Google Removes Captcha
Google has finally decided to get rid of one of the most annoying things on the internet, the CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart). You no longer have to squint to answer CAPTCHA to get to your email account or other sites.
CAPTCHAs which is a test to confirm the user is human has been implemented by webmasters
to prevent cyber attacks in which bots overload a website with traffic. Others such as Ticketmaster have used it to prevent ticket tout software.
Google bought reCAPTCHA which is one of the biggest providers of CAPTCHAs in 2009. In 2014 it introduced the No CAPTCHA, a little check box that knows you're not a robot based on how you tick the box. Robots, for example, are more likely to click right in the middle of the box.
Google will now be implementing "Invisible reCAPTCHA", there will no longer be a box to tick. What it do is monitor how the internet user interacted with a website like how they clicked the "submit form" button, or how they have moved the mouse around, as well as past data Google has on that user. It simply analyzes the user's “browsing behavior”.
Invisible Captcha will be done automatically which will make surfing the internet more streamlined and convenient than it used to be.
