What is this CAPTCHA thing anyway?


You've seen it before, the dreaded CAPTCHA test. Sometimes it's really difficult to tell what those squiggly letters are meant to be, and sometimes it is hard to tell if it's a street sign or a billboard! What if all of the squares are street signs?? If the test is too hard for me, am I a ROBOT??

 Captcha

A CAPTCHA test is a really important security feature to help protect your database from being flooded with data from other computers called 'Robots' or 'bots.'  These computers scan websites for fillable forms and submit false information. Since a computer is filling out the form, it can potentially submit hundreds of forms in a very short amount of time; filling your database with useless data quickly. 

CAPTCHA means: Completely Automated Public Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart - It is meant to confuse a 'bot' by creating a situation where the computer cannot parse the information presented like the human brain can. With the CAPTCHA in place the 'bot' cannot complete the form - keeping your database clean and safe!

Recently, we've added a feature called reCAPTCHA that uses the latest CAPTCHA technology. Check out this page for setup instructions or give us a call for assistance.
