Google has now brought a much awaited solution for the ‘Captcha Problem’ naming it ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA’! On many sites while inputting some information, to proof you are not a bot you had to enter some mixed numbers and letters combination into a box and many times you had to enter it multiple times especially on mobiles. Now Google has simplified it by introducing ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA’.
The new ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA’ feature is a simple yet secure solution and instead of asking to enter some mixed numbers and letters to prove you are a human the websites will ask you mark the checkbox true if you are not a bot and it will verify like it is shown below.
The new API introduced by Google will take the advantage of improvement in the area of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Google with the help of Advanced Risk Analysis is solving this problem by observing the behavior of the user and deciding if it is bot or a human. The advancement in this area was also necessary because distorted text is now solvable and with almost 99.8% accuracy, more accurate than human! The Google Blog post describes the API as :
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.
Mobile users who affected mostly by the CAPTCHA evil will be able to proof themselves as human by getting visual challenge which will allow them to click on an appropriate image only. However, if the Advanced Risk Analysis method does not feel you are human you will have to enter CAPTCHA again.
Google has shared the details on its website on methods of using the API as well. Sites like WordPress and Snapchat have already adopted the new technology and are quite happy with it.
