Google New reCaptcha using PHP – Are you a Robot?

For the past several years, Google’s reCAPTCHA has verified a user’s humanity by forcing you to decipher warped, nonsensical text. reCAPTCHA protects the websites you love from spam and abuse.

Recently Google introduced a simplified “captcha” verification system (video) that enables users to pass the “captcha” just by clicking on it. This API utilizes an Advanced Risk Analysis engine that is capable of discerning between users and bots. The best part is that the interface has been simplified to a checkbox, a vast improvement over reCAPTCHA’s alphabet soup scramble.

However, CAPTCHAs aren’t going away just yet. In cases when the risk analysis engine can’t confidently predict whether a user is a human or an abusive agent, it will prompt a CAPTCHA to elicit more cues, increasing the number of security checkpoints to confirm the user is valid.
