It would seem that the captcha quiz matrix I had could be as a result of having my VPN location set to Boston USA from being on a USA forum last night which doesn't like european IP addresses.
Turn the VPN off - no captcha quiz. Turn it back on set to UK location - no quiz
Set it back to USA - quiz is back.
But why?
Mystery solved for me at least.

When I experienced it last week I was using my mobile as a personal hotspot as it was to do with reporting a line fault, I wonder if some sort of re-routing affects things.

Because you are more likely to be a hacker when using an overseas IP address. Although it can be a pain we should welcome providers applying better checks to protect us from hackers.

For the last few days I've lost my orange app on my phone. It used to work and now it doesn't.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times, cleared cookies etc but when I try to log in with email add and password it keeps telling me to try again, even though I know both are correct.

Orange works ok on my laptop but not my phone app.

Any ideas please?
