PlayThru CAPTCHA Alternative: Achievement Unlocked: You’re a Human!

by Lambert Varias

I don’t sign up for a lot of things – one of the many benefits of being antisocial and reclusive! – but when I do, I hate the CAPTCHA part. I know that accomplishing it is very simple, but there are just times when the text it wants me to spell is so mangled that I couldn’t possibly guess it right, making me doubt if I am indeed a person. I’m sure that I’m a gamer though, which is why I like PlayThru.

Even if you’re not a gamer, I think PlayThru is still easier and much more fun to figure out than CAPTCHA’s wavy or blurry characters. And if you can’t figure them out, I’m sure someone will make a walkthrough on GameFAQs. PlayThru is easy to install on popular platforms like WordPress, Drupal, phpBB, vBulletin, and there are also libraries available for PHP, Perl, Ruby, Python and .NET, so you have no excuse not to install it on your website if you have one.

You can try out PlayThru on its official website.
