Posted March 02, 2018 05:24:50Invisible captcha is a new form of online identification that’s being touted as a way to identify those who aren’t logged into your account or the web.
The technique has a lot of potential, but there’s a catch: people who are logged in to your account can’t see how you’ve verified their identity.
As the tech giant explained in a blog post yesterday, this is because the “authentication is performed in the background.
The authentication is not being performed on the user.
The verification is being performed by an outside third party that you trust.”
To make sure you don’t miss out on the new feature, TechCrunch is hosting a contest for you to get in on the action.
As you enter your username and password, you’ll be asked to send in your photo, address, and phone number.
If you can successfully guess that you’re a subscriber, then you’ll receive one of two prizes.
First, you could receive a copy of the app, and you could get a free Google account to use as well.
Second, you might even get a “stretch goal” which you can use to sign up for a new Google account that will allow you to create an account and use Google’s services.
The winner will also receive a free version of the Invisible Captcha app.
The winner will be notified by email, and will have the option to choose between a free, one-time-use Google account, a paid, annual Google account or a lifetime Google account.
The contest runs through March 19, 2018, at 11:59pm PT.
