Google ReCaptcha seems to give Brave users a bad score

When using ReCaptcha v2 in Brave (usually use private browsing) versus other browsers such as Safari or Chrome, I always have to solve roughly eight times as many problems to pass the captcha (same IP). Google clearly is giving certain USER AGENTS bad scores.

Is there a way to customize the USER AGENT given to Google’s ReCaptcha to avoid being penalized?


Hello, I will suggest you turn off Brave Shields when visiting a site that uses ReCaptcha.


The problem is that ReCaptcha relies on user tracking and fingerprinting, both things that Brave does its best to reduce or eliminate for privacy reasons.

Note that this doesn’t have anything to do with the user agent string because Brave currently uses the same user agent string as Chrome.
