Microsoft Edge Is Working On A New Auto-Verify Feature For Android That Skips CAPTCHAs

Today, more and more online users are in search of the best browsing experience out there. And that means skipping out on verification systems that demand evidence of their human existence.

We’re sure you’ve come across the term CAPTCHAs at some point in your online journey and they’re said to engage users in some sort of a task like clicking on traffic lights or perhaps identifying stairs in a given picture.

But who knew that we’d soon be getting salvation from such means as there are more and more advancements in progress that help users take a step back from burdens such as there where they’re forced to validate themselves.

We know Google Chrome has rolled out a new endeavor for auto-verification regarding CAPTCHAs but who knew Microsoft Edge would be following in its footsteps with its own offering for Android.

One researcher was kind enough to share their findings regarding this matter and how Microsoft Edge is working on rolling out a new auto-verify feautre across its Canary channel. After getting approval for activation, this sort of setting gives rise to digital tokens that are similar to cookies. Moreover, such stored proofs may receive access by so many other websites to confirm human existence. And that’s done without the worry of users’ browsing history getting exposed.

The difference here is that webpages could confirm that solely through Microsoft Edge. Furthermore, experts noted how the company is also working on a new Android version for verification called ‘On Device Encryption’. This feature encrypts any passwords that would have been saved locally, right before it syncs that into the password manager.

This rollout is currently in its experimental stage but we could soon be seeing it roll out soon for desktops.

As we wait patiently, we must point out that seeing the software giant putting more investments into Android must be appreciated. Remember, Google Chrome already has a lawsuit looming regarding its famous Incognito Mode. Therefore, this makes way for other leading rivals like Microsoft Edge to come forward and use this period to the best of its ability and rid annoying CAPTCHAs which many are already questioning for so long.

In case you didn’t know, new studies claim CAPTCHAs aren’t really effective at all and bots are doing a better job at solving them faster and with greater accuracy than humans. So why have CAPTCHAs in the first place?
