Understand how Privacy Pass helps decrease a visitor's frequency of captcha and how to enable it while using Cloudflare.


Privacy Pass is a Chrome and Firefox browser extension that provides a better visitor experience for Cloudflare-protected websites.  For instance, a visitor IP address with poor reputation may receive a Cloudflare captcha page before gaining access to a Cloudflare-protected website.  After a single captcha page is solved, Privacy Pass generates tokens for use with Cloudflare websites to prevent frequent captcha.  Privacy Pass generates 30 tokens for each solved captcha.
