A Simple Trick to Bypass Google reCaptcha in Chrome’s Incognito.
Because Google provides many personalized search results, I rely on incognito for most of my research. But lately I’ve been running into this strange problem: when I search for anything on Google in incognito mode in Chrome, I get a reCaptcha error that says, “Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it is you who are submitting the requests, not the robot. ”
A quick Google search reveals that other people have this problem too. And none of the solutions suggested in the forum (like clear cache and cookies, disable browser extensions one by one, disable VPN, etc.) worked for me.
However, I noticed that this error only appears on my office WiFi (coworking) and not on my home network.
Fortunately, there is an easy way to fix this. Just create a bookmark with the URL https://www.google.com and log in to the Internet through it. Here’s how it would look: you open an incognito window, click on the Google.com bookmark you created, and start searching. You won’t get the annoying Google reCaptcha this time. Watch the video below. [if lt IE 9] <! [endif]
To create a bookmark in Chrome.
- Open https://www.google.com in a new tab.
- Click the star on the right side of the omnibox.
- A small window should appear.
- Give it a name and in the Folder section make sure the Bookmarks Bar is selected.
- Click Finish.
If you don’t see any bookmarks in the top bookmarks bar, use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + B (or Cmd + Shift + B for Mac) to show or hide bookmarks.
And it’s all. Oddly enough, accessing a Google search via a bookmark does not trigger reCaptcha. I have been using this workaround for several months now and have never had a problem.
Alternatively, you can use browser add-ons like Buster to bypass the reCAPTCHA automatically.
