Hey @Suvarna. The main purpose of captcha is to avoid automation and to confirm that it's a human being that is working on the webpage. You can not get the code.

Yeah, I totally agree with you Ramya, the captcha's are used in the first place to restrict any kind of automation bots automating the login of any website. They are used as an additional security layer while logging in to a website or application.

Hi Suvarna, captcha is created this way that you cannot automate it. So its not possible to capture the captcha image for gmail login using Selenium.

I tried using Tesseract OCR (Optical Character Recognition) java API..It works in breaking a text from a normal image but while trying to capture text from gmail captcha image it's not reading properly..You may check below youtube link for more details
