MMW 5.0.5 image lookup causing Google "Unusual Traffic" Challenge

Post by Jimmersd »

I've run into a problem today. After having updated to MM 5.0.5.2695

While updating the artwork in my MM library I tried to surf the internet and Google returned a Captcha challenge. Now I cannot use Google to search. Each time I am challenged, I answer the captcha and it is replaced with another captcha.

Super frustrating. I seem to be locked out of using Google.

Google eventually cleared the unusually activity suspension. But now I'm a little worried about using the app to update my files this way.

The team is working on this. This may include switching to alternatives randomly or increasing times between lookups.
