How identify and obtain recaptcha s data
Step 1: Identify that you need to submit s data
The initial step involves determining if the recaptcha you aim to solve necessitates submitting a s data. Failure to submit this data when required results in an invalid token or a high chance of token invalidation. To ascertain if a s data is needed, utilize the captcha detection feature of Capsolver.

Keep in mind that this value changes each time. Therefore, it's essential to scrape it anew before each captcha submission to ensure the captcha token remains valid.
