    Picture captchas ! 1st Apr 17 at 5:15 PM
    These picture captchas are getting weirder . I just had one which asked me to tick all the hamsters ? Except there weren't any. Only a rabbit, a squirrel, a chinchilla and some other furry creature.. It only let me enter when I had ticked all those !

    Has anyone else had problems with it freezing lately? A few times, I have selected all the squares with trains, then all the squares with vehicles, then all the squares with road signs, then it all goes greyed out and I cannot click either skip, refresh or submit.

    It's worse than ever again. Think they've employed some morons to run another update.
    The current PITA is having to select 'all the roads until none are left' (or similar)
    After selecting something like 6891 roads it then asks you to select 'all the road signs' and there are no ****** road signs and insits that there are (and other similar 'The captcha hasn't got a clue what it's doing' style impossible tasks)
    Oh, and do enjoy the new 'tap the centre of the mail box' task
    Not to mention the freezing

    I gave up selecting pictures. Clicked headphone and type what you hear. Works better for me. Road sign click never works!

    Seems to be playing up badly again
    Just selected 50+ cars and it made me do it again
    and again
    and again
    and again
    Been doing this type of thing again on all the picture captcha comps

    It started acting up for me this morning in Edge, but I switched to Chrome and it was absolutely fine on there. Either goes straight to tick, or the pictures work ok.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but I was googling this problem yesterday and read on the google support page re clearing history cookies etc. I tried an incognito tab on chrome and hey ho working absolutely perfectly and first time.

    Its the private browsing tab.
    You right click on the link and click on the incognito option on the drop down menu.

    They had been fine but they've got infuriating again over the past few days. It's the ones that keep disappearing (infuriatingly slowly) and you have to wait and keep clicking the new ones (cars are the worst) then they don't work and you've got to start again.

    Yes, I've started getting them again after not seeing any for quite a while.

    Fortunately they only did 2-3 before going through.

    These are seriously doing my head in big time.

    Even the incognito window ones are not working as good now. Just tried to enter a Daily Star comp via incognito window and it will just not work at all.

    I posted on the Google Forums re this however I got an email saying a moderator has moved my post as there are other posts about the same thing. I cannot see any posts re this so no idea where my post has gone.
