What is a reCAPTCHA?

A reCAPTCHA is a system for the automated detection of users belonging to Google and making use of the recognition capacities of the latter, mobilized by CAPTCHA tests, to improve at the same time the process of pattern recognition by robots.

In other words, a reCAPTCHA is used to verify that you are a human during a connection to an interface (login) or to avoid “SPAM” on your mailboxes or on your site.

How it works ?

There are three categories of reCAPTCHA including:  letters, pictures and tests with  only one checkbox. Here is how it works.

For letters, the plugin consists of asking users to identify letters. These letters are distorted and misclassified so that robots are less likely to identify them. To pass the test, users must interpret garbled text and reclassify the correct letters in a form field and submit the form.

On the reCAPTCHA image recognition test, users typically see 9 or 16 square images presented. The user must identify the images that contain certain objects. For example, he may ask to identify animals, trees or signs. If their answer matches the answers of most of the other users who took the same test, the answer is thus considered correct and the test is passed.
