    Why as a member am I unable to use remember me login password. Each time I come here I have to go through conditional capture. When I last change my browser begining of June I was exempt until I aked it to show all content.
    I use conditional captcha myself as a protection against email bots,but would have thought the hoops members and their hubs have to dance through are more than enough security.

    I'm sorry.  I really don't understand what you are saying/asking.

    I think what he's saying is that each time he wants to log in he has to retype his password because HPs remember me does not work.

    If I am right check out this link;

      That makes sense.  Thanks for the link.  I never use that feature and didn't realize it was related to HP.  I always assumed those things were browser- or operating system- related.

      Thanks Cardisa you are almost there.Sorry to both you and Aficionda Iwas tired and annoyed when I wrote the question.I like you have many logins and passwords and those I don't use regularly I store in a digital vault so I can get as and when needed.
      My problem with the hub page login is the conditional captcha in my view it should not be needed for merely logging into your page.Perhaps for other data but as members I feel we have given enough of our selves and should not be fustrated by yet one more hurdle.

        I understand your frustration!  Again, the conditional captcha for sign-in is not something I understand.  Are you signing in from a public computer perhaps?  I guess I've already answered my own question, because I don't think you would try to use a remember-me feature if that were the case.

        It may be that your best bet would be to contact the Hubteam directly and ask what is going on.  If we're lucky, they will see this thread and shed some light on the topic.

          Do you normally answer your own questions.Yes it would be great if the Hubteam picked up on it, as direct communication with them seems to go unanswered.

            lol big_smile  Depends on the day and how much coffee I've had!  big_smile lol

            I know that in some other threads people have discussed problems that arise when a person uses a public computer (which, as I indicated, I don't think you are doing now) OR when they initially sign up for HP on a public computer, even if they are using a private one afterwards.  Could that possibly be a part of this situation?


            Again, I understand this is frustrating.  There is a great deal going on at HP now, and there may well be hundreds (maybe even thousands) of direct communications they are trying to answer in as timely a manner as possible.

            Since I appear to be one sucker willing to keep this thread going (and that increases the chances that others will see it and add their own wisdom), I'll try to suss out more of what's going on, okay?  Just trying to get information to help figure this thing out...

            You wrote, in your original post, that the problem started a few weeks ago when you changed your browser and then only after you asked it to "show all content."  What does that mean, to "show all content"?

            smile  I hope your fellow Hubbers can help get this problem solved! smile

                If you mean the monstrous thing that makes you try and decipher distorted letters and numbers, no I do not. Since it frequently takes me ten or more attempts to succeed and usually makes me cry (literally!) while I do so, I would not have been able to use this site on a regular basis with such an obstacle to each log in.

                  You have hit the nail right on the head.It does not reduce me to tears yet. But does fustrate me and put me off using the site.
                  thank you write angel.

                  Thank you I thought I was the only one having trouble with this captcha hurdle.

                    No I thankyou. As you may have noticed this thread has been running for 4 day's,and it was I who felt that it could only happen to me. Could you tell me which browser you use if you don't want that's fine.But could you read tell me what ideas you have had to deal with the problem,and did you write to HP team and was their answer relevant.

    I saw the captcha thing a little while ago when I accidentally clicked on "sign up" for an account, instead of "sign in."  I really believe that if you are seeing it on sign-in, you have some kind of glitch, and I'm hoping the staff will see this thread and help figure out what is going on - or explain it to those of us who don't know why you would be seeing it upon sign-in.

    I have never seen a captcha box on Hubpages.

    1. Aficionada profile image86
      Aficionadaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I saw them on the first few Hubs I published.

      When I send a message through the "Contact ____" link on a Hubber's profile, there is one.  (At least, I'm pretty sure that's where it is.)

      And then, as I noted above, when I clicked on the "sign up" link, instead of the "sign in" link, I saw a captcha box.

        Sorry it didn't but it was a thought.Also strange that IE9 should question if I want to veiw all content.Though clicking that option only changes the captcha box entry.
