Error message at


Nine times out of ten I get this error: „Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. Please try your request again later.“ when I search something at I suppose it’s because the relay or the bridge I use behaves suspiciously to What’s the real reason of this error? How can I work around it?

This could be because google block exit node or relay with overload for example.

This is a known and intermittent problem; it does not mean that Google considers Tor to be spyware.

When you use Tor, you are sending queries through exit relays that are also shared by thousands of other users. Tor users typically see this message when many Tor users are querying Google in a short period of time. Google interprets the high volume of traffic from a single IP address (the exit relay you happened to pick) as somebody trying to “crawl” their website, so it slows down traffic from that IP address for a short time.

You can try ‘New Circuit for this Site’ to access the website from a different IP address.

An alternate explanation is that Google tries to detect certain kinds of spyware or viruses that send distinctive queries to Google Search. It notes the IP addresses from which those queries are received (not realizing that they are Tor exit relays), and tries to warn any connections coming from those IP addresses that recent queries indicate an infection.

To our knowledge, Google is not doing anything intentionally specifically to deter or block Tor use. The error message about an infected machine should clear up again after a short time.

How did you come to this conclusion?

hello sir, am long term user sir. Already try many ways to use but get troubles about constant disconnections, google misjudging traffic thinking am a bot or sometimes strange timeouts forcing me to several times restart tor or tor browser.
