Remember all those times when you were prompted by any site to type in a certain set of letters and numbers to check if you are human or not? Well, Google is setting new standards and has now successfully ridden itself of the dated captcha system.
Google recently developed a more smarter system that allows people to prove that they are human using tick-boxes, meant to block automated spam software. The smarter alternative called ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA' has now been introduced.
This new system makes use of tick-boxes for humans, rather than a distorted set of texts which you have to decode. Moreover, it has been specifically designed to block spam on the page, while humans can tick the box and carry on with whatever they might be doing.
"On websites using this new API, a significant number of users will be able to securely and easily verify they're human without actually having to solve a CAPTCHA. Instead, with just a single click, they'll confirm they are not a robot," the official blogpost for the same states.
However, that doesn't mean that CAPTCHAs are going away for ever. "In cases when the risk analysis engine can't confidently predict whether a user is a human or an abusive agent, it will prompt a CAPTCHA to elicit more cues, increasing the number of security checkpoints to confirm the user is valid."
