    Recently when I’ve tried to log into our church website, I’ve occasionally been asked to complete a simple addition sum. Sometimes, however, in my haste to get into the website, I’ve clicked <Return> without putting in an answer to the sum. The odd thing is that it still lets me into the site……..

    Hi Ken,

    That’s Jetpack trying to protect you; if there’s been lots of failed logins, it will automatically add the captcha for a while.

    Why it’s letting you in without the number, though, I don’t know. I just tried it and it worked for me too, is a bit odd.

    First line of defence is to do all your updates. If it’s still doing it after that and you’re concerned, you could put a different plugin on to do the same job – there are several out there.

    But I probably wouldn’t worry if it was my site…maybe I’m just being a bit too laid back, I don’t know!!

    Hope that helps. Please let us know how you get on.

    Thanks Rebecca. Trying to login to this site just now, I had to go through a different type of captcha. Firstly, I had to identify commercial lorries, then pies, then pizzas………..the mind boggles 🙂

    The mind does indeed boggle…
    But…did you succeed in logging in eventually?!

    And have you resolved the captcha problem?
