You click the "none" on every captcha I have ever seen like that. It always works for me.
I can sometimes go through 3 or 4. Sometimes I simply move on then unable to access - few sites are such I must spend time going through such idiotic blocks.
I know some one that has developed a Captcha free anti spam solution for most WordPress forms. And it really works.
@Mr D it helps a lot if you stay logged into Google. Very likely by design - they can track you a lot better that way - a lot of sites use recaptcha, most load something from Google.
@Alan I have developed captcha free anti-spam for multiple sites (not Wordpress ones though) and its worked pretty well, the same on a number of sites I maintain. All much less of a burden for users.
Logged into Google? Why would anyone want to do that?
I do not, but I tend to have a harder time with recaptcha than people who do.
So one answer to your question is to make getting past recaptcha easier. The more you let Google track you the less hassle you have.
I just don’t bother with sites that want me to count busses. There is almost always somewhere else you can get what you need.
Thank you all for your replies and suggestions. I've reached the conclusion that there's no single satisfactory answer...
1. reCAPTCHA v3 appears to involve putting tracking-like code on your site pages (not just the submit page). Google then evaluates visitor behaviour and decides whether to present the visitor with fire hydrants. I've got enough tracking code on my pages without adding more!
2. Honeypot fields are easy enough to implement but don't solve the problem. They can tell you if the visitor is a bot, but don't stop it submitting the form.
3. Some people (above) will leave a site as soon as they see a CAPTCHA.
I think I'll just put enquiry-form spammers on my execution list - right after manufacturers of wood-screws with soft metal heads.
They do if the form is set up correctly.
A maths capture is easy to implement and catches out many bots.
I also have a small script that checks how quickly the form is filled out. Bots take seconds so the scripts junks the submission.
I've been spam free for years.
@fisicx is right and a honeypot field can stop spam - you check the form and do not process it further if the honeypot field is filled in. So the form is submitted but you never see any result of that.
That and maths captcha have worked well for multiple clients, and homepot fields some of my own sites.
Good attitude and shows respect for your customers. recaptcha is even worse than most because they cannot block it and still use your site.
