Brilliant

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

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!

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!

Impressived at First!

I have a bbPress and Buddy Press site running just for 2 weeks and I have got over 15k+ spam users and forum threads and Group posts.

Have been trying about 5 other plugins but they didn't work, the Spammers still coming.

I just try this plug in and see tjhe security questions displayed in the Registration Form, which make me hope that it will success to prevent spammers on my site. I give 5 stars for this! Will be back to comments with many thanks, if this plugin help me to get rid of these bots, spammers.

This has been a lifesaver. Wonderful plugin, easy to use and I can see that the authors will reply if there was ever an issue. Highly recommended if you have many sploggers.

Great plugin!, a MUST have plugin

Wangguard just made me forget the sploggers problem since I use it in every site, specially using BuddyPress.

Highly recommend it. Thanks for the plugin! :)

WangGuard really works and it is free!

I had fake registrations on my site for months - one registration every hour on average. In addition, they were automatically subscribing for my newsletter for which I have a limit of 2 000 subscribers (without paying). I tried several plugins, captcha's etc to stop the fake registration but with no result. Finally I came upon WangGuard and it solved my issue. It simply works, really works! And not only that, but it is free too! This is the perfect solution for me!

Each week, the number of SPAM registrants on my blog kept increasing. By the time, we reached one new registration every 30 minutes, I knew we needed to find a solution.

I did a little searching, and posed a question on the WordPress forum. A very helpful user recommended WangGuard, and I installed it shortly after. WangGuard has been operating for about 36 hours, and I have gotten TWO SPAM registrations!

No longer do I get all those pesky emails for faker users.
No longer do I have to log into WordPress just to delete SPAM users.

This little plug-in works wonders!
