We can't do without Captcha on website forms, but nobody actually likes using it and every website owner will have received the odd tetchy 'is this really necessary?' email from users with a low frustration threshold. ReCAPTCHA 2 was released at the end of 2014, and it's a substantial improvement on the old eye-strainingly distorted text: all that most users will have to do is tick a box, while some will be presented with a challenge that involves clicking on images of, say, cats or trucks. See this blog post for more details. No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA is in use on several Zipfish sites already, and we'll continue to replace the older type on others over time. If you'd like your site upgraded to No CAPTCHA immediately, please get in touch.
