Maybe the most popular, but far from being the better tho.

  • Block user blacklisting Google.
  • Block user using alternative internet protocols (I2P, TOR, for talking only the most popular.
  • Blocking people who block trackers, or people using some browser settings.
  • Can waste minutes to the user complete the whole CAPTCHA, by pretending multiples times that the user failed on multiple test.
    And the worse for a CAPTCHA :
  • It can be bypassed, HereĀ“s for example Buster, and entirely free browser extension, that ironically use a couple of (API), including own Google ones to bypass their entire services.

there are also some darkweb services to bypass it which I now pay for on some sites I use more often.

The only intention why this is so popular is to train G00gle' algorithms. I wish websites would stop using this sh*t and start looking for alternatives!

I have bad memories of having to go through 50 picture selections in a row before finally giving up. And, yes, this thing is just a crowdsourcing method to help Google's bots recognize objects in images.

When it works, it works well with just a click of the box. When it doesn't... you're going to have a bad time trying to decide whether a box has a fire hydrant in it or not.

A horrible and privacy intrusive solution blocking common users and making users work for Google.

An example of technical monopoly where there are very few other viable and privacy friendly solutions.

since trump administration cancelled protection of users from ISP which allows all ISP to harvest surfing behavior of clients [to sell] it is foolish to use internets without VPN. I use VPN services from companies well rated by Torrent Freak. I am not a pirate or a spammer. I am also not politically correct because I will not comply with intellectual tyranny either.

I would no more disable VPN than I would adblock whitelist a site using third party ads

Does it help Google's analyzing bots ?

I ihhgly suspect their image captcha to be a hidden tool for their bots to better analyze pictures and identify specific objects on photos... and i don't like it...
Other than that, being able to pass the captcha with a single click (most of the time) is quite a big advantage.
