KeyCAPTCHA Unique Technologies:
* Instead of guessing symbols, our CAPTCHA offers visitors to complete an easy interactive task.
* If KeyCAPTCHA hasn't been solved correctly, page refreshing doesn't take place that allows the user not to fill in the form repeatedly. It occurs since there is an initial checkup of CAPTCHAs in the KeyCAPTCHA servers before sending a filled-in form to the protected web server.
* Our CAPTCHA also can be used even if your hosting provider blocks all outgoing connections.

1. Register on and log-in to our site
2. Add your site URL to a Site list.
3. Follow the CAPTCHA installation instructions in our Wizard.

To upgrade KeyCAPTCHA plugin you have to uninstall the previous version.

Just Want to Share My Experience
1.Spam is bothering me via virtuemart ask product email to my blackberry.
2. Try Keycaptcha plugins for J1.7 and it work within minutes, but unfortunately the plugins for J1.7 doesn't support VM 2.0.
3. Thinking the way to stop the email spam, and try to open ticket support at keycaptcha to add support for VM 2.0.
4. Keycaptcha support team respond my request the following day and ask about the url that be the gate for spam. I'm impressed it's a fast follow up.
5. I give the url to them and the following day.... Voila.. new version is available with support for virtuemart 2.0
6. I upgrade with the new version and then Virtuemart 2.0 Product Ask Question is already has keycaptcha on it.
7. Thank you Keycaptcha support team

I like this plugin. I had few problems with settings, but now is all ok. Thanks to Keycaptcha Supporting team! Excellent job and prompt support! The decision was to establish the order of plugin in the Plugin Manager. I put the plugin last priority in the list and keykapcha was displayed in the registration form. Highly recommend this plugin to everyone.

Sorry, for me this plugin has no chance to get a good review. I have tried it several times, but always had problems to activate the plugin correctly. It is not really user friendly.

Also on the negative list:

- you have to register and give a lot of private data away on the site of the developer
- doesn't work without JavaScript
- doubtful 5 stars ratings from 1 review members...
Owner's reply

1. We didn't receive your support tickets. Your Joomla may contain a lot of extensions.
We cannot determine the cause of the problem without your ticket to our support.
Please open support ticket and we will do our best to help you.

2. Visitors should fill in just three fields with visitors' private data on our registration page. Here are these fields:
First Name, Last Name and E-Mail.
We are sure that 3 fields are not "a lot of private data".

3. AJAX technology don't work without JavaScript. It doesn't mean that AJAX is bad technology.

4. We always help our customers who open support ticket. And after that we ask our customers to add a review. That is why you can see a few members who have written just one review.

So, we would appreciate if you would open the support ticket. Despite the fact that you have given us just 1 star.

How kind of my predecessor to rate this extension with a five star rating. Regarding the fact that they are obviously new to Joomla (or at least not very active here at JED), I would like to relativize those statements.

Accepting the fact, that this extension calls home every time when it is accessed by your website visitors, there are some more weak points, which renders this extension less than "Fair" in the evaluation.

- Accessibility for disabled persons.
As there is no possibility to "hear" a picture, this captcha may not be used by blind people. As well it might be complicated for elder or handicaped persons to navigate the mouse and get the image correct. Using this extension does not give handicaped users any other option than leave your site!

- Installation not really userfriendly, but bearable.

- Javascript muss be anabled, otherwise the user may not registrate / comment etc. There is no fallback possibility.

- You do not have any control over the displayed ads. I think this point is really a downer, as I might imagine, that on a, let´s presume "Kids friendly" site, not every add might be suitable!

My conclusion:
This plugin, as it is presented today, isn´t so great as it was rated and, regarding the fact that the company behind it is located at "Republic of Seychelles" and there is money envolved, doesn´t gives me a good feeling. I wouldn´t send them money!

1. All CAPTCHAs, which work without CAPTCHA server or servers, have a huge inconvenience:
Each webmaster must track the new versions and install them.

2. We plan to develop a version of KeyCAPTCHA for disabled persons.

3. Each our plugin has "step by step" installation instructions. We don't know any installation which would be more user-friendly.

4. Our plugin informs visitors who have disabled JavaScript. Everyone is able to enable JavaScript in his or her browser and fill in the registration or other form. Moreover, JavaScript is enabled in all modern browsers by default.

5. Each webmaster is able to use our plugin without any ads. Please read the 4th variant in our description above.

6. We don't force anyone to pay us. At the same time, all our advertisers don't have any complaints. We receive just their thanks.

This is the real thing, an undefeatable CAPCHA solution. Just forget about googles reCAPTCHA this is the one and only extension that really copes whit the problem. As soon as i started using it, the breakthroughs of spambots belong to the past. Using it for a few months now on different websites and not even one managed to get through.

Then about support, i never have seen developers being so cooperative and enthusiastic in helping people solving there problems. Have an extension not on there list? No problem they make KeyCAPTCHA cooperate whit it. I am truly amazed about how these developers make peoples lives a lot easier and secure.

I really did my best to find some cons but how hard i tried i couldn't find any. Well done KeaCAPTCHA team thanks a lot. Two thumbs up for your outstanding support and devotion.
