User Spam Remover

Automatically removes spam user registrations and other old, unused user accounts. Blocks annoying e-mail to administrator after new registrations.

User Spam Remover is a plugin for WordPress that automatically removes spam user registrations and other old, never-used user accounts. It also blocks the notification e-mail that WordPress normally sends to the administrator whenever a new user registers (annoying when that registration is spam!) and logs it instead.

The plugin adds a configuration panel so that all of these options can be turned on or off, and it logs and fully backs up all user accounts that it deletes, so that you can restore them if you need to.

Features:

  • Automatically deletes user registration spam and other orphaned, never-used accounts.

  • Very simple, enable and go! Doesn't interfere with the normal user registration process in any way. So, it doesn't add captchas or activation or anything else -- you're free to use it alongside a plugin that does, if you like.

  • Blocks notification e-mail that WordPress normally sends to the administrator every time a new user registers (instead, logs this event).

  • Fully configurable, with grace period for new accounts and optional username whitelist.

  • Fully logs all actions and backs up all user accounts that it deletes so that you can seamlessly restore them if you ever need to.
