We love No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA!  Of course, we love any tool that helps our clients sort out bots from humans, but this extension is so easy to setup and use, and so customer-friendly that everyone involved is benefiting, except those pesky robots.

But when time is of the essence, they can also be quite frustrating for our clients’ customers.

Like just about everyone else, we have experienced the frustration of not being able to correctly identify the letters and numbers hidden in a Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA).  We certainly understand the need for CAPTCHAs, or something like them.  After all, part of our business is providing efficiency for our clients, in this case by eliminating automated posts.  CAPTCHAs are pretty good at frustrating bots, one of their primary purposes.  But when time is of the essence, they can also be quite frustrating for our clients’ customers.

Google has provided us with a better mouse trap.  It’s called No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA.  Businesses love it because it only requires customers to battle one of those CAPTCHA pictures if there is some suspicious activity detected.  Generally, the customer only has to check a box verifying “I am not a robot.”  That’s great!

As we went to deploy No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA, it was even better than we had hoped! In normal forms, it is simple to switch. And for clients running form builders, like Joomla RS Forms, it might be as simple as a new dropdown choice.  What a timesaver!  Simple.  Easy.  Efficient. And that means more leads.

 No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA and RS Forms captured our hearts.
