I'm sure it will be cracked eventually, like all CAPTCHA's inevitably are, but for now it seems a very tough nut to crack.
I agree, KEYCaptcha is a very tough nut to crack - too hard, I think, and that is a problem in itself!
It may be a problem with my screen size or clarity, but I failed to get it right one time in three attempts
I don't think it would be useful for my (not particularly computer literate) target audience.
You know, my wife could not pass a squiggly-giggly-w(r)iggly-letters captcha 12 times while trying to log-in to her bank out and eventually had to desist.
And she wants to close her bank account because of it.
While KeyCAPTCHA doesn't require neither education (we checked that it is being passed by 4-years-old children) nor knowledge of any languages (to understand a math question, etc.). Though, our geo-cluster on 24*7*365 datacenters over a few countries servers feed KeyCAPTCHAs in a dozen of languages
and support new ones being added by 3-5 a month
KeyCAPTCHA is harder on first use but, I promise you, next times one passes it much faster like a breath.
The point in KeyCAPTCHA is not that it is currently not crackable but that it is easier to develop than spam bot (unlike other antispam solutions) and the pool of captchas as well as the type of captcha can be replaced without plugin reinstallation.
Also, KeyCAPTCHA team monitors spam bots development and activity on protected websites and can replace KeyCAPTCHA pool or even type preemptively.
All other existing antispam solutions are lagging a few steps behind advancement of spamming techniques.
I do not know any other solution providing the same abilities, they just follow behind spamming incidents.
KeyCAPTCHA service is free (well, it is free of charge antispam service, not "free of spam Joomla plugin" as malicious spamming webfarms repost it filling all google results) but subsribers of our fee-based "Personal CAPTCHA" service can create their own captchas from their own images with our on-line designer.
