CAPTCHA is being phased out by Cloudflare, American web infrastructure and website security startup that offers content delivery network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security, and distributed domain name server services. Although CAPTCHAs improve the security of internet services, the corporation claims that they come at a price.
According to their findings, a CAPTCHA test takes an average of 32 seconds to complete. There are 4.6 billion Internet users worldwide. Assuming that a typical Internet user sees one CAPTCHA every ten days, a fairly simple back-of-the-envelope calculation equals 500 human years wasted every day. All for us to demonstrate our humanity.
Instead of the 32 seconds to solve the CAPTCHA and prove that you are truly a human, Cloudflare has introduced Cryptographic Attestation of Personhood, which it claims takes only 5 seconds and requires only three clicks to complete the verification. Cloudflare will begin with trusted security keys including the YubiKey family, HyperFIDO keys, and Thetis FIDO U2F keys.
When Google stated that they will begin charging for reCAPTCHA last year, Cloudflare switched to hCAPTCHA. On the Cloudflare Blog, you can learn more about the reasons for the change as well as the distinctions between the two forms of authentications.

The code repository platform stated that it intends to eliminate passwords in the future and that adopting security keys is a vital step in that direction and can assist developers in securing themselves against inadvertent exposure, account compromise, and malware now.
