Garbage Captcha

Garbage Captcha

egilhard

When logging into my (Premium) account using the webplayer I now have to complete the Google captcha (e.g. click on all images that contain a street number or a lake/sea or whatever). This is so annoying. I'm paying for your freaking service but still you are using my as a image labeller for Google. Thanks for that!!!!

Hey @egilhard

 

That's odd.

 

I got an error recently about captcha not successful at something, but that's about it.

Is your browser set to delete cookies each time you close it?
VPN may be the cause too, if you're using it.

 

I'd also recommend checking your PC with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware (and your antivirus software) to make sure you have no malware. Some types of malware may trigger captchas, but mostly those on Google searches.

 

Let me know how it goes 🙂

I have had to do the capthca too for the web player.

 

My best guess is to help stop people from setting up bots to abuse the Spotify service by trying to game the play counts.
