Google introduces No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA

I think most of you are familiar with CAPTCHA. It is basically a simple protection to prevent robots and scripts from accessing website. Users are prompt to read and type in distorted text before accessing the pages. As technology advances, it seems this layer of protection is no longer effective as it can be easily solve and penetrate. Check out the blog post title “Are you a robot? Introducing “No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA”” from  Official Google Webmaster Center as Google introduces a new interesting way to determine if you are a robot or not.

The new CAPTCHA which Google calls it reCAPTCHA is able to confirm if you are a robot or not by just a single click. Although Google claims that there is a high degree of sophistication behind this new method, I still have doubts about it. I suppose this new reCAPTCHA requires some time to really test the effectiveness. Let the hackers around the world do their work and we’ll see if it is really that good.
