As Google begins to phase in v3, it looks like the days of needlessly solving math problems and identifying pictures of street signs are finally coming to an end! While many internet users (like us) are thrilled, we wanted to take the time answer some questions you might have like ‘How does v3 differ from its predecessors?’, or ‘What does it mean for my business?’, and the all-important ‘How does it actually work?’.
What Led to reCAPTCHA v3's Release?
How Does reCAPTCHA v3 Work?
- You can set a threshold to determine when a new user is required to provide additional verification (ex. all scores below .6 are required to enter a code that's texted to a number).
- You can combine the score with your own signals that reCAPTCHA can't access (such as user profiles or transaction histories) to ensure a holistic review of each request.
- You can also train your machine learning models to fend off bots more effectively.
What Does This Mean For Your Business?
reCAPTCHA v3 is quickly proving to be the coveted first step towards truly seamless and powerful site security, and thankfully, it seems to be here to stay.
