I authorized google trackers, then gstatic, and then… suddenly I could sign in without even having to fill in a captcha. i don't get it.

@azaliz as if... it was never really about being a human or a robot...

@theruran ugh. wow. The amount of blind trust in Google it takes to say "everyone uses Google, so if they have google cookies on their browser it means they're a human and otherwise they're a risk"

@azaliz @theruran extremely bad to allow Google to become the internet police, given that they are one of the worst actors possible.

@azaliz as I understand it, if it can match you up with a real person’s google ID or similar, it then is less likely to ask. Recaptcha still operates but in the background and decides “yep this is X” Which is a real 😐😑

@azaliz google runs a service where they will use all the personal information they've gathered about a person to confirm for companies that that person is human, without the person needing to even do a captcha.
