Hilton has been using Captcha for few months trying to prevent further account takeovers and usage of HHonors points by unauthorized third parties.
Google has now updated the Captcha by adding another layer over the image test. You must first click a box that “I’m not a robot” before you are shown the distorted text/numbers (or maybe taken directly to your account.
You can access Hilton’s web page here.
Well. When I clicked the “I’m not a robot”, I was then given the easy number test.
It is unbelievable that Hilton HHonors has not been able to resolve this account compromise issue and continues to use Captcha on its website.
I could understand it as a temporarily measure, but it has now been going on for months without an end in sight.
