What is Captcha?
CAPTCHA stands for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart." In simpler terms, it's a test that helps us determine whether a user is a real person or a computer program pretending to be one. You may have encountered these tests as distorted letters, image selections, or simple math questions. These tests are easy for humans to solve but difficult for computer programs, providing an extra layer of security.
Why Do We Need Captcha?
In an era where information is valuable, it's crucial to maintain high levels of security, especially in the legal field where sensitive information is often exchanged. Some computer programs are designed to impersonate real users for unauthorized activities, like gaining access to accounts and data. Captcha serves an an initial barrier against such unauthorized activities by enduring that only genuine human users can proceed.
Captcha is not just a feature we've randomly included; it's an industry-standard security measure. By incorporating Captcha, CounselGO aligns with best practices in cybersecurity, ensuring that we're doing our utmost to protect you and your data.
- Enhanced Security: Captcha acts as a security filter, only allowing real people to proceed.
- Data Integrity: With fewer unauthorized activities, you can trust that your data remains uncompromised.
- Reduced Spam: Captcha tests help in minimizing unwanted submissions in interactive sections of the platform.
Impact on End Users
For the standard CounselGO user, the impact of encountering a Captcha test is minimal. It takes a few extra seconds to complete the test, which is a small price to pay for the added layer of security it provides.
However, we are committed to ensuring that Captcha does not become a hindrance for users with accessibility needs. Features like audio Captchas are available to ensure that everyone has equal access to the security benefits.
