When typing the captcha for human verification on a mobile device, text completion is allowed on the input element which makes this already annoying (but necessary) task more annoying.

Here is a link for turning auto-completion off.

Isn't the input box generated directly by the reCaptcha script? – animuson Sep 23 '12 at 6:43
Still then, some jQuery magic could change that input box? – Arjan Sep 23 '12 at 7:20
@Arjan: Still seems like something they should complain directly to reCapctha about. I mean, the example one on their website has spell-checking and auto-completion set to off in the HTML, so they're obviously aware of the need to do that. – animuson Sep 23 '12 at 15:36
Strange: the problem doesn't occur on – Martin Delille Sep 23 '12 at 18:04
You're right, @animuson. Even more: the HTML actually is <input style="..." autocomplete="off">. (And the same page on Mobile, right?) – Arjan Sep 23 '12 at 18:55
If the mobile device is iOS, you might need autocorrect="off". – awe Jan 7 '13 at 7:37
