captcha now appearing on most google queries

Hi

As of yesterday, on both my iMac and my wifes PC, we are getting repeated captcha challenges with "show me the taxis" verify boxes when we initiate a Google query

What is going on?

I have run Clean My Mac but nothing has changed

Re: captcha now appearing on most google queries

Hi there @Brucemax, I've been looking into this and if a CAPTCHA is appearing when completing a Google search, this may be because Google has detected unusual traffic coming from your computer's network. 

Depending on the browser you're using, you may be able to turn off the CAPTCHA in the browser settings. I recommend searching for 'Google search CAPTCHA' online for more info.

Hi Jack

Further research reveals Google is using this to improve their AI engine.

Seems like we are all unpaid research assistants!
