Captcha enabled automated testing

Captcha enabled automated testing

We are all familiar with CAPTCHA — acronym for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”. A CAPTCHA test is designed to determine if an online user is really a human and not a bot. Through Captcha, the user is asked to perform a certain task, such as enter the text written in the image or click on the images from a set of different images that match the required criteria. CAPTCHA helps protect you from spam and password decryption by asking you to complete a simple test that proves you are human and not a computer trying to break into a password protected account.

However, for web applications with Captcha enabled, automated testing is a challenge as the step involving filling out the Captcha will become a hindrance in the test scenario. Thus, it is essential to efficiently handle Captcha in test automation to ensure that tests run seamlessly without any bottlenecks.

To overcome this, our PSI developers have integrated a captcha resolution service – Death By Captcha in our test automation using Selenium.
