Google’s Invisible reCAPTCHA | GRAYBOX

The new reCAPTCHA algorithm is now able to analyze user web browsing data and detect habits without requiring dedicated interaction.

Setting Up

For starters, Google actually requires you to register with them in order to use this feature. You may register at  Google Recaptcha just in case you haven't already done so. Otherwise, you may login using your existing Google accounts.

Next, you will be prompted to choose the type of Recaptcha suited for your site as shown below.

You can also configure it with the current Security Preferences under Advanced Settings as shown below.
