There are lots of blogs/discussion boards blasting Google’s recaptcha function to “prove” you are not a robot. Many claim they are a ploy by the evil b*stards at Google to get data for their self-driving car project.
If you REALLY want the service being guarded, this website provides some concrete suggestions although I do not agree with some of them:
- Solve the Audio Challenge. Claims it is easier
- Use VPN from a " a well-known VPN service. Not sure how that would help
- Use ReCAPTCHA Bypass Bots. I would be afraid that the bots will be malware.
- Hire a Captcha Solving Service. Apparently these services hire people in low-pay economies to solve the captcha for you. Again concerned about malware.
Of course, the best solution is not to do business with websites that require these torture devices. If you must, the best suggestion seems to be the audio challenge.
