Stop customer registration spam (7 posts)

    In the past 2 weeks I've been getting about 50+ new user/customer registrations on my site. They are all spam.

    I can't find a setting to enable Captcha or any other way to put a stop to it (I did find one plug in that changed the URL but I don't trust it).

    I don't understand why someone would create a bot for this, it's not like they are getting anything out of it, other than annoying me.

    I'm having this issue - how can I stop the automated spam [New User Registration] nonsense? I still want my actual customers to be able to register though. WordPress + Woocommerce.

    Have you tried the following plugin :

    SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam.

    That plugin works on our WooCommerce site.

    Hope it helps!

    Candeed - did this stop the automated registrations? Does this interfere with you customers being able to register when placing an order?

    Hi, candeed:

    I have already tried "SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam", it only works on Register, not on others (like, no Captcha on login, or lost password).

    Is there any other option that work with Woocommerce???? Anyone has any idea????

    Thank you and really appreciate it.
