Introduction

This Captcha is meant to simplify the Captcha experience for users of your website. Instead of the complication of trying to interpret the characters presented by a Captcha mechanism, this Captcha simply asks you to slide a button from the left to the right resulting in the SUBMIT button being activated for use.

Currently, it is designed to work only with the "Contact Us" form as this is the most likely to be used by BOTS in sending you SPAM.
