    An easier fix is to simply change your search engine to duck duck go in your web browser choose search engine section. Google tracks and stores your search information via your IP address and then sell your search information to the highest bidders. Once you get a VPN (virtual private network) Google starts sending you to those stupid captcha web pages because they can no longer track you to sell your tracked searches and or private data so they purposely make your internet experience suck. That’s why I’ll never use them again.

      Daniel, this is the most plausible statement that I have read. It is soo good. Google trying to control. Do it the way we want you to or we’ll make it hard for you and you will give in eventually.
      Duck Duck Go for me.

      This does not work, Google codes the reCaptcha which 99% of websites use. You can’t just change search engines it does not work like that.

      The source code for reCaptcha is owned and maintained by Google, and because 99% of web developers use it, you can’t simply get away from it.

      All I can say is if your a web developer relying on reCraptcha then you’re a d*ckhead who doesn’t want even legitimate users on your website.

    Sure use DDG since it’s so private a search engine, that doesn’t store Any information on user’s at all (per privacy and terms info) Except for the fact that they Do store info on users. And if you believe the reason is for ‘to check for misspelling’ if so why did DDG try to deny it? But afterwards admitted it’s only to check spelling issues. And report back everything to amazing since it’s Amazon server’s they use. But it’s still safer than google. Possible.

    Any variations on your advice for mobile users? I got a simple check-the-box robot test for the first time today while searching on my cell phone. It said my network was having questionable behavior, but wouldn’t that be T-Mobile?

    I like having pertinent ads so I usually don’t care about that kind of tracking, but I was trying to verify a social media report on a politically charged issue, so I’m particularly wondering if Google is now tracking me for nefarious political reasons, which obviously isn’t OK.

    Google is profiling you with captchas. You would be surprised at all of the data points they can capture to statistically single out a user. Almost like a fingerprint. They can use your profile when logged in and cross-reference that against non logged in profiles they have captured in order to identify anonymous users.

  7. gaslighting says:

    In addition to down-ranking sites associated with disinformation, we also often place news modules and information boxes at the top of DuckDuckGo search results (where they are seen and clicked the most) to highlight quality information for rapidly unfolding topics.

    Duck Duck Go is just Google by another name, deciding what is truth and feeding it to you or restricting what you can know. All of the search engines are controlled by the same liars.

    Fact: “fact checker” = LIAR

    I quit using Google. That should fix it.

      You can’t change browsers to get away from captchas…

      The code is put on the website by the developers who *think* it stops spammers, which is partly correct, because it wont let spammers OR legitimate people through.

      DDG is not going to solve your problem, as DDG does not program reCaptcha which is what 90% of developers use, which is as mentioned programmed by Google.

      I can’t get past these captchas for the life of me even when I fill it correctly, so now 99% of websites are inaccessible.

    no one is going to do any of these suggestions if on a corporate network!

      If you’re on a corporate network and they have even some basic security, the cookies and history wont be saved locally, it would be saved where only administrator can access it. Local caches would be cleared automatically.
