@resist1984 Hi! reCaptcha has actually been there since 2014. It’s not new, and few people notice it since it only comes up if that account is being attacked. In 2014, sadly there were no alternatives. However, we are now in the process of switching over to hCaptcha, and this transition should take place in the next few weeks.
