|A great alternative to annoying captcha forms|
Monday, October 15, 2012
I recently stumbled across an interesting blog on Campaign Monitor’s website. In case you didn’t know, Campaign Monitor are our email newsletter partners who we integrate with to allow VPASP Merchants to create professional looking email newsletters to send to your customers.
The blog discusses two alternatives to using annoying captcha boxes on your website.
We really like the ‘honeypot’ captcha which works by adding an invisible field to forms that only spambots will fill in. The field is hidden using CSS so human users don’t see it while spambots do.
A simple, yet highly effective alternative to annoying captcha boxes.
We will be adding honeypot captcha forms to our next version so you can look forward to an increase in newsletter sign ups as less users are scared off by awkward captcha boxes.
