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...

Sweet

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!

Great plugin

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

Brilliant
By , for WP 4.2.1

Was getting 500+ spam registrations a day on my site. I'm now down to one, perhaps 2 per day, which is a dramatic improvement !

First day without sploggers

Thank you sooo much! This is my first day without need to delete a hundred or so spam accounts.

Saved us from being buried under SPAM. They were very responsive and helpful when we had an issue. I can't sing their praises enough.

Works Great

Works very nicely with only a few caveats - UI is a bit confusing.

Two thumbs up!
By , for WP 4.0

Wow is this great! I did some testing on my using known "throw away" addresses and it caught them all. It's already blocked Sploggers and fake emails input in my free download area.

Way better than the ESP I was using that gave me nothing and nickel and dimed the heck out of me for any little bit of useful information.

Thanks to the makers of this fantastic plug-in!
