What is CAPTCHA?

CAPTCHAs are used to identify whether an internet user is a human or a computer program (bots). A CAPTCHA is an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Distinguish Robots from People." On the web, CAPTCHA tests are quite common.

A brief history of CAPTCHA

In the year 2000, websites have increasingly been accessed by computer programs (bots). This poses a security risk for websites. A new cyber security tool called CAPTCHA was created by Carnegie Mellon University computer science graduate student Luis von Ahn and his advisor Manuel Blum to address this issue.

Max Levchin, PayPal's co-founder and head of technology, helped commercialize this first use of such tests when PayPal used them as part of a fraud prevention strategy in 2001. They asked humans to "retype distorted text that programs are unable to understand."

The CAPTCHA journey has been quite interesting. If you wish to learn more about CAPTCHA history, please visit the following link.
