ReThink: Web Security

We all hate them. Those annoying boxes that prompt us to “enter the following characters into the box below,” the characters which appear to have been scrawled by a two-year-old. Known as CAPTCHAs, they are designed to stop spambots from infiltrating secure systems by “proving” that the user is actually a person and not a computer program. However, their irksome qualities are coming to an end, thanks to rethinking being done by Are You a Human. Now, taking part in making the web more secure is fun, because Are You a Human uses games to prove your humanity instead of presenting you with intelligence-insulting, undecipherable script. It’s one more way innovation is improving our world, one booted CAPTCHA at a time.
