just part of fucking thing is in the view?). It's absolutely fucking retarded. I would rather have fucking bots posting spam everywhere but this shit. Delete this google and start again.

This repo is for the client code for developer that need to verify their response to the API. I understand that the challenges can be frustrating. You might want to consider contacting the sites where you're experiencing this to advise them to update to the v3 version of the service which presents a confidence score rather than blocking with a challenge.

We're missing ReCaptacha on here to stop angry abusive bots!

While the tone distracts from the overall feedback, the submitter’s concerns are entirely valid. Captcha hurts user experience. ReCaptcha is somewhat broken, with the “fix” only increasing success rates (~85% → 90%). If the problem is to slow down attackers while not unduly harming legitimate user experience, this system, as currently implemented, fails utterly and completely.

By comparison, “proof of work” systems such as this can be transparent to the user (“unlock” when focusing the first field) and completed by the time the form is filled out, if legitimately typing as a human do. Additionally, you can adjust the work difficulty based on request rates; clients trying to go too fast can be directly slowed down. (Plus replay / stale use prevention, avoidance of pre-calculation by use of challenges, …)

I wish I was a bot so it would be justified. On my work laptop I simply skip all websites that require captcha because I know I will spend 10 minutes at least getting it. If I will ever be able to. That is a huge issue and sometimes I it just boils over and I get really angry and vent my frustration (like here). It is incredibly slow, annoyingly vague (lot of the times part of hydrant or traffic lights goes over tile and then what?) and even worse, sometimes if you don't solve it in time, the original website will time you out, issuing another captcha. How utterly ridiculous is that?

The swearing is a bit much!

But the sad truth is a university project created a bot that can trick Google ReCaptcha with a success rate of 91% accuracy for V2.

You can see the full details here: https://github.com/ecthros/uncaptcha2

I am sure they can get a high success rate with the V3 as well.

The things I hate about Google ReCaptcha:

  • Their CSP is poor on a broad range of browsers e.g. This github repo suggests Nonces but there are known issues with IE11, Edge and Safari IOS.
  • The Widget is not properly responsive. You have to hack it to make it work for Mobile devices!
  • No proper AMP-HTML module yet for Google ReCaptcha (so makes their AMP Forms Pointless and Open to Spam).
  • Actually has a poor success rate against bots in many public and private studies.

Enerccio completely agree.
Trying to install it on a website, having issues with PHP. Should take 5 min to fix. Its been an hour now, still clicking these god damn fucking images. May whoever made reCaptcha burn in hell, seriously, in hell.

Why are you not using reCAPTCHA v3 which does not use images? All these concerns and frustration are now gone as it runs invisibly in the background giving you control on the scoring and actions to take now.

I would like to reopen this issue as recaptcha is the fucking worst. I will now give up on logging into most websites because of how many series of buses or fire hydrants I need to recognise. I am not here to spend several minutes (no exaggeration, I just went through four series of grid recognition and ended up giving up) to train your AI.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Use recaptcha

Now, I agree that ranting against open source software without doing anything is not productive, so in my spare time I have worked hard on a fix and I think I got it right. For some reason I cannot commit to a branch, so here are the full steps to reproduce the fix:

  1. Completely delete this repository
  2. Wipe recaptcha from the face of the Earth

Thanks in advance. 👍
