Here is where things start to get more serious. Captcha requests are meant to incapacitate scripts and bots as they are incapable of solving them. If you’re getting captcha requests, that means Instagram is virtually 100% certain that you are using automation. They are definitely past the point of suspicion.

Solving for it is obviously not too difficult but it can oftentimes devolve into other verification requests where your account gets placed into a 24 hour review or receives a suspension. The chances of that occurring are roughly 50/50 depending on whether or not you had gotten a lot of other warnings in the past.

Severity: 4.5-5.5/10
