Why does Google have the “Are you a Robot” check? How does it work? What is its purpose?

To keep out spambots. Spambots can detect forms and fill it with spam garbage or worse yet collect your email address it gets sent to in the form then send a ton spam to your email address as well.

The “are you a robot” checkbox has to be manually done and keeps out most of the spambots.
