Stops all the headaches
By , for WP 3.8.1

This has made a huge difference in managing my Buddypress site. The customizable cron jobs and security questions are so helpful. Thank you very much for making such a smart and efficient tool.

Vital WordPress Plugin if granting public access
By , for WP 3.8.1

Essential for any WordPress site which offer public registration (eg those using bbPress and BuddyPress). As with most such sites we suffered numerous fake "new users" using bots to register. We tried a number of measures to keep them out using plugins and .htaccess but still found a number of them were getting through. Installing WangGuard enabled us to identify the fake users already registered with the site (and get rid of them) and it seems to bar fake applications. Best of all it takes an intelligent approach to genuine applications meaning "false positives" can be eliminated. Highly recommended.

Works great!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Works like it says it does. Since it's been installed I've not had to worry about spammers registering, this plugin takes care of it so I don't have to. Never had a problem with it.

A Must Have Plug-in
By ,

After reading all the reviews what more can on add. It is an amazing plug-in and every WP install needs this to stop these spammers dead in their tracks.

Like many others I have been using a combination of plug-ins. These are now deactivated and WangGuard is doing the job all by itself.

I am totally impressed and recommend the plug-in to any WP Admin.

Many thanks and keep u the great work.

Fantastic Plugin to stop Bot Registration
By , for WP 3.8

TL;DR; After installing and setting up, make sure you don't miss the "Wizard" link in the WangGuard toolbar!! I was expecting Bulk Actions for "Recheck Users" and didn't find it, so I spent 10 minutes clicking "Recheck" on ~200 users' rows. The "Wizard" link cleans everything up all in one go! Dont miss it!

Review:
I have a small site and have been getting 3-5 user registrations a day for the past few months. "Hey people want to register! Wait... maybe they're bots?" WangGuard is super simple to set up, letting you set your own "common sense" human questions to protect future user registrations, as well as having a Wizard that runs through all of your registered users and checks to see if they are known bots or not. Just a fantastic plugin all around.

If the site you run allows users to register, this is a must-have plugin!
