Wcrypt and tools like it | Proxies-free

As a user of websites that use file hosts (K2S, etc) I’ve come here seeking understanding why webmasters use such a tool as Wcrypt? I totally understand the need to protect links from easily being taken down etc but from the point of view of a user it is not helpful having to enter a captcha for each individual link if say you want to download 100 files. I’m not a technical person but is there not a better solution?
