Indiegala.com uses the new reCAPTCHA from Google.
If I login there using Safari (for the first time on that site) I get the ‘Click to show you are not a robot” and when I do I get logged in straight away.
If I login using Chromium when I tick the box I get shown an image matching task as I posted about here.
If I login using Firefox I don’t even get the chance to click anything and I am shown a very distorted couple of words and everything I enter is always wrong. So then I get shown some code to copy as I posted about here.
I clear cookies and all saved data in each browser when it closes so this behaviour by Google has to come down to 2 options as I see it.
- Google are using some sort of super cookie / evercookie.
- Google have fingerprinted my browser.
According to Panopticlick
Your browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 5,186,229 tested so far.
Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys at least 22.31 bits of identifying information
Google are part of the problem. They are not part of any solution.
