Preventing Kahoot Bots
After reverse engineering some Kahoot bot chrome extensions I have seen a smart way that is being used to add bots and hopefully the Kahoot team may be able to workout how to prevent or detect this.
A common method is creating iframes that each have a connection to kahoot. This may be possible to block through detecting if the Kahoot window is in an iframe however I don't have much knowledge on this.
Along with this it may be possible to detect the IP address of the computer and possibly prevent more than 1 Kahoot game connection for each IP.
Hopefully you can do something with this information and sort out the problem.
It would be great to hear back from you.
Can you add a captcha, image verification to the Kahoot game, to prevent botting?
The issue with the only 1 game from each IP idea is that schools usually only have 1 IP and there is certainly more than 1 person using Kahoot in each school.
Since students are at home right now it would be helpful if we could set it to one game per IP and remove the setting when our students are at school and supervised better.
I had a Kahoot and one bot had the same name as a friend. I wasn't sure who was who!
