New Invisible Captcha Doesn’t Require a Click

If you use a Captcha to protect your website forms from bots, you’ll be happy to hear that now you won’t have to burden most of your real users with the sometimes clunky “prove you’re human” interaction.

Google recently released the Invisible reCAPTCHA. This invisible version of the Captcha form tracks a visitor’s interaction with the website, such as how long it takes them to click a button, or whether they move their mouse while filling out a form. If it thinks the behavior is too similar to a bot’s, it will show a traditional Captcha again.

For many users, this means they’ll never have to check a box or select all images with street signs, ever again.
