First of all, what is CAPTCHA?
CAPTCHA is an acronym for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.” As the name suggests, it is the text or image verification you are asked to enter by certain websites to filter out bots from the human.
The reason websites use CAPTCHA it to prevent spammers and hackers from automatically performing a certain action on the website using automated scripts or “Bots”.
Hackers create custom scripts or bots to crack passwords of websites through a technique called Brute Force. Bots are also used to create multiple email ID’s, posting spam comments on the blogs among various other Black Hat techniques.
Can you really make money with CAPTCHA Typing?
The answer is a big NO. It’s difficult to make even a decent income from CAPTCHA Typing Jobs. Majority of websites that offer CAPTCHA typing jobs are a scam. They will lure you into working for them by promising high pay rates. Unfortunately, when you try to withdraw your earnings, you’ll be asked to pay money for payment processing and other charges which will make it harder for you to receive your earnings. Needless to say, you will never get your money. Although some websites will never ask you for any payments, but you won’t even get your payment, because these sites will simply disappear.
There are some genuine websites who do make payments. But again, these websites make false claim of providing high paying CAPTCHA work. However, once you register with them, you’ll realize the pay rates are mostly between $0.2 – $1 per 1000 CAPTCHA entered, which is pathetically low rates.
If the low pay rates are not enough, there’s no guarantee that you can cash out your earnings. Most CAPTCHA typing websites have ridiculous rule of banning users who enter “few” incorrect CAPTCHAs. If you get banned, you lose all your earnings.
CAPTCHA Entry is neither ethically correct nor will it make you rich. The only people who are benefitted by this type of work are CAPTCHA Typing websites and spammers. So do not waste your time, energy and money for it.
