Are recaptchas shown for VPNs due to the popularity of the VPN IP being blacklisted?

    I've noticed in browsing I am seeing a lot of recaptchas and websites that won't load when I'm on my VPN. This is a popular VPN, so am I being shown recaptchas/blocks because the ip is blacklisted from too many people using it or is it only because I'm using a VPN at all?

    The former. Those commercial VPN ips are shared between a lot of people and are abused to hell. So you either go with a less popular VPN service, where there's a lesser chance for the ips being blacklisted or you can go with dedicated VPNs too, but those will be 3-4 times pricier than dedicated proxies.
