Incessant CAPTCHA Challenges on Ancestry


Postby GoSeigen » January 8th, 2022, 7:24 pm

Is anyone else experiencing this: whenever I try to search and sometimes even to access the site I have to do a stupid CAPTCHA Challenge apparently to decide whether I am a B.O.T. whatever that is. Why would Ancestry decide that I might turn into a BOT and back every few minutes? It's infuriating.

Not seen this, and I've been hammering it today, having just taken out a 6 month membership via a New Year offer.

The Google algorithm thinks you may be a robot. Maybe you have been doing something repetitive- opening multiple similar searches in multiple browser tabs in a short period of time, for example.

I don't use this website, so this is just a guess. I expect it'll go away again soon.
