Captcha Alarm & Solve Captchas
Automatically solve captchas for uninterrupted sharing.
When you are sharing or following automatically, there is a chance you will see the “I’m not a robot” CAPTCHA popup. Closet Tools is smart enough to stop what it’s doing when that pops up.
Now, if the Captcha alarm is enabled (it is by default), a chime will sound when the Captcha pops up. That means you can go to a different tab, go to different applications on your computer, or even do other things in the room and you’ll know exactly when to verify that you’re not a robot.

There’s now desktop notifications! Well, they’re actually browser notifications, but they show up on your desktop. Now you can be notified of a CAPTCHA popup no matter where you are on your computer.
You may or may not be familiar with 2Captcha. It’s a service that allows developers to solve Google Captchas automatically in their applications.
Closet Tools has 2Captcha integrated in the app. That means when a captcha pops up on the screen, Closet Tools can automatically solve it.
It typically takes 2 minutes, but Closet Tools waits up to 3 minutes. During that time, it will chime to let you know that it’s still waiting for a solution, and it will also chime if the captcha has been solved (or failed to solve).
Register For An Account
Instead of providing an API key, you are in charge of signing up at https://2captcha.com and getting your own API key. Once you make an account, you’ll need to add some money to it. The current rate is ~$3 per 1000 captchas. $10 should last you at least a couple of months.
⚠️ If you want 2captcha to be more reliable, be sure to use the ‘100% Recognition’ setting. It’s a little bit more expensive, but it works better over time, meaning you can more reliably leave your computer alone to keep sharing.
Copy / Paste Your API Key
Once you’ve created and account and added some money, copy your API key from your 2Captcha profile and paste it into the ‘2Captcha API 🔑’ field. Now, when you turn on the ‘Automatically Solve Captchas’ setting, your API key will be used to solve captchas.
As noted above, it typically takes 2 minutes or less to solve a captcha. Closet Tools will wait up to 3 minutes for a solution. After 3 minutes, Closet Tools will ask you to solve the captcha manually. It will also play a sound.
Once the captcha is solved, it continues doing what it was doing before automatically.
