The Google Ads policy on hacking will be updated around mid-July to prohibit advertising sites for products or services that intend to bypass or "crack" captcha tests. By extending this policy to include captcha crackers, we aim to ensure a positive user experience and help advertisers protect their websites and web forms from spam and automated bots. This change will apply to all countries. After the new policy goes into effect, the relevant policy page will be updated to reflect this change.
