The end of Captcha is nigh for Apple devices.
New versions of Apple’s iOS and macOS, Apple’s operating systems for iPhones and computers will reportedly eliminate the need for users to declare they are not robots, thanks to the incorporation of an automatic verification process.
Users will no longer have to identify features in series of pictures, known as Capcha, to prove they are real human beings.
While security is always important, the verification process could also be annoying.
Apple has worked with Fastly and Cloudflare, two companies that operate the infrastructure level of much of the public internet, to build the feature.
It works by allowing your device to send an encrypted statement confirming it’s being used by a human over to the requesting website but the requesting website will not be able to receive any personal information about the user or their device.
In late May a number of security fixes were released for a variety of devices and operating systems because of the discovery of several flaws.
They included fixes for Firefox 100.0.2, an Android fix for an estimated 36 vulnerabilities, including for Google Pixel and Samsung users, Google Chrome and the video conferencing platform Zoom.
