There are many things that could frustrate you while you are surfing the net and trying to access certain sites, but the one that could be most frustrating is when you are repeatedly asked to input “captchas” just so you prove your humanity.

Have you ever tried accessing certain web pages – sometimes even Google – only for them to start doubting and questioning your humanity? That could be very annoying, at least to a lot of people including me, especially when you’re sure that you are actually human and not a robot. I am not usually pleased with this.

However what can we say when the people involved are just trying to be security conscious, only that it is at the expense of the convenience of their visitors. Some people can even close the webpage and forget visiting it just because of that. But in this post, we would review a few reasons why you might be seeing such occurrences more often. Stay with me.
