  • Hi there

    I am using WordPress 4.7.2 and UltimateMember 1.3.82
    On my registration form I also use Google ReCaptcha.
    My site is:

    Currently I get a lot of spam registrations and I am wondering how this is possible ?
    When I look at realtime google analytics, I don’t see any connections,
    but as soonest I enable user registration, I get lot of stupid registrations 🙁
    Also, what sense does it make for somebody or some system to register to my site ?

    Thanks for some help.
    Best regards
    Frank Uray

  • Have you considered adding an extra step in the registration process in which user has to click on a email link in order to activate the account?

    Just wanted to add one more point: You can also consider using “Admin Approval” feature to eliminate User Registration Spam if email activation link is not something you want to do.

    I’ve found that the plug-in WP Spamshield works to stop registration and comment spam.

    Thank you for the answers right now 🙂

    But, how is it possible to register on my site without
    seeing somebody going on the site (analytics) ?


    @frankuray – Please clarify what do you mean by seeing somebody going on your site without registration?

    If this question is unrelated to original question, please create a separate topic for that.
