Why can't bots check “I am not a robot” checkboxes?

This is an interesting thing to know that it is quite a complicated task to click on that tiny checkbox. I will tell you why the bots cannot check on the- I am not a robot checkbox. So, it was Google which started the computer within the computer to run the checkbox. Yes, it’s surprising but true. This virtual system works on the language of Google which is encrypted. However, encryption isn’t simple. This happens when you protect a program with passcodes and to decode the passcode, Google has a language that has a key. With the help of the key, you can reach the program.

So, now let us know why the bots cannot check the checkbox. See, there is a difference in the movement of the mouse when you move it and when the bots move it. The difference in hovering is predicted by the reCaptcha system of Google and it helps Google in deciding if you are doing it or it is a bot. The ReCaptcha system of Google is aware of the movement of the mouse and while you hover on the- I am not a robot checkbox, your little movement, while you hover, is captured by the predictive movement of Google. This movement decides and analyzes with the set of data it has collected if you are a human or a bot.

Another reason why bots cannot check the checkboxes is that they are also looking for the way you scroll to the box vs. how the bots do it. The computer programming of Google understands the movement and scroll with the javascript and they can know if it is done by the bot.

The time is taken by the person to check the checkbox also makes a difference, if it is too fast; it is definitely done by a bot. When you check the checkbox on your own, you also need to fill some more information, there can be three to four items that you might need to check, however, a robot is faster than a human and it can do the work within seconds that is far beyond the capacity of a human.

So I can hope now that the above explanation is good enough to let you know as for why can't bots check I am not a robot checkboxes.
