Is 2captcha legit – 2captcha Review

Legit, Make Pocket Money, Not recommended / Thursday, January 4th, 2018

I am all for typing jobs that you can do from the comfort of home and one main kind of typing job online that you will find, is solving captcha. Have you ever tried logging into a website where you were asked to decipher a series of letters and/or numbers from a picture and retyping them in a blank space?

This is a captcha.

Many websites use them to prevent robot access to their website. These websites actually PAY someone to solve these captchas and one such company who takes care of that is 2captcha. I found mixed reviews about 2captcha and so I decided to try it for myself.

So, is 2captcha legit? Let’s find out.

At A Glance

Name: 2captcha


Owner: ??

Training: Yes

Tools; Yes

Support: Yes

Success Stories: ??

Recommended?: No

But before I get into the review, let me share with you the way that I make a passive income online that’s going to be worth your time.

===> REAL Online Business Training HERE – With PROOF <===

My First Impressions

Just looking at the homepage, I was not very impressed. Clients are paying from $0.50 to get 1000 captchas solved. Well, it is good from the perspective of the client but it didn’t look good from the perspective of the worker. From that perspective, 2captcha was obviously not gonna be paying workers more than what they charged.

The first question that shot to my mind was “How much are they actually paying their workers for 1000 captchas if they are charging $0.50 for those same 1000 captchas?” Another question that shot to mind was “That’s 1000 captchas that we are talking about, not 100. How long would it take me to solve 1000 captchas?”

I almost didn’t want to go forward with an account because it looked like such a waste of time to me, but I still did for the sake of this review and to be able to convey the most factual information to you. By the way, it is free to sign up with 2captcha. They don’t ask for any credit card details.


… I was redirected to my dashboard. It was very clean and easy to navigate. I also noticed an affiliate program, under which I could refer people. So if they signed up under me and worked, I would be getting paid commission from 2captcha. I liked that part, because there is potential to make more money. I just needed to figure out if it was worth it.


The training is short and straight to the point. You are given around 40 captchas to solve, for which you don’t get paid. These come with instructions on how to properly solve them, such as, when to include a space, how to recognize an “i” from “I” from “1” and to recognize when the captcha is case-sensitive.

Then, you need to pass a test by recognizing more captchas, after which if you pass, you get to start working and making money. To be honest, the training part wasn’t too bad. Each captcha loaded pretty quickly, as opposed to some complaints online about loading times, but that could be only for the training part.


There aren’t a lot in regards to tools that you would need in order to work with 2captcha. But I have found two ways that you can make money here; first, through the embedded working platform and the other is by downloading and installing their software, called 2captchabot, where you supposedly would be making more money.

Another aspect that could be described as a “tool” would be the Statistics page. This page gives you insight into how many people are working in real-time. This is important because it determines your earnings. The more people that are online solving captcha, the less you get paid. So before you actually start solving anything, I found it is best to check the Statistics page. I have found less workers online generally in the early morning, after lunch-time and very late at night.

Working for 2captcha

Through the embedded workstationIt took a long time to load, sometimes as long as 20 seconds, while I was just waiting and staring into space. It was nothing like the training. When a captcha does load, you only have about 10 seconds to solve it and type it in, else your account goes into hibernation. It does not load anymore captcha for you to solve until you actually click on “START WORK” again.

A good feature is that you could even log in from your smartphone or tablet, and still work on-the-go through their mobile interface.

On the top right-hand corner of the screen, you will find two things; your mistakes and your reputation. Mistakes is pretty self-explanatory. It gives you the number of mistakes that you make and when you click on the number, it takes you to the list of mistakes you committed. Your reputation is basically the total number of captchas solved. It has nothing to do with earning potential. One difference that your reputation will make is, as soon as you reach 3.000, you can choose to only solve ReCaptcha, which will raise your earnings.

Note: 1 solved captcha = 0.001 reputation. Which means that you need to solve 3000 captchas to reach a reputation of 3.000.

Through 2captchabotThe work on the software is actually very different from the embedded interface. Here, you will be recognizing items in a group of pictures, mostly in relation to street signs, storefronts, cars and roads. It seems easy, to just click on the picture where you find what they are asking you but what I found really annoying is that the “Please try again” message appears even though I make sure to click on the correct images. It comes up multiple times and then approves.

I did find that the potential to make money on 2captchabot is a little higher because you can work on two at a time, but I still haven’t earned even $1 having solved 1300+ overall captchas.

Note: I solved around 1300 captchas 3 days in a row, over the course of 3 sessions, each session being around 2 hours in length. (Total working hours = 6)


Most of your questions are answered on 2captcha’s FAQ page but we all know that sometimes, that’s not enough. Sometimes, we just need to get a human involved to solve our problem.

What I like…

… about the support here is that it is easily accessible through the main dashboard. You can also ask for help on their Facebook page, where I see there is a fair amount of involvement.

What I don’t like…

… is the fact that there is no live support. So you may be stuck until they decide to answer you and they don’t actually tell you when you can expect to get an answer back. Some people have reported they had to wait at least 10 days to get any kind of response from their support team.


As I mentioned above, there is no fee to work for 2captcha. However, there may be fees associated with cashing out your earnings. There is nothing out of pocket for you to pay. The fees come out of your earnings directly when 2captcha sends out the payment. The percentage will vary depending on the medium / company you use as a means of cashing out.

2captcha uses the below for withdrawals:

– Webmoney

– Payza

– Perfect Money

– Bitcoin

… and some other companies that I have never heard of before. Paypal is nowhere to be found. I like to see Paypal as a payout gateway though.

The minimum you have to accumulate to cash out is 1 USD.

Success Stories / Feedback

Yes, there are people that have gotten paid from 2captcha and this is literally the only good thing about them. Apart from that, you are only able to see complaint over complaint.

Mostly, the complaints are;

– doing a lot of work for too little pay

– slow loading times

– banned accounts due to mistakes made in solving

– “try again” messages on the software although correct images were selected

Here are a few of these feedbacks.


Is 2captcha legit? Yes.

Do I recommend it? If all you’re looking for here is pocket money, then this is the place to do it. But keep in mind that it will take some time for you to make money with this platform.

All the reviews / feedback from people who have had the experience of working with 2captcha have proven to be true. Sure, it is an easy way to make money but it is not easy money. I worked 6 hours for $0.77.

Just look at the picture below, beside Balance. This does not even pay for my daily cup of coffee. In my opinion, you can do much better things with 6 hours of your time daily. I would even prefer working part-time on minimum wage than work on solving captcha for this company.

Okay, now you might tell me that you are a stay-at-home parent, you’re disabled or that you’re a full-time student and need something that will work around your schedule and personal needs, not the other way around.

  1. Being a web developer in the past, I had used recaptcha which just like captcha prevents robots from accessing certain parts or all of a website. I had never heard of 2captcha before reading this article. I thought it was an update to captcha, but I see I was wrong. Reading your article, I can understand why you wouldn’t recommend it. Definitely wouldn’t boost your income quickly. Thanks for the article!

    1. Hey Kevin. Thanks for dropping by. I do highly recommend to stay away from this company, not because it is a scam, but because it is not worth your time. There are many more opportunities online that will pay way more than entering captcha. 

      – Reyhana

  2. Hi there,
    Many thanks for this awesome review on this interesting topic and this was something that I had in mind to research sometime soon.
    I wa intending to include a captcha of some description on my posts as I knew that it would be a safety feature at least and offer some form of protection from the online bots.
    I was’nt aware that there was a 2nd version of this feature, but after reading your review, I am much wiser.
    The fact that there is a revenue stream attached to this poses some questions, but after reading the comments that you have inserted, I can see why its questionable.
    Many thanks for this great post
    Well done
    Cheers PB

    1. Hey Phil. Thanks for dropping by. Using Captcha is great for an added safety feature, to prevent unwanted access to your website. Yes, there is a revenue stream attached and people are not making much from solving them. At this time, I personally am looking into creating my own captcha somehow, instead of using these companies, because although they are very cost-effective to the blogger / online business owner, there are people that are getting paid next to nothing for their hard-work and their time in solving these captchas. The market needs to change. 

  3. I’m glad I stopped by your website and read this detailed review about 2captcha. I’ve read other reviews that were all positive. It seemed as though they were pushing me to sign up. As an affiliate marketer, I understand the need to make commissions but I only promote quality products that come with money back guarantees. I appreciate your awesome article on 2captcha. Now I know to stay away from it.


    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jack. I have also seen those other positive reviews and they are positive because this company actually pays, compared to so many companies and scams out on the internet. Having this job is better than nothing but if you are someone who wants to make real change and improve your life, 2captcha is not the answer. In my opinion, you can do much better with 6 hours of your daily life than waste it on this. 

  4. I always find it interesting how sites like 2captcha even get anyone join them and spend their valuable time doing stuff like this. I mean, 50 cents to fill in 1000 captchas. How long would that take to make 50 cents, let alone the monotony of it all. I’d be smashing my head through my computer monitor after a while.

    I’m always on the lookout for extra ways to make some money online, but I think I’ll give this one a miss. You’ve written a really good review of it though.

    1. Darren, I completely agree that this is just a waste of time. I do understand that some people are desperately looking for ways to make money online and for sure, this is better than having nothing at all. However, I believe that this cannot be done long term and people still need to be actively looking for better opportunities while making a few dollars a day with the system. 

      Thanks for reading this review and I wish you a lot of success with your online ventures.

  5. This is interesting! I did not know that one can actually earn money by solving captchas because I usually only do them when I sign up for some membership program online or to confirm my identity. I do agree with you that doing 1000 captchas for a mere 50 cents is totally not worth it. But once again, wouldn’t it be cool if you could make a full time income just by solving captchas? haha

    1. Hey Rab. Thanks for dropping by. I agree with you, that it would be really cool to make a full time income just solving captchas. I wish they would make it more worthwhile by increasing the pay. But again, any work that is too easy to do is either a scam or the pay for it is too low. It is an easy “way” to make money but it is not easy money.

  6. Great review. I had the same experience with 2captcha. More work and less money. After all wasting of valuable time. Even it is impossible to make one dollar per day at 2captcha.
    You have done a great job by reviewing this. Though it’s not fraud, but it’s fraud in my opinion as it kills your time and energy. If anyone is looking for internet job then only one legit solution is there. That is affiliate marketing.
    Thanks for the review.

    1. Hello Himbru. Thanks for dropping by and for sharing your experience with 2Captcha. You are right. It is definitely not a scam and it is one of the few websites online that actually pay out like they say. What I also like is that there is no false advertising with them. The only thing is that they don’t pay well. 

      Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make money online. Although it does require a lot of time, hard work and patience, this is a system that will provide income for a long time to come. What’s best, you can work how much you want and when you want.

      I am very happy that you approve of the review, being someone who has tried out 2Captcha.

  7. I really love your website! It is great. I was reading every part and I learn a lot. I am a newbie, I just started to build my website.
    It has an excellent information about all the tools that you can use to build your website.
    Before I found WA, I read a lot of sites and most of them tell you that you are going to be rich fast and without any problem. I like that you talk about scams because there are a lot! Unfortunately.
    Thank you for all the information. Excellent website!

    1. I’m glad you like my website, Annie.

      That’s so true! I was just like you, when it came to finding a legit website where I could learn to make money online. I always bumped into those ones that promised riches and they always ended up being a scam.

      Wealthy Affiliate is not one. It uses step by step approach so you can learn to build a sustainable business online. That’s not just me saying that, but you can find so much proof and even talk to the successful people on there as well! 

  8. Hello,

    Thanks for your review of 2captcha. I always see their code on some websites to check if you’re not a robot, but I could have never guessed that they were exploting workers. What?! $1 for a lot of work??? That is beyond my understanding. I do believe that people should start their own business with their own ideas and not try to work for others. Peace!

    1. Thanks for dropping by!

      I totally agree with you! This is too little pay for so much work! And it will take you HOURS to get a $1 earning. You’re so right when you say that people should start their own business and do work that they enjoy doing. I always say, that if you work for somebody else, you will build their dream. If you work for yourself by opening a business, you build your own dream.

  9. You had my attention and a possible easy way to make some money but what you did was great, walking me through the process of signing up and showing screen shots of how much you have to do and what you actually make.

    I have often wondered about what people can do to make money when they are home bound for many different reasons. My mother has had a stroke and my father takes care of her 24/7 so it would be nice if they could make a little extra money.

    I thought it was great to see another opportunity that you believe is a much better option. Thank you.

    1. Hello Rick and thank you for dropping by. 

      I’m glad you like my article. I can certainly understand that there are a lot of people who are bound to home because of their medical conditions. I know that they would like to do much better than what they CAN do. 

      I’m so sorry to hear about your mother but I can say that she is lucky to have your father who looks after her and loves her a lot! 

      2Captcha is not the best way to earn money online, because it requires for you to work for pennies on the hour. I cannot just sit here and do nothing while people waste their time working like that, for companies that exploit other people.

      That’s the reason why I wanted to share Wealthy Affiliate because it has changed my life in a way that I could never have foreseen. It is really the number one online training platform for making money online.

      If you need any help or have any questions about the program, let me know!

  10. Hi Reyhanna,

    Great review of 2captcha and completely agree with your recommendation. I haven’t done the math but earning $0.13/hour less the electricity to use your computer system seems like working for free.
    There are other ways to earn money working online and you mentioned one of the best, Wealthy Affiliate. However, if you don’t want to get involved in your own website, etc. then there are things like doing surveys, searching the web, reviewing websites and apps, to mention a few popular ones. And they all pay more than $0.13/hour.


    1. Hi Ed. Thanks for dropping by and for leaving some recommendations. 

      I totally agree, that its like working for free. Total waste of time and effort. 

      Wealthy Affiliate is definitely one of the best training platform that teaches you to make money online. It may not be for everyone, but as long as you work hard and stick to it through thick and thin, then you definitely will see success.

      In my opinion, doing surveys are better than entering captcha, because at least a 10 min survey could pay you $0.50. But that would mean that you are earning in the whereabout of $3 per hour, which does not seem any more worth it than $0.13. 

      What really turned me off about surveys, is that you start off okay and then halfway through the survey, because of one of your responses, you are no longer eligible to continue. They thank you for your time but don’t pay you for the time that you spent answer the previous questions.

      So if you spent 5 min on a survey, they won’t pay you even the $0.25.

  11. Hallo there Reyhana,

    I have been considering the idea of joining 2captcha and working them but based on the information I have gotten about it here, I have started doubting their reliability.

    I certainly don’t want to waste 6 hours for just $0.77 knowing that I may not get help with my problems in good time from the support. I think I am going to pass this one for now.

    1. Dave, I think that 2Captcha is a legit company, but it is definitely a waste of time to be working for them, solving Captcha. It is not going to even HELP you pay some bills, let alone bring you closer to financial freedom.

      That’s why I am recommending the the platform that taught me everything that I need to know about making money online, which is Wealthy Affiliate. The training is top-notch and if you give it your all and enough time, you will see results. 

  12. This is a review that I can take to the bank? Seriously although they may pay to do the work sure is way to much time involved for all they more are paying. People are not going to be able to make a supplemental income from joining this site. Not that it is a scam far from it because it does pay just way to little to consume so much of my valuable time.
    Thanks for taking the time you invested here to let everyone know this is not worth signing up for.

    1. Hey Susan.

      That’s right! Though 2Captcha is legit, it will take too long to make some serious money. You can’t even pay for your everyday coffee with it, let alone earn a part-time income.

      And what’s more, is that most online work or jobs that are legit, require NO training, special skills or any kind of education, and thus, will pay you miserly, just like 2Captcha. 

      So in my opinion, you are better off creating your own online business with the help of Wealthy Affiliate, where you can eventually earn a full-time passive income, from work that is done only ONCE. It won’t make you rich overnight, but it is totally worth it when you start making serious money down the road.

  13. Hey thanks for this article I have always wanted to know more about this. I love the way you all the information is easy to find and thanks for looking out for us. I really thought this would be paying more but I guess I will have to put in the work myself.
    great Job!

    1. Hi Jesus. Thanks for dropping by. Captcha is definitely helpful in some cases and although 2captcha is a legit place for you to work and to make some extra pocket money, the amount of money that can be made here is just too little for the amount of time that you need to put in.

      The long load times either definitely don’t help either. If you are looking for something that will be worth your time in the long-run and to ear passive income, I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate.

      Glad you liked the post! 🙂

  14. Yea seems like this is like another survey paying website. Not much money to be made like all other platforms like these. Cool little thing though.

    There are definitely good ways to do business online like affilaite marketing, ecommerce, freelancing etc. but all of them take work and have their own problems so be careful when looking for ways to make money online.

    1. Hello Kevin. Yes, although 2Captcha is legit, they do NOT pay a whole lot, not enough to even pay your daily cup of coffee. Your time is valuable and spending it in this way is just useless, in my opinion.

      Affiliate marketing, ecommerce and freelancing are very good ways to make money online, but you do need to work on them and give them time to grow. You have to learn how to become an authority. However, they can be very lucrative and return on investment can be VERY good.

      That’s why I recommend them! I am personally an affiliate marketer and I find that it works better because it is kind of a merging of ecommerce and freelancing; you get to write / blog about great products that you can promote to make commissions off the sales.

      Easy concept, but takes effort and needs time.

  15. I’ve heard about this program somewhere and thought it was a hoax. Your review just proves that there are still a lot of data entry job out there that will make you work a lot and pay measly for the effort. Six hours for only 77 cents? That’s even cheaper than a part-time at McDonalds!

    1. It is legit and they do pay, but like you mentioned, definitely not worth the time that you put into it.

      It might actually be better to take up a part-time at McDonald’s or work for any other hourly pay on minimum wage rather than work for 2captcha.

  16. Can u suggest some other work from home website besides affiliate marketing .. i am a student and need something to do during my free hours .

    1. Hi Rudraksh. Thanks for your visit to my website and for reading! 🙂

      The best way to make money online for ANYBODY is affiliate marketing, specially for students and beginners in the online world. But if affiliate marketing does not work for you, then there is NO online business that will work. That’s because affiliate marketing is the easiest place to start and everything else requires more work.

      At this point, if affiliate marketing does not work, the best other alternative that I can give you, is to try transcription. Transcription is what will pay you MORE than what other online jobs will pay you. Don’t waste your time with surveys, solving captcha or these other micro-tasks. They will bring you less than $1 per hour, whereas transcription could bring you $5 or more per hour, depending on the company you get approved with.

      With Transcription, you have to be good at listening to different accents and be able to type it accurately. Some places you can apply are Scribie, Transcribe Me and Rev.

      I hope this is helpful. If you do have any other questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.


  17. Thanks for the article. 2 captcha it`s a legit site and it`s a good way to start earning online but there are many other ways like affiliate marketing, writing articles, investing, cloud mining etc.

    1. Hello Serrio. Thanks for visiting and reading my review on 2Captcha.

      I agree that it is legit but I don’t think it’s a good way to make money online. Companies like this pay too little to even earn pocket money. If you sit and work with 2captcha for 2 hours, you won’t even make $1 and they are so quick to suspend your account if you make too many mistakes. I think 2Captcha is a big waste of your time.

      On the contrary, if you already have a job and want to work on something on the side that will bring you a BIG source of money for the long term, the best way is to work on an online business. I recommend affiliate marketing for beginners because MOST of other online businesses will either cost more or are just too much work.

      If you can’t handle affiliate marketing, then you’ll know that you can’t handle anything else. If you’re ready to start learning about affiliate marketing, I recommend the program that I have been using and that makes me passive income on a daily basis, called Wealthy Affiliate.

  18. thanks for the information but when i tried registering for wealthy affiliates, i was told that my country is not allowed. i’m from Nigeria.


    1. Hello Samuel.

      Thanks for visiting. Unfortunately, due to a high level of spam and fraud from Nigeria, Pakistan, Ghana, Philippines, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Egypt, Morocco, Kenya and India, residents of those countries are not able to join Wealthy Affiliate for free. However, they can still join directly as a premium member for $49 and try it out for 30 days. And they can cancel any time they want before their next billing in case they don’t want to stay.

      There are no cancellation fees and no strings attached. Where the free membership would be limited, joining as a Premium member directly to try it out let’s you fully experience the platform so you can make a better informed decision.

      Hope this helps!
