    I believe there are too many IP addresses for reCaptcha Google servers for Google to give them all a domain name. Also Google will probably serve you the one fastest for you, not necessarily the closest. Finally, any google server could serve you captchas. I could be wrong.

    Also a website you visit often will probably redirect you the same range of IP addresses they installed/programmed/registered.


    So you failed the Turing test? Stop acting like a robot 🤖 😉

    More seriously captcha tries to detect automatic patterns.

    What Google considers automated traffic:

    • Sending searches from a robot, computer program, automated service, or search scraper

    • Using software that sends searches to Google to see how a website or webpage ranks on Google

    But if you get it almost all the time it could also be because:

    • you're using a proxy server.
    • an IoT device of yours is spamming the web
    • a browser plugin is misconfigured
    • your computer has a malware/virus
    • misconfigured firewall
    • your browser has a strange signature
    • you're a developer and an infinite loop marked google so much it remembers you, ...

    And many more reasons...

    I found the problem.

    For some reason I had a service active on my network settings, I erased the service and I got a Laval IP address.

    Thank you @Idefizz you helped me with some clues.
