Hcaptcha check on login

Expected behaviour

A user has to prove easily that he/she is a human. But this part is very time consuming. Is there any other way to make the login easier?

Actual behaviour

User can not login to ownCloud system because of bad/wrong selection.

Steps to reproduce

Server configuration

Operating system:

Web server:


PHP version:

ownCloud version: 10.4.1

Storage backend (external storage):

Client configuration

Client version:

Operating system:

OS language:

Qt version used by client package (Linux only, see also Settings dialog):

Client package (From ownCloud or distro) (Linux only):

Installation path of client:


Please use Gist (https://gist.github.com/) or a similar code paster for longer

Template for output < 10 lines

  1. Client logfile: Output of owncloud --logwindow or owncloud --logfile log.txt
    (On Windows using cmd.exe, you might need to first cd into the ownCloud directory)
    (See also http://doc.owncloud.org/desktop/2.2/troubleshooting.html#client-logfile )

  2. Web server error log:

  3. Server logfile: ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log):


to be honest, I do not understand your question. Do you want to implement a captcha for ownCloud logins or are you using an ownCloud instance where a captcha is required? If the latter is your issue you cannot do nothing, when this is not a cloud you are running by yourself.

dear cortho,

thank you very much for returning back to me. My question in short form is that "Is there any solution other than captcha while signing in to owncloud system?

In long form : When a user uses the link provided by us to download his/her data from the cloud system user faces with a login page. On this page the user uses uses credentials (User ID and Password) to log in to system. Am I right? On this page, I mean on the page user sign in to cloud system there is a captcha verification system to prove that the applier is a human not a robot.

My quesiton is that is there any other solution we can use for this verification other than captcha?

I hope it is more clear now.

Thank you very much.




@dervisali Hcaptcha isn’t part of the default ownCloud product. I’d assume it was added by your organisation. Other login methods can be configured from admins. You could also login with OpenID Connect or use various 2-Factor (2FA) login methods.


Hi Michael,

Thank you very much for your reply. I will forward your reply to my colleagues from IT Department who are responsible from ownCloud.
