Annoyed by CAPTCHAs?
Current mood: happy

You can get rid of Captchas on MySpace! Captchas are those annoying little codes you're asked to enter when you're doing important stuff like sending messages, posting comments or adding friends.

They are necessary to curb spammers, but they're also annoying and slow you down.

Now you can verify your PC so you'll stop seeing CAPTCHAs while you're logged in on any browser from the machine you verify. You'll need a cell phone to receive the verification code.

Just click here to verify.

A few things to note. 1) This feature is available for US users only. We'll be expanding to other territories soon. 2) If you have multiple MySpace accounts, you'll have to do it for both accounts. 3) You are not signing up for text alerts or any MySpace SMS functions by verifying. Your cell phone is used ONLY to verify your machine and turn off captchas. If you'd like to sign up for MySpace SMS alerts, or if you'd like to be able to update your status via SMS, go here.

You can read the blog HERE.
Now it only works for SOME cell phone providers. I tried to do mine but I use Nextel and even though they were bought out by Sprint I couldn't get them to send me the text...I was bummed. I hate captchas!

Actually you can verify on a friend's phone. The phone is not tied to your account, its just a mechanism to show that a real person verified the machine.

Re: Stupid Myspace Captchas

Well that's cool. I was excited to rid myself of those unreadable captchas, but wasn't too crazy about entering my cell phone number.

Re: Stupid Myspace Captchas

I know because the last thing we need is to start getting myspace spam Worried
Its suppose to be a one time only thing (that they only text you the once) so I guess time will tell.

Re: Stupid Myspace Captchas

I think it's been about five or so days that I entered my phone number on myspace, and I haven't received any spam on my cell. I will keep an eye out.

Re: Stupid Myspace Captchas

I tried doing this with my fake profile for my apps, especially mobsters. But I don't think it works. My account was verified and everything, but I still get Captchas when adding mobbies... Cranky

Re: Stupid Myspace Captchas

oh are you kidding???? That was the whole reason I was going to do it. Did you verify your phone number and all? Man that sucks if that is the case - then why bother. My kids have sprint phones so I was going to send the text to one of them but forget it if it doesn't work with mobsters captchas. Man ....Tom sucks!
