They change WordPress Users default database
By ,

I enabled this plugin and then new users get only registered in the plugin's User database, but not in the WordPress Users database.

So if I want to disable now this plugin, I will loose all the users already registered in my platform along this time that I've been using WangGuard.

This doesn't make any sense.

Using WordPress Users database is a must. Don't replace it NEVER.

First experience
By , for WP 4.3.1

After trying some other plugins, the bots still could register on my website. After installing WangGuard it seems (for now) that the registration spamming has finally stopped.

Thanks to the dev's for this nice plugin, best of luck in the future!

I know it says it's not compatible up to 4.3, but come on...most plugin developers were able to product an update days after the release. It's been about 2 weeks now. Lets get an update please.

It is doing the job...

And I've had no problems with it at all, using it for a good while now... Its more recent improvements have also been nice...

Have set up some crons and it is detecting presently 4 to 10 sploggers a day and automatically eliminating them... I've been watching via email notices from Wangguard and also from Wordfence to confirm that it is really getting actual sploggers and not legit folks...

I'm curious where all these sploggers are coming from... Its obvious that they are somehow all related because of how consistently similar (and stupid) the login credentials are, yet their IP addresses/locations (via Wordfence) indicate they are coming from all over...

As if there is some nefarious software being distributed somewhere that all these misguided folks are using, or people's machines are getting infected, or a combination...???

I'm getting close to ready to turn off the email notices, feeling pretty confident about it now... There is a patch in the Wangguard support forums to do this, and a promise that the next update will put a selection option for this in the Wangguard settings...

I hope the next update is soon...

I had a 6 month problem due to some bots signing up hundreds of fakes a day. This plugin squashed them like the bugs they are, and keeps a log of the spammers and fake profile makers. Love it.

Wangguard saved me from almost 1000 fake user profiles already! I could recommend this plugin to everyone who's encountering bots and spam-accounts.
