About us

At FunCaptcha we fight an epic battle against cyber crime, spammers, scalpers and trolls. Our internationally praised Brisbane based company replaces the much-disliked method that makes users "prove their humanity" by deciphering blurry letters and photos. Instead, FunCaptcha poses a clever 3D visual puzzle that is highly usable for humans, but very hard for abusive programs that crawl the internet, imitating legitimate users. FunCaptcha protects thousands of websites and apps worldwide, gaining testimonials by globally recognised companies. See more by searching for "FunCaptcha" on the web.
