How to Bypass Google reCAPTCHA Verification in Chrome And Firefox.
Google has updated reCAPTCHA to prevent offensive traffic from websites. But more often than not, Google misunderstood people as potential bots. This usually happens if you are not logged into your Google account, or if you are using a VPN, or if your IP address appears to be Google spam. While you can just click some images to prove that you are human, sometimes this reCAPTCHA gets very aggressive with its street signs that goes on forever. I recently found a way to bypass reCAPTCHA without having to deal with fuzzy images. Let’s start.
Bypass Google reCAPTCHA verification with Buster
Buster is a Chrome extension that authenticates reCAPTCHA for you. The extension is really simple and effective: you go to the site and click the reCAPTCHA button. IT will download a popup and provide you with images to choose from. Buster adds a button to this popup that you can click for CAPTCHA authentication. It does not use image based CAPTCHAs, but instead uses audio based CAPTCHAs. This Chrome extension will only work if it has an audio CAPTCHA.
Fun Fact: The developer uses the Google Cloud Speech to Text API to decode the audio CAPTCHA and pass it to the system.
Install Buster: CAPTCHA Solver for Humans
The first step is to install the extension to your browser, it is available for Chrome, Opera and Firefox.
Once completed, it will appear as a button in the reCAPTCHA window that you can click to automatically solve the CAPTCHA. The extension does not have any controls or settings, only the ability to buy coffee for the developer.
To see this in action, go to a website that requires reCAPTCHA authentication. Check the box next to “I’m not a robot”.
You will see a familiar popup with instructions at the top and a couple of images below. The Buster icon is next to the audio CAPTCHA button, click the CAPTCHA solver button to start the authentication process.
Buster listens for Audio CAPTCHAs and parses the information into the Google Cloud Speech to Text API, which converts the speech sample to a string of letters. The extension copies the sentence into the input field and authenticates the CAPTCHA for you.
Completing the CAPTCHA authentication using this method will only take a few seconds. If you were using the traditional image-based method, it could take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute, which is just annoying.
So, here’s how you can bypass reCAPTCHA without any problems. Buster does not use any shadow methods for CAPTCHA authentication. It uses google API to solve CAPTCHA, which is original and funny in my opinion. This extension will only work if the reCAPTCHA has the ability to resolve with audio.
This method is not reliable and it tried to recognize words several times during my testing. However, the pros outweigh the cons in this situation and I would recommend this if you are looking for a quick way to bypass CAPTCHAs. Alternatively, you can also try “I’m not a code review robot”, which automatically sets the “I’m not a robot” checkbox on page load.
