Can you please tell me what browser version you’re using as well as what OS you’re using? Additionally, are you connected through a VPN at this time?

Brave is up to date

Version 1.40.109 Chromium: 103.0.5060.66 (Official Build) (64-bit)

windows 10

yes, nordvpn


  1. Update Brave search (Beta is old)
  2. Test without VPN

Yes can you please tell me if it works with your VPN disabled?

I am having this problem - it is driving me crazy. Every search results in a captcha and sometimes solving the captcha only brings up a new captcha. This just started a week ago.

I am using:
Version 1.40.113 Chromium: 103.0.5060.114 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Mac OS 11.4

I am using Proton vpn

The Captacha does not appear if I turn off my vpn

Thank you for reporting. I know that the Search team is aware of this issue, I’ve reached out for an update.

Still doing it. I solve a puzzle and then have to sit and stare at a series of dots for 20 seconds while waiting for Brave to decide whether I am worthy of seeing its search results.

Starting to like google again :((

I started getting a forced captcha when I go to 4chan’s website using my android. Brave blocks their ads so I am not sure if that makes the site owners mad. I wouldn’t be able to use the site if the ads weren’t blocked (most of them are porn).
