Add-on Captcha on login?

Doesn't XenForo already require captcha for .com/login/login page?
For every log in attempt? No. Only repeated failed attempts.

is there any addon that forces captcha to every login attempt? If so which one
I don't recall seeing any add-ons that do this. Frankly, it would be odd to do so. Why put a barrier in front of genuine users who are just trying to login?

recaptcha nocaptcha is easy to solve for normal users but hard for bots

But why would bots be logging in successfully? They wouldn't. So a CAPTCHA that all users have to complete to log in would only really slow down genuine and annoy genuine users (even if it is one that's easy to solve).

I just want a way to stop brute force attacks

Failed login attempts already trigger a captcha in an attempt to prevent brute force attacks if that option is enabled. The default, however, is better -- repeated failed attempts will have the user performing the attempts locked out completely.
