    This is a security feature from CloudFlare. If you are using DHCP IP and the series of IP's has a bad reputation online then more likely you will be seeing this screen.

    It filters IP to prevent our site from bots or any other threats online. This security layer is just to test whether the visitor is bot or a real person. Once you have completed this challenge your IP should be recognized and the next time you visit the site you will no longer see that screen.

    You can also check this article by CloudFlare, CloudFlare Captcha Challenge on Website.

    I hope this helps. Let us know if the problem is a specific widget or the main website itself.

    Same here. And I'm in Brazil too.

    I believe that restrict access to certain IP zones is a very abusive preventive measure.

    You solve one problem but create many inconvenience to your customers, especially with a message like this from CloudFlare, fully generic and always in English.

    Apologies for the inconveniences, the reason is that we receive a DDoS attack for the past days from IPs located in Brazil, that is why CloudFlare is doing a Captcha check.

    But I believe that the problem has already been resolved, and because this seems to be happening more frequent than the normal, I'll escalate this to our developers so that they can take a closer look. We'll receive a notification when an update has been made.

    For the meantime, you can do the following to troubleshoot:

    1. Clear Browser Cache

    2. Clear Form's Cache

    3. Try using a different web browser.


    Apologies again for the inconveniences.

    Thank you.
