For about 3 days now, whenever I run JBigwatcher (2.0beta3), the program warns:

(eBay put up a ‘captcha’, to prevent programs from logging into your account. Login failed).

Alert:
Not yet logged in. Snipes will not fire until logging in is successful. Item updating has been enabled, but any features that rely on being logged in will not work.

Error log shows:
Tue Jul 01 21:10:07 PDT 2008: eBay’s security monitoring has been triggered, and temporarily requires human intervention to log in.
Tue Jul 01 21:10:07 PDT 2008: Couldn’t sign in, captcha interference!
====

I have no clue how to make this work and I cannot snipe no more.

Mac OS X 10.4.11 with latest update as of end of June and July 1. Please share your thoughts if you could? Thanks in advance.

Greetings,
Take a look at FAQ #10 for more information about captcha’s.

I tried, not working well, so I change computer, and login at eBay, strangely, proper password did not work, and that ‘captcha’ showed up so I have to type in some numbers, and tried a couple of times, finally I login eBay.

I noticed eBay interface changed on (My eBay) page…… (could that be something to do with this also?)

Immediately, I went to change my password to a long and complicated one.

Well, now that I can login in JBidwatcher and I will try snipe a few things tonight and tomorrow.

*bold*THANKS*bold* for all the help. I love this program that helped me save a bunch on buying on eBay already…. Happy 4th everyone!
