What is CAPTCHA Solving?

CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart) solution is the process of employing automated technologies or human labor to resolve CAPTCHAs. The purpose of CAPTCHAs is to stop automated bots from gaining access to internet resources. Typically, they present a visual or cognitive barrier that only a human being can solve. Machine learning algorithms, optical character recognition (OCR) tools, and human laborers are only a few of the methods for resolving CAPTCHAs. Some websites reward or compensate visitors who correctly complete CAPTCHAs, providing an incentive for human employees to work swiftly and effectively on the tasks. However, overcoming CAPTCHAs can also be done maliciously, such as to automate hacking or spamming attempts.
