reCAPTCHA is one of many "free" systems that are seemingly helpful and innocent, but are actually part of the #Google data-collection ecosphere.

If you are a #website / app #developer, consider using tools & APIs that do not collect user & system information.

If you must use a particular system that integrates with reCAPTCHA or similar, please provide them feedback that you would like alternatives to Google services.

Users, choose to solicit sites that value your #privacy and user data.

The WP story on the CIA's secret ownership of Swiss crypto company Crypto AG provides some insight on why they are nervous about Huawei. Not because Huawei will have backdoors, but rather than they won't be in control of them.
