Website requires CAPTCHA when using Webroot WiFi Security


When certain secure sites check your login location and it's in a substantially different geo-location from your normal IP address, they may flag the login as suspicious and require additional verification, such as a CAPTCHA. This may also occur when a site is trying to determine if you are visiting using a VPN and is adding an additional layer of security for those users.
