    Mobile Captcha

    • Status: Closed Priority: Normal

    I don't know if this is a bug or not, but I'm putting it here anyway

     

    Unlike desktop, when you do a captcha on mobile, it requires you to do the "select the boxes" type. On desktop you just have to check it off and you're done.


    Steps to reproduce bug: Self explanatory.
    Additional information: Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime

    This is by (Google’s) design.

     

    If the series of checks for the “click and go” captcha fail, you must solve a puzzle to get through. This means you can also get the select the boxes type on Desktop.

    It's never happened to me on desktop after they fixed the unsolvable captcha bug a bit ago. It only happens to me on mobile. How does it only fail on mobile?

    It doesn't only fail on mobile. Just because you've never experienced it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

     

    The way it works I believe is it uses mouse movements before the button is pressed to determine if it was checked by a human or by a robot (among other things like previous activity on Google sites while other things will cause it to default to the puzzle, for example using a VPN), and I'm not sure if this is adjusted to mobile tapping/scrolling so that's probably why.

    That makes sense. Thanks mate. This can be closed if someone else can confirm.
