    Unfortunately this plugin is no longer bot secure

    Here are some bot/spam registrations
    Username: AnneHuotelc E-mail: cravenpodium524vq51()outlook.com
    Username: Manuela38Y E-mail: cervantesbshr6qi()hotmail.com
    Username: RomeoSXZEvz E-mail: rusticjug784w755()outlook.com

    Two to three registrations each day. I now have converted to a captcha using slightly distorted pictures all spam registrations have stopped.

    For this plugin to remain useful, the text need to be replaced by pictures.

    I can no longer recommend this plugin

    I am having the same problem. @antonv which image captcha plugin are you using now to stop these spam registrations?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, none of captcha plugins can guarantee 100% spam protection. We could advise you to increase captcha complexity level on the settings page.

    Sincerely,
