RecaptchaV2Task: solve Google Recaptcha puzzle with your proxy

Use this type of task to solve Recaptchas in Google services. In all other cases use RecaptchaV2TaskProxyless to solve Recaptcha in proxy-off mode. Google's API does not disclose the solver's IP address to website owners.

Our system is build so that a worker's browsers don't have access to your proxy servers. This data is stored on our server and is removed as soon as the task is completed. Workers' computers interact only with our servers. Your proxy is accessed only from one IP address. More information in this FAQ section.

Before executing this type of task, our proxy checker might test your proxy for compatibility by making a series of test requests. If these test requests fail, your task will be marked with ERROR_PROXY_CONNECT_TIMEOUT or a similar error and will be canceled. During the solution process, your proxy also might fail and our API will produce other proxy errors. To learn more, please refer to the FAQ about proxies.

Recaptcha V2 example

Task object

Property Type Required Purpose
type String Yes RecaptchaV2Task
Previous task name: 'NoCaptchaTask'. We will continue supporting old task name forever, no need to update your code.
websiteURL String Yes Address of a target web page. Can be located anywhere on the web site, even in a member area. Our workers don't navigate there but simulate the visit instead.
websiteKey String Yes Recaptcha website key. Learn how to find it in this article.
recaptchaDataSValue String No Value of 'data-s' parameter. Applies only to Recaptchas on Google web sites.
proxyType String Yes Type of proxy
http - usual http/https proxy
socks4 - socks4 proxy
socks5 - socks5 proxy
proxyAddress String Yes Proxy IP address ipv4/ipv6. No host names or IP addresses from local networks.
proxyPort Integer Yes Proxy port
proxyLogin String No Login for proxy which requires authorization (basic)
proxyPassword String No Proxy password
userAgent String Yes Browser's User-Agent used in emulation. You must use a modern-browser signature; otherwise, Google will ask you to "update your browser".
cookies String No Additional cookies that we should use in Google domains.
isInvisible Boolean No Specify whether or not Recaptcha is invisible. This will render an appropriate widget for our workers.
