NoMoreCaptchas

Description

NoMoreCaptchas is enterprise-level spam protection for sites of all sizes.

Put an end to those annoying Captcha codes that slow down or even send away your users! NoMoreCaptchas authenticates human beings and blocks bots based on the one thing that can never be faked – their behavior.

Key Features:

  • Protects registration and login pages from spam and bot attacks
  • Automatic protection for login, registrations and comments
  • Compatible with Buddypress, ContactForm7, Contact Form by BestWebSoft, WP-Members and Gravity Forms
  • Built-in dashboard so you can see it work and keep track of who and what is trying to access your site
  • Free for personal use and registered charities
  • Subsriptions for businesses starts at $4 per month

Developed at the University of Oxford, NoMoreCaptchas uses e-DNA (Electronically Defined Natural Attributes) to determine if a user is a human or a bot. Bots are sent away. Humans are welcomed into your site – without any puzzles, roadblocks or error-prone black lists to worry about – and without any content scanners that read your private messages before you do!

You can monitor your protection with a dashboard right on your site to keep track of who is being let in and what is being blocked.

NoMoreCaptchas is free for personal use and for registered charities. For companies and other groups with needs beyond the personal blog or small site, we offer subscription-based services. For more information, please visit http://www.NoMoreCaptchas.com

Requires PHP 5.3 or higher and WordPress 3.0 or higher

What makes NoMoreCaptchas different?

Our technology was developed at the University of Oxford when our founders where there as cryptography researchers. It verifies humans and blocks bots based on user behavior. We don’t use puzzles or tricks. Our method can’t be hacked or spoofed. It’s passive (no one needs to do anything) and always on, so you are always protected. Plus it’s self-learning, so as time goes on and bots change their tactics, our technology changes to keep blocking them.

We also don’t use blacklists and whitelists to cross check users. Those databases are as fallible as the humans who maintain them. They can fail to block new bots and even keep out humans whose sites or IP addresses have been taken over without them knowing it.

What we use is a user’s e-DNA, or Electronically Defined Natural Attributes, to determine whether the user is a bot or a human. Since even the best bots only poorly mimic a few human attributes, we detect them and block them from your site. And users don’t need to do anything but be themselves, so they don’t slow down and your engagement goes up.

Why not just use a CAPTCHA code?

Let’s start with the reason that people hate them and then move on to the fact that people typically get them wrong. And then ask yourself, why would you ask a human to prove they’re human? SHouldn’t you inconvenience bots instead?

Stanford University researchers conducted a great study on CAPTCHAs use and found that over half of all users either leave as soon as they see a Captcha-style puzzle or fail to get it right.

We don’t believe anyone can afford to send over half of their users away, so we came up with something that is simple and reliable – and does not require users to do anything but use your site.

If I’m using the free version, do I still have to register?

Yes. In order to ensure your site is protected, we must open access to our cloud-based service to your site. In order to do that, we need to know you want to connect to us. Please take a moment to register. It really takes just a minute or two!

Is there a free version?

Yes. You can install and use NoMoreCaptchas for free for personal use and for registered charities and enjoy protection for up to 10,000 bot attacks per month. That is plenty for most small sites.

If your site is not for personal use, NoMoreCaptchas is free for the first 30 days. After that, or even if you run a personal site and desire a greater level of protection and want more functionality in your dashboard, we have a variety of subscription services available. You can read about them at http://nomorecaptchas.com/ #!/pricing

Is NoMoreCaptchas compatible with BuddyPress?

Yes. We have tested it up to the latest release and it is compatible.

Which pages does NoMoreCaptchas protect?

NoMoreCaptchas prevents spambots from registering or logging in to your site as well as commenting. It also protects your ContactForm 7, Contact Form by BestWebSoft and Gravity Form forms.

In other words, it protects the pages where you would normally place a Captcha code.

How do I set up protection for my contact forms?

For Gravity Forms, Contact Form by BestWebSoft and Contact Form 7, it’s automatic. If you use something different, please let us know and we can look into putting it in our development queue.

Is NoMoreCaptchas an accessible (508-compliant) solution?

Yes! Whether you’re in the US and need a solution that’s compliant with Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or just want to be sure your website can be used by anyone who doesn’t have perfect eyesight – even the blind and visually impaired – NoMoreCaptchas will help you help your users get in the door.others with disabilities are able to use the site without issue. Most Captcha solutions are very difficult for those with visual impairments, and the audio solutions are a clumsy workaround at best.

Since NoMoreCaptchas doesn’t require users to do anything but be human, the path is made equally accessible to everyone.

How can I tell if NoMoreCaptchas is working?

Seeing NoMoreCaptchas in action is believing, and there’s no better place to see it happen than your Dashboard. With version 2.0, your dashboard is located on your site under Dashboard>Settings> NoMoreCaptchas.

I’m still getting spam, what’s happening?

If you just installed NoMoreCaptchas, there are a few things that could be happening:
* This bit of spam was in the queue and your site pushed it live after NoMoreCaptchas was installed. Queues tend to lag up to 48 hours behind what goes live. Check your pending comments and users to make sure you don’t have a queue built up.

  • You may not have registered. If you believe you did (or if you’re a subscriber, if know you are up to date on your payment but are not listed as active), please contact us at support@nomorecaptchas.com

  • If that’s not the case, then make sure your License Key was not properly entered into the control panel. Please be sure to copy and paste it directly from the email we sent you. If you no longer have your License Key, please contact us at support@nomorecaptchas.com so we can send you a new one.

What do I need to install NoMoreCaptchas?

Installing NoMoreCaptchas is easy. All you need are the plugin zip file and your License Key.

To get your License Key, register your site with us at http://nomorecaptchas.com/#!/register. As soon as you do, we’ll send you your license key.

Registering allows us to create a unique key for your site that will make your NoMoreCaptchas keeps spam bots away and only allows humans through the door.

What does your name mean? What are biochronometrics?

Bio means life, chrono means time and metrics are measurements. So we measure life signs over time to determine whether something is a bot or human. That time usually takes about 500 milliseconds and starts while the page is loading. Humans never notice a delay and their behavior lets them in. Bots’ behavior blocks them out and even the best bots cannot fake being human.

Who shouldn’t use NoMoreCaptchas?

Spammers, scammers, bots, trolls and other Internet bottom-dwellers really should avoid NoMoreCaptchas. We’re out to make their lives difficult, so they really don’t like us.

Reviews

Locks you out of your site admin

Great idea and it should be the ultimate solution. However, I have been locked out of my site with the error
‘Too many log files to process, please delete or remove older authentication/ verification logs by visiting Log Options’

The ‘Log Options’ link goes to /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=xb_nmc_config&tab=logging_page. However, the same error results when you click this. Therefore, I am locked out of the admin of the site. Also, the problem isn’t resolved by renaming the plugin to disable it.

If / When I find a solution, I will post what I did on my site. For now, I am removing this plugin from all sites where I have installed it.

Excellent

Works like a charm. I am trying to stay as open as possible to new users, and I was getting a lot of spam registrations. This stopped it!

sort of doesn't work

just tried this out and it seemed to work until now it just gets some error and i cannot even log into the admin site.

a few suggestions:

1. don’t make this thing work on the admin log in by default, please to avoid situations like mine where you literally are wasting my time as I will now have to ssh into the site and figure out where i need to go in and rip out this plug in

2. the default graphic is way too big, they charge double if you want to get rid of it – this should be obvious from the pricing page, i don’t think most people want such a huge ugly graphic.

3. make sure it actually works before letting the public use it – i literally have an almost plain vanilla fresh install of WP and this is not working properly, why would I pay for that.

great support and fab plug-in

This was incredibly easy to install and it has solved my spam problems for Contact Form 7 completely.

I did have an issue with how the messages were threaded in my inbox, but I brought that concern to the developer and within 24 hours they fixed it.

Thanks so much for the great plus-in!

Fast Login

I downloaded the plugin and it works really good. Keeps out spam robots at the initial point of entry on my site. It’s also very passive in that it doesn’t waste a users time trying to figure out a blurry captcha.
