‘tryAnal essential?’ – 7 strange fails to celebrate the demise of CAPTCHA

Alexis Holt December 5, 2014

As Google announces a simple solution to the sometimes difficult and strange CAPTCHA text boxes, to say goodbye, here are seven times the security measure has failed to convey anywhere near a normal message.

Google announced today that it would replace the CAPTCHA with “No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA” – a simple tick-box which users have to check to say “I am not a robot”.

The search engine giant said: “We figured it would be easier to just directly ask our users whether or not they are robots—so, we did! We’ve begun rolling out a new API that radically simplifies the reCAPTCHA experience. We’re calling it the ‘No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA'”
