CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a challenge-response test in computing designed to differentiate between human users and automated machines (like spambots). Websites commonly use CAPTCHAs to thwart automated bots from executing specific actions, such as form submissions, account creation or engaging in malicious activities.
