You know those little encrypted passwords and codes you're sometimes required to enter before paying for something or accessing a certain feature of a website?

Gone are the days when they were actually legible, because now I can hardly read them! I realize that they are used to block spammers, hackers, and bots, but they are getting so sophisticated that I can barely make out the numbers and letters.

I mean this one isn't that bad, but it did take me a few seconds to make out what the letters were — just frustrating and slows me down when I'm trying to make a split-second purchase!

Are you noticing that they are getting increasingly more difficult as well?
