Omegle uses Captcha to block out bots, those pesky infiltrators that try to overload a system or install worms and viruses. However, for many, the CAPTCHA app can be extremely annoying, and many a time is spent pressing stupid pictures time and time again, giving up after five different CAPTCHA screens drive us into an oblivious rage.
There are solutions, and in this article, I present you with a number of options to choose from. I also address the issue of CAPTCHA with a brief FAQ.
Method #1: Using Remove Unplug Router
- Clear the cookie list in your browser.
- Unplug the router
- Restart the computer
- Wait 5-7 minutes
- Reconnect your router
- Start Omegle without CAPTCHA
Method #2: Cookie Cleaning Apps
- Download CCleaner from the internet
- Install it on all your browsers, if you have more than one.
- Run it (It will clear your registry and cookies)
- Start Omegle without CAPTCHA
Method #3: Customer Service
If you have issues with CAPTCHA and don’t want to mess around with your cookies and router, you can always contact the Omegle staff and hope they provide a solution.
This is how to contact customer support services in Omegle:
- Go to the main page screen
- Scroll down and find the “Send Feedback” link
- Click on the link to navigate to the screen
- Fill in your e-mail address and fill in the form explaining your issue with the CAPTCHA
Method #4: VPN
VPN is a virtual proxy, which means you connect to the site via a different proxy than your own, effectively changing the IP address that you go through to Omegle. This is also a great anonymizer.
There are many VPN services online; some are free, others want payment for usage, whichever you pick, you will need to register to, and then just operate. Usually, through a VPN, you end up solving the CAPTCHA issue as well as anonymizing yourself even more.
So, there you have the basics, these will solve the CAPTCHA issues, as well as the damned reCAPTCHA issues that are extremely annoying.
FAQ Managing Captcha in Omegle
Question: Why do I get a CAPTCHA request?
Answer: CAPTCHA is activated when an IP address is considered to be spam. As such, it’s a security measure by CAPTCHA to protect the site and the users. The issue with IP address is that they are usually set within a range of addresses, and if you happen to fall into a range, you will be forced to use CAPTCHA> The only way around this is to reset your connection, which usually provides you with a different I address.
Question: I have a dedicated IP address, what do I do?
Answer: You will need to contact Omegle and get them to remove your IP address from their blocked list, or use a VPN to bypass this issue. However, I strongly suggest you contact Omegle in any event, because VPN’s do cost money for streaming.
Question: What is CAPTCHA?
Answer: A CAPTCHA is an application that determines whether the user is a human or a bot. CAPTCHA basically presents you with a distorted image of text, or a set of images with a subject in them. A computer will not be able to” read,” while the human eye will. However, with the current research going on in AI, it is possible that one day in the next few months, an AI will be able to overcome the CAPTCHA.
Question: What does CAPTCHA mean?
CAPTCHA is an acronym for “Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart.” Another name for them is a Human Interaction Proof (HIP) app.
