Firstly I'm not very technical. I use Tor browser because zScaler blocks IE and Chrome and I don't know any other way around it. Google access wasn't too bad until I upgraded to the latest Tor browser. Now every Google search returns the message:

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. Please try your request again later. Why did this happen?

I have read about why this happens, but I am wondering if there is a way around this. I tried the New Identity feature to no avail.

Look forward to your answers

    Long story short: No, not with Tor. – cacahuatl Feb 22 '17 at 0:52
  • Don't use GOOGLE at all... They track your every move online. Use DuckDuckGo or StartPage. Those Search Engines DON'T track you. – user16544 Mar 3 '17 at 20:44
  • Use searx.me or searx.at. It's better than standard Google. – AnonA Mar 5 '17 at 2:53
  • You can use google through a proxy web site like whoer.net/webproxy. This way tor does not get banned. – Artur Klesun Apr 1 '18 at 12:11

Enable the "High" Security Setting in the TorButton, go to https://ipv4.google.com, enter you search engine, and you will get a much simpler captcha (only text), and your search query will most likely work. (from my experience)


Rather than using Google, you can use DuckDuckGo which has a Tor hidden service so no exit nodes are used: 3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion
