A Fun Captcha Alternative – PlayThru

Captchas are still the standard to verify that the user performing an action (like filling forms) is a real human but not a bot.

PlayThru is a free and different alternative to other standard captcha solutions by asking users to play a very short game rather than guessing the scrambled letters (which is also like a game but “so” less fun).

The games are simply drag ‘n’ dropping items to the right places depending on the questions asked.
