I am using Safari running in macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 for browsing the Web. I am trying to sign up to a website that requires reCAPTCHA identification. Safari has ad-blocker enabled and therefore blocks it.

How do I disable this? The web-page says:

(Captcha will load here (please disable Ad Blocker)

where the CAPTCHA is supposed to be.

  • @Mark - that's not a valid close reason. That would be an answer to the question being asked. – Allan Aug 31 '18 at 16:27
  • @Allan no as it is the op saying that so is part of the question and changes it significantly – user151019 Aug 31 '18 at 18:02

There is no ad blocker built into Safari. You most likely have a 3rd party ad-blocker extension installed.

To disable it temporarily, open Safari → Preferences, go to Extensions tab and remove the check in front of the ad-blocker extension. (You may have a different ad-blocker extension installed than shown.)

  • The website for reCAPTCHA is blocked. Could this be why it isn't loading? (no adblocker extensions) – Famro Fexl Aug 30 '18 at 19:51
  • Where is the website blocked? Please clarify. – Nimesh Neema Aug 30 '18 at 19:52
  • I am not sure of the name of the website but I do not have access to it as administrator privileges are reprimanded and only specific sites may be allowed by higher authority. Do you happen to know the website reCAPTCHA is hosted on? – Famro Fexl Aug 30 '18 at 19:59

    I'd advise you to seek assistance with the network administrator. – Nimesh Neema Aug 30 '18 at 20:01
