Washington: Internet search giant Google is reportedly doing away with the annoying 'CAPTCHA' that forced users to confirm they are humans by typing in barely legible words and numbers.
The service will now be replaced with a single click feature on sites that use Google's reCAPTCHA service.
The company is now introducing a new API text where users just have to check a box that says, “I'm not a robot,” reported Tech Crunch.
It said the search engine giant decided to trash the old Captchas because they weren't that good at keeping robots at bay. Moreover, with today's technology, robots could solve Captchas with 99.8 percent accuracy.
For now, websites have the option to choose either to stick to the old experience or switch to the new API.
The old Captchas will now only appear when Google's algorithms are unsure if you are indeed human.
The new API text or reCAPTCHA is already live on a few websites including, Snapchat, WordPress and Humble Bundle .
