    Captchas are designed to change every time they are loaded/the form is opened. This is to ensure that the person filling out the captcha is a real human and is not an automated computer program used by spammers. By constantly changing the captcha every time it is loaded, this prevents the computer program from reading a pattern that they can use to bypass the system. Meanwhile, a human filling up the form can easily read the capctha and enter the required input.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    No, I mean it CONSTANTLY changes, as in once per second. Is there a way
    to change this?

    Can you please indicate the form in question. I have just reviewed the form, 61356036984159 (Parish email), and did not notice the CAPTCHA changing every few seconds.

    I'm having the same issue on my customer's site. The captcha changes rapidly, constantly. If you put in a word, it'll bring up another captcha which is stable and you can type it in. Need to stop the constant cycling. My customer is getting a bit angry.

    Looks like it might be browser specific. If I go there from inside Microsoft Edge, it doesn't do that, but IE and Chrome and Firefox all have it flashing rapidly...
