Google just made it easier to prove you’re not a robot.
If you’ve every signed up for an online account or bought something online, you’ve probably encountered a CAPTCHA prompt, where you’ve been asked to type a portion of distorted text to prove you’re not a spambot.
Turns out, Google’s research recently showed that today’s artificial intelligence (read: robots) can solve those CAPTCHA prompts with 99.8% accuracy. So, Google is introducing “No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA,” which allows users to just check a box to prove they’re not a robot.
How? Google developed an “Advanced Risk Analysis” algorithm which considers a user’s interaction with the CAPTCHA before, during, and after the time that they click it.
Websites can now start using Google’s new system on their own sites.
