Are You a Human captacha integration

  1. I HATE captcha, and so do my users. I'd really really really love to see GF integrated with Are You a Human as an option as well as recaptcha. I think this would be huge for a user generated content site I have been working on.

    I plan on looking into it myself, but the feature request is of course for some native integration.

    P.S. GF is the best premium plugin out there!

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I checked it out and frankly, I don't think it's any improvement over a standard captcha field. It looks like it requires the flash plugin to run and also the "game" requires a certain amount of dexterity and mouse control that might not work that well for some folks.

    I'll agree that Captcha's suck in general - some more than others but I've yet to see a really good alternative presented.

    Nonetheless, we'll be happy to look at it further and consider it for the future.

  3. Hi Kevin,

    I'm the founder of Are You a Human, and I'd love to help make it available for integration. The version you saw is flash, but we check for compatibility and show either canvas or flash. Publishers can choose which is the default. On mobile, we only use canvas.

    We've seen some good conversion uptick on registration pages that use our PlayThru and users prefer it 3:1 over recaptcha. We're always working to make it better, if there's anything you think we can do better. We'd love to hear it.

    I didn't realize that this wasn't "human captcha" which is common for other variations too. Having integration of other providers like AYH would be good. I'd like to have an option for this and even to make one yourself. The one that works best for me is a question rotation. For example, "A pet that has fur or hair is which of the following?" A: Fish, snake, dog, bird. On my sites I have them rotated between 3-4 questions and can add as many as I'd like.

    Sounds good - I just noticed that Really Simple Captcha Plugin also "natively" integrates with the software. It's downright amazing and has completely changed the way my site will operate intelligently. Great work guys.
