You can download the latest version, v1.1.0 and update the product, it will fix the issue.

The main concept of this product is to prevent brute force password attack and any kind of non-human automatically trying to login via the HTML form.

Currently, vBulletin's Human Verification system only supports these type of actions: Register, Post, Search, Contact Us, and Recover Lost Password. So there won't be a way to hook Login action using vBulletin hook system.

For your question, here is the full process of how this product works:
  1. User logging in;
  2. The product captures reCaptcha check value from the login form and send to Google server;
  3. Google checks and return the 'score' value to the product;
  4. If the score is less than the defined 'human' score, we assume this is either not human or an unsafe traffic;
  5. Do the provided actions (eg. redirect them to another URL).

So when the user is treated like a bot, even if the username/password combination is correct, their login will be rejected and being sent to another URL (if you choose that), making the board a little bit safer.
