Captcha check for Brazi IPs?

    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.

    Unfortunately the issue resides with our hosting provider.  Until they are able to be certain the recent attack does not happen again, they need to have the authentication in place.  Though it should only occur once per IP address.  Since Cloudflare is our major hosting provider, there is not much we are able to do until they get things sorted.

    This is a big problem. The problem occur once per IP, but my customers uses once too, so the forms become unusable for me. Some persons stop at captcha, others continue but become irritated.

    Please find a way around this, because it is generating losses for us and certainly many others.

    Maybe change the server to Brazilian customers may be a temporary solution

    Our engineers had to put this restriction due to the recent DDoS attack we've got from Brazil.  So, that's why CloudFlare (which is our additional security layer provider) is doing a Captcha check for incoming connections from Brazil.

    Sorry for these inconveniences, let me raise a ticket for our devs about this, so they can give you a better insight.
