What's the update?All Atom website's have been updated to use Google's latest V3 reCAPTCHA.
Have you ever been asked to confirm you're not a robot, or asked to identify every square containing a bus when using a website? If you have, then you'll have experienced Google's reCAPTCHA tool. It's designed to prevent bots submitting spam forms on a website. This is not only annoying for the website owner, but can actually be dangerous as bots constantly look for ways to spam and infiltrate a website's security.
Google constantly update their tools to protect against new threats and ensure their spam filters are as good as they can be. Their latest V3 tool gives the best protection to your website, whilst also providing the best experience for the website user.
Google's new tool monitors the website user's behaviour to assess whether they might be doing anything malicious or whether they a simply a curious potential customer. No longer will the user have to confirm they're not a robot or jump through a series of hoops before being able to submit their enquiry. This means you are more likely to receive genuine enquiries whilst still receiving the best protection online.
