Google introduced reCAPTCHA v3, it won't annoy internet users anymore

reCAPTCHA version 3 has been launched by Google and it is a complete revamp of the reCAPTCHA technology. Google launched this for the first time in 2007 and it is being overhauled for the 3rd time after is launched.

It was designed to dodge the bots and it was very helpful to get rid of bots. For many, it was annoying, so, reCAPTCHA v3 is designed to reduce this annoyance. This version no longer needs you to click on images of cars or storefronts, in fact, there will be no user interaction.

The user experience will be improved in reCAPTCHA v3 as the need for challenges will be removed, said Google. After the latest update, reCAPTCHA will run in the background to analyze the risk and provide a specific score to the website owners. This score will tell owners about the suspiciousness of a user based on his/her average behavior.

Risk scores will be assigned to the users from 0.1 for bad to 1 for good, and the site admins will be able to decide the website's reaction against these scores. This tool will detect abnormalities by focusing on normal user interaction, and it will be easy to detect bots and abusive traffic, said Google.

reCAPTCHA v3 will give the site owners control and flexibility to use this technology. They will be able to identify the pages that are the instant target of bots and could add the reCAPTCHA v3 to multiple pages.

Not only the site owners, but the users will also be benefited with v3 as the new system will bring ease while interacting with the websites. This technology will be in the testing mode for several months. So, the site owners are going to witness a whole new experience in controlling the abusive traffic and this will be appreciated by the site owners as well as users.
