Topic: Google Search Thinks Epic Is A Robot

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

Re: Google Search Thinks Epic Is A Robot

Did they ask you to answer a captcha?  A bit irritating we know. 

That happens because Epic automatically routes your request via https/encrypted connection AND over the proxy.  This protects your search from being tracked (assuming you're not logged into Google). 

Google gets a lot of bot requests, so particularly because you're routed over a proxy they want to confirm you're not a bot.

Unfortunately we don't know a way around this that still preserves your privacy.

Yes on captcha

I will just use other search like http://ddg.gg

Thank you for the fast reply.

Re: Google Search Thinks Epic Is A Robot

Yes, ddg works and no captchas from what we've experienced.     

You can also use the built-in epicsearch.in -- there are also blekko.com and startpage.com in terms of other search engines that respect privacy.

Google Search working today without Captcha,  alok  did you trying something different, because it is working good.
