Shadow mouse Uncanny clicker Click really, really fast.
"Well I'll be!"

The exact rate required to earn this achievement has been tweaked multiple times over the development of Cookie Clicker and may be subject to further changes. Currently, the rate is 150/10s, which is difficult to achieve legitimately. Only people with very fast clicking can unlock this achievement (the variable responsible for unlocking this achievement is even called "autoclickerDetected").

To see how fast you are, click here. The link lets you see how many times you can click in 10 seconds. If you score more than 150, you may be able to unlock this achievement without any tricks!

With mouse only[]

Called drag clicking, it is where you lightly press your finger on the mouse, while moving it along the clicking area. If done right, your finger will stutter along the mouse, and click extremely fast, almost guaranteeing the achievement if executed correctly.

Called butterfly clicking, one method of unlocking this achievement is to alternate between two fingers when clicking. This works better with a mouse than a touchpad, because touchpads occasionally detect the different fingers as a swipe and move the cursor across the screen. However, this can be remedied by holding a single finger over the touchpad and tapping it with two fingers on one's other hand, causing the the one finger to move very fast.

Called jitter clicking, another method is tightening your arm muscles while clicking; this can cause muscle spasms, which may allow you to achieve extreme click rates for a short duration of time, potentially easily obtaining achievement due to it only needing 6 consecutive fast clicks.

With other input devices[]

It is possible to click simultaneously with a touchpad and mouse (or any two similar input devices at once, such as two mice), making it achievable on a regular laptop without any changes.

Hardware assistance can be used to artificially multiply the number of click signals sent, although this is considered cheating by some. The game currently has no way to distinguish a 'real' click from one generated by hardware assistance.

If you use a full keyboard (not a condensed laptop keyboard) and Microsoft Windows, you can enable mouse keys to roughly double your rate. To do this, you must press LEFT SHIFT + LEFT ALT + NUMLOCK. Then, simply spam 5 and + on the numpad on the far right side of the keyboard. This has the same effect as alternating between two fingers with a normal mouse.

Many gaming mice have a dedicated double-click button. If you have one, you can spam this button instead of the normal left mouse button to get two clicks per button press.

Using a controller and an input-to-cursor converting program such as JoyToKey, it is possible to bind a click to each joystick direction and spin it, easily earning you the achievement.

Jitter clicking on a Graphics Tablet can trivialize the achievement, though not advised for normal play due to being quite painful.

With software assistance[]

Autoclickers exist which will trivialize the achievement.

On Linux, you can place your mouse cursor over the cookie and execute the following command in a terminal: "xdotool click --repeat 150 1". This simulates 150 mouse clicks using the xdotool program (which has to be installed).

On laptops, if you have a plugin USB or wireless mouse and a right click button, you can click fast enough (on some laptops, the trackpad actually clicks twice if pressed once, also adding up). Clicking with the mouse and trackpad simultaneously, if your laptop allows it, may also work.

You can also enable some scripts or otherwise slow your browser down enough that your natural top speed registers higher than it really is.

You can also open up the JavaScript console and type in (or copy and paste) the following command: 

setInterval(function(){Game.ClickCookie()}, 10);

This will cause your browser to (try to) click on the cookie every 10 millisecond automatically (values below 10 will be forced to be 10 by the browser). If you have a slow computer and click 15 times during a lag spike, once the game speeds up again it will read all the clicks at the same time effectively getting the achievment.

Outright Cheating methods include simply enabling the achievement with a script.
