You should scan your laptop for malware

That wouldn't be it. More likely to be a privacy browser extension causing Cloudflare to trigger if he's on his home connection. If you attempt to spoof your UA or anything like that Cloudflare gets very mad

CF also flag tones of public VPNs and proxies that aren't from residential ranges, You can probably guess why. 
Im pretty sure google also force captchas if your IP has been sending requests that looks like bot activity these days too.
Wait no actually never mind I think the google thing is just based on browser cookies

No, it depends on what your security settings are set to in CloudFlare. Raidforums firewall is just setup very strongly to avoid bots

Also what does google Captcha have to do with this? Cloudflare uses hcaptcha, which is not based on cookies//IP Reputation

If your browser seems suspicious, they check your headers and stuff like that, they don't rely so heavily on just blocking IP Addresses. Just like how Cloudflare doesn't block people on tor (unless the owner of the website sets it so they're blocked, which a lot do sadly)

No it's bad ip reputation that triggers those. So Tor exit nodes, selling bandwith through packeteer, stuff like that...

It’s not only bad IP reputation, there is a number of factors.

I mean even so if you are getting captchad often, is it that annoying?

I did it 3 times when I logged in today, it's like less than 10 seconds and keeps out bots, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Agree to disagree I guess but it's not fingerprinting in this case (sometimes it is though).
