Can I get API key for local Website ie site running on localhost
By , for WP 4.1.10

Im using MailPoet Newsletter Plugin 2.7, i was having query that can i get an API key for a local site for Wang Gaurd plugin. I was needing it for testing purpose.
Is there is some another option for it which is preferable for local site.

Perfect!

Fantastic plugin - does what it says. My site was getting a LOT of splogger registrations, and this plugin stopped every single one of them.

I've previously run pretty much every anti-spam plugin and combination of plugins out there and have finally found 2 that work.

* Wang Guard for sploggers
* WordPress Zero Spam for spam comments

If you're having trouble with spam and sploggers, try this combo. It works GREAT!

They don't change WordPress Users default database
By ,

At first I was worried because the plugin shows a User database in the plugin area, and I thought this was different from the the WordPress Users database.

But not, in fact they use WordPress Users database. So, this means you can also remove it safely whenever you want.

I recommend this plugin for having a spammers free website.

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!

It is doing the job...
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

Installed the plugin this weekend and absolutely love it, totally cleaned up my site and very helpful with blocking all the spam registrations that I was receiving. Great plugin, thank you!
