Know how to fix the CoWin captcha issue

India’s vaccination drive process includes the combination of technology and manpower. Providing vaccinations to one of the most populated countries in the world is a complex task and this is why the government decided to launch the CoWin portal. However, many citizens are unable to book an appointment for the available slots due to the recently rolled out feature which requires a user to enter the captcha. As per the user reports, the CoWin captcha sometimes fails to register or offers the wrong combination. This is why many people want to know how to fix the CoWin captcha not working issue. So, if you have been wondering about the same, then do not worry, here is all you need to know about it.

 

Why did govt launch the captcha code on CoWin platform?
The CoWin slot booking is quite important if you want to get vaccinated in India. However, many techies have planted bots to book slots on the CoWin platform using codes and scripts. This makes it harder for the officials to provide slots for normal people during such emergencies. Nevertheless, implementing a captcha code helps the government to make it mandatory for a human to book slots eliminating bots from interfering.
