Google's reCAPTCHA has evolved from distorted text, to street numbers, to "I'm not a robot" tickboxes and, most recently, to their new invisible system. Google has announced the first reCAPTCHA Android API as part of Google Play Services.
Google's reCAPTCHA is a free service that protects website from spam and abuse. reCAPTCHA uses an advanced risk analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to keep automated software from engaging in abusive activities on your site.
The company is also bringing its bot-fighting programme to Android and the mobile version will launch with "Invisible reCAPTCHA", meaning websites will be able to tell you are not a bot automatically.
"This new API also lets us experiment with new types of challenges that are easier for us humans to use, particularly on mobile devices. Early adopters, like Snapchat, WordPress, Humble Bundle, and several others are already seeing great results with this new API," added Shet.
reCAPTCHA Android API is included with Google SafetyNet, which provides services like device attestation and safe browsing to protect mobile apps. Mobile developers can do both the device and user attestations in the same API to mitigate security risks of their apps more efficiently.
