What is CAPTCHA?

Other than being everyone’s least favorite word to type, CAPTCHA is a type of test designed to differentiate between humans and robotic software. C.A.P.T.C.H.A. stands for Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart. Now you may be wondering what exactly that means. The Turing test was created by Alan Turing in 1950, it is a test of a machine’s ability to show intelligent behavior equal to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human.

 

You have seen these tests all over the internet in the form of boxes to click and those fun jigsaw picture puzzles where you have to choose the store fronts or street signs. The company that provides this service is called ReCAPTCHA, which is owned by Google, but we will discuss this later.

 

One Click CAPTCHA

This type of Captcha is the one you will want to see most often. More specifically, 1-Click Captchas are called “I am not a robot Captcha”, which requires you to check a box. That being said, the formula that Google uses to give these out is not made public, so all the information you are about to read is based on educated guesses, logic and testing.

 

Since Google owns ReCAPTCHA and Gmail, it is believed that using a Gmail account will activate the 1-Click CAPTCHA. For a higher chance of getting more 1-Clicks, it is suggested to use an active Gmail account. An active Gmail account will be listed as the first option if you have multiple accounts.

 

It is also suggested to use this active Gmail account to do online searches and to use other Google services like Google Maps, Drive, Sheets and Docs. You can also use this Gmail on your phone through the Gmail app to send and receive emails as well. The reasoning behind this is to appear as human as possible.

 

CAPTCHA with Project Destroyer

The next piece of the puzzle is YouTube. YouTube is also owned by Google, so it is recommended to perform the following steps when using Project Destroyer for a higher chance of 1-Click CAPTCHA by using GLOGIN. (Make sure to sign out of your google login and then sign back in before starting tasks.)

 

20-30 minutes before the drop-time, login to your Google account on GLOGIN and watch Youtube videos. You can also “Like” a couple of videos as well for a better chance at 1-Clicks. The reasoning behind liking videos is to add another layer of humanism to the overall process. Remember to keep the tab open. Do NOT close it until it’s close to the drop.  

 

Lastly, you will want to click LOGOUT before you close out of Project Destroyer.

 

What are G-Suites?

G-Suites are Gmail accounts that are maintained by an institution, such as a school or college. You should use a school or college (.edu) email if you have one available to you. These Gmail accounts are provided through Google Education Suites. Because they are only given to students, these Gmails receive a higher percentage of 1-Click Captchas.

 

There is also the theory that using a G-Suite account will get you 1-Click CAPTCHA at the highest percentage. This is because G-Suite accounts have to be verified through a multi-step process to successfully open one. Now, for all my friends who have are using Google Cloud Servers, you are halfway there. You just have to upgrade your account to a paid account. If not, then here’s a link where you can get a 14-Day free trial to test the theory for yourself.

*Note* – If you have a Captcha bypass extension installed on Chrome, this won’t work correctly.

 

Pro Tip

During a drop, it’s best to have 2 Gmails with 1-Click Captcha. You want to use the first Gmail on the initial drop, that will use all of those 1-Clicks. Then you will switch to your second Gmail account to run for restocks with a fresh batch of 1-Clicks and in this manner, you minimize your chances of getting hit with a captcha.
