Captchahuman.azurewebsites.net is a type of software that targets different browsers like Chrome or Firefox, aiming to swarm them with ads and basically turn them into a platform for online advertising. Ultimately, Captchahuman.azurewebsites.net earns money for its developers as a result of the exposure to the ads that the targeted users are subjected to.Although seeing that your browser has suddenly had some of its elements (such as the homepage address, the search engine tool or the toolbar buttons) altered without your permission and that your screen is being spammed with different banners, ads, page redirects and pop-ups may be a bit scary and lead you to believe that your computer has been attacked by some nasty malware infection (such as a Trojan horse, a worm, a spyware program or a ransomware cryptovirus).
If these are indeed the only symptoms that you are seeing in your browser, then know that your machine is likely not in any immediate danger. The aforementioned symptoms are actually an indication of the presence of a browser hijacker on your computer.
What is Captchahuman.azurewebsites.net?

This, however, is not to say that you should be perfectly fine with the fact that there is a hijacker in the midst of your system. Though relatively harmless in and of themselves, browser hijackers are still seen as potentially unwanted and that is not only because of the irritation that they are known for causing but also due to the uncontrolled nature of their advertising campaigns. As we said earlier, some of the ads may be sketchy, obscure, obscene and even potentially risky.
