Hi,

Your weird captcha with rolling animals really freaks me out. 

1) It's UNPRECISE. I think I've chosen a right angle, but in some cases captcha doesn't think so - and in some cases you can't roll it precisely to 0 deg, you have just, say, -5deg and +4deg as options

2) It's takes TOO MUCH time. Why should I do weird things with 3 animals, and only then know, that I've rotated wrong the first animal?

3) It's UNCONVENIENT to use. Could you, at least, add possibility to rotate with arrow keys?

As I think, it's completely idiotic and non-standard solution that misleads users.

PLEASE, remove that freaking captcha, or people will start hating you!

The captcha acts like it is really entertaining my struggle. I was logging in when it showed up, and ask me to rotate the animal pic. I thought I've got it right, but then I found out that there are 5 of it in a row. After about a minute rotating all of them (in fury), I submitted the puzzle and it said that ONE OF THE ANIMALS was not rotated correctly. I need an additional minute to redo the puzzle again. Some of the pictures was always several degree off.

The most annoying thing is that those arrows are supposed to be on the opposite side, so it would be easier for people to relate to clockwise-counterclockwise moving directions.

Greetings from November 2020. I've just encountered 9!!! animals. I wasted at least half an hour on that, and as soon as I finally completed the puzzle, I went to the forums to check who else is annoyed with it. Good to know I'm not alone in that view.

The new feature that shows you puzzles when entering Dropbox is ridiculous. It makes it difficult to enter Dropbox while providing ZERO BENEFITS to people with 2FA. Also, sometimes it just doesn't work and prevents you from using Dropbox. 

This is absurd, useless and annoying. I personally will leave Dropbox if this is not removed soon.

I don`t want to get a catchap security logging. Via web in chrome it appears only in some computers. My email is yahoo, so I think I cannot login with google or apple. Is there any way to avoid the catchap. I assume that there is less security.
