SiteGround Anti-Bot system

My host has an Anti-Bot system in place in order to reduce the risk of exposure to brute-force attacks. If they suspect that the IP address being used could be/may have been used for brute-force attacks, then it will be intercepted. It will then show a typical challenge captcha page which looks something like this:

It is safe for you to go ahead and complete the challenge. A successful completion means your IP address is added to a whitelist, and it won’t be challenged again.

There is more information here.
