I really really don't want to have to input a captcha every time I log into the website. Please tell me this is something temporary or that it won't be 100% for every subsequent login attempt in the future. I've tried to login several times today and it's required a captcha every time.

I've had my browser set to delete all cookies for the last ten years, and I don't want to have to change that up now just to prevent annoyances with using Crunchyroll. It's probably not quite a deal breaker for continuing to subscribe, because I watch the majority of my Crunchyroll anime on my Roku. However I definitely do not like it for the multiple times a day I log in to check the forums.

I can understand it because there has been a lot of spam accounts lately. But I don't think it's necessary for subscribers.

My browser doesn't store anything at all, much less cookies. I've not been prompted to copy captcha text either time I've logged in today. I'm an all-access subscriber, so maybe that has something to do with it?

Hm. It might just be a bug actually now that I look again. I go to the regular login screen like always and then after I input my password I'm told I didn't input the correct captcha (even though I wasn't prompted to in the first place).

Just the normal login screen.


This is what happens after I clicked Log In.


I tried disabling my addons in Firefox as well and that didn't make a difference. I also tried through Internet Explorer and had the same problem. So I'm pretty confident it's an issue with either my account or Anime accounts.

Well, that sucks I guess it's probably just me then. And it has to be purely an account issue as I've now also tried to log in on more devices including using Safari in ios and I'm still having the same problem.

I have no idea what could have happened with my account between last night and this morning, I guess I'll have to go through email support to figure this one out. First time I've ever had an issue like this.

You are not alone. I was prompted for the Captcha even though I input my password correctly. It's kind of odd and a turn off.

EDIT: It's probably part of the changes a mod referenced to me the other day. Let's just see what happens.

I'm guessing its because they finally got sick enough of deleting all the "friends of my relatives made money on the internet" spam posts and comments to have to do something about it...

This is happening with me too, except the captcha appears when I load the page normally instead of what happened with you Balzack


I hope this isn't something permanent

Wouldn't that be more into signing up rather than signing in?


And again, I tried logging in with the right password, and I got Captch-ed. Well, that's fun.

Not all cookies are bad, you know.

I can't speak for zendude or Unknown10000 but it seems to be working for me now. I'm able to log in normally again.

It happened to me logging on via my iPad just now. Truly annoying because of autocorrect--meaning It was an extra struggle to do the captcha right. Since I'm more likely to get logged out on iPad without trying, I hope this isn't something I have to do every time!
