Been having some issues with bogus users and some chargebacks through WooCommerce. Decided to give this plugin a shot. So far good experience. Lots of settings to customize the plugin and it's been a huge help in catching the bad users that keep creating new accounts. I've also been able to stop most of the chargebacks so that's a plus too.

Our sites been plagued by fake users and bots using completely fake user info. We’ve tried every service and most were able to stop some of the fraud, but this plugin has stopped every bad user. Our team is really happy that they can spend less time reviewing users. Plugin worked great from the start and we even contacted support to clarify a few things and they responded right away.

Oops, it looks like you have created multiple accounts. Your account was detected as a duplicate free account. Due to frequent abuse, free accounts are limited to 1 per user or company. To reactivate this account please support the site by upgrading to a monthly package. Your account will be fully restored upon upgrading. We appreciate your support.

I recently had created duplicate accounts and for this I was barred usage. It was my fault as I had forgotten my user credentials. I submitted a support request and they restored my account. Now the working part, it works like a charm and does what it promises to do. Thanks for the great plugin, works with WP 5.0 too. If needs, I will also upgrade my account if the 5000 query limit exceeds. Highly recommended.

At first I didnt have any expectations for this pluging when a friend recommended to me, but after a few weeks of using on one of my websites I have to say that it gave me quite a surprise! My website runs adsense so I've been checking the stats everyday and there was a clear improvement: less fraudelent clicks from unknown countries and slightly a lower bounce rate (about 5% less). And this was only after some weeks of using IPQualityScore. The gamebreaker, however, is the woocomerce support. Not many pluggings can offer something similar. I've seen an improvement in successful transactions and also my fear for dreadful chargebacks has decreased too.

If you are struggling with fraudulent payments or unwanted visitors to your website this plugin will work wonders for you as it did for me. The fraudulent payments we were experiencing are non-existent now. After making some minor adjustments to the settings I was easily able to restrict access to a lot of traffic incoming that was causing a lot of security issues. Im extremely pleased with this plugin and will continue to use it.
