    Hi there,

    Captchas are intended to stop spam bots misusing your contact form (for example).
    I don't see any advantage to using them on a user login.
    They are fairly simple to implement, normally using third party code or a third party service.
    Here is a list of some which are freely available: http://woork.blogspot.de/2009/02/10-...-services.html

    However, captchas present a big usability barrier for many users, so please think carefully before using them.

    Captchas are a mechanism to prevent bots submitting contact forms and flooding your inbox with spam.
    AFAIK a captcha would be quite pointless in a login form.

    Have a look at this thread where (especially towards the end) captchas and their alternatives are discussed at some length:
