The combination of Escape from Tarkov and Captcha has given many users quite a headache while logging in or switching accounts. However, good use of the security system is finally here.

Escape from Tarkov will also look to tackle the cheaters taking undue advantage of the Flea market in the game. Any suspicious activity in the marketplace will now trigger the Captcha security protocol. Three unsuccessful Captcha attempts will trigger a 5-minute ban from trading.
