Bot protection is critical because bots can be used to carry out cyberattacks, gather sensitive information, send spam, and perform other malicious activities. Additionally, bots can overload a website or application, which can lead to performance issues and even system crashes.
It is also worth noting the importance of security against bots to ensure the privacy and security of website or application users.
Some reasons to protect your applications against bots
Avoid performance issues:
Bots can flood a website or application with fake traffic, which can lead to performance issues and even system crashes.
Bots can be used to carry out cyberattacks such as DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), which aim to overload a website or application with fake traffic, making it inaccessible to legitimate users.
Protect users' privacy:
Bots can collect users' personal information, such as email addresses and passwords, which can lead to fraud and other security issues.
