re: CAPTCHAs aren’t for security, they’re for preventing bots from for example creating a ton of accounts or spamming a contact form.
 

Actually, CAPTCHAs are also used for sign in processes in some services. Discord for example takes this approach. And it provides security ... KIND OF.

If you have a script/bot hammering sign in page, you could protect it with CAPTCHAs. The whole point of CAPTCHAs is to prevent bots/scripts.

 

I never said anything about sign in processes.
