About hCaptcha

hCaptcha is a CAPTCHA service that allows websites to protect their content with various protection levels. It blocks users' access to web pages for different reasons, including all automated traffic. This is problematic for web scraping because its activity easily detects bots.

How hCaptcha Works

hCaptcha is a protective puzzle that users must solve before accessing a web page. It assesses the user's network traffic and actions and triggers a CAPTCHA box based on different protection levels. The CAPTCHA can appear once you land on a web page or come up due to an action like clicking a submit button. Sometimes, it can also be passive and use a bot score to detect automated scripts instead. The lower the bot score, the less likely your scraper gets blocked.

How CAPTCHA works

Detection Techniques used by hCaptcha

hCaptcha often uses an interactive CAPTCHA to differentiate between humans and bots. The puzzle varies depending on the difficulty level set by a website, making it difficult for bots to access protected web pages and extract content. hCaptcha may also detect scraping scripts based on a bot score derived from several factors, including web traffic and browser environment analysis.

hCaptcha: Types of CAPTCHAs

hCaptcha CAPTCHA types can be active, inactive, or passive. The active type is an interactive puzzle that appears when you launch a web page. An inactive one is initially invisible and only triggered by a user's action, such as clicking a buy button. Passive hCaptcha CAPTCHAs don't show visible puzzles but use a background challenge to identify real users.
