Hi, I'm getting around 200 user register in a day which I can stop them.

I have set the recaptcha on register page but still they keep getting in.

Are you on 1.8 version
I am using V1.8 since February 8, 2018.
i am also facing the same scenario even with reCaptcha turned on .. endless user registrations ...i am on 1.8.0-beta1
I'm getting over 2000 fake user now.

Is they any update to fix this issue.

I don't want to change it to previous version

what version do you have ?. I had to go down to 1.7.4 why the current version lets them pass so they are in review for approval


as the approval of users in that version if it works what I do is check your ip if you are not a legal user is deleted

But you can see others answers here

I'm using latest version. It only started when I upgrade to new version. I even have blocked register plugin install but even that is not doing anything.
I do wish I can select all of the register user in few days and delete them but we dont have any option to delete bulk user
that's why I say it's not a safe version because it lets users through. take my case and install the 1.7.4 since there the option to approve users by the administrator if it works

I'm using AntiBot Captcha plugin with the latest q2a version.

it is working very well and has almost stopped spam registrations using bots. (I had 1000 to 2000 bots registrations each day!)

Just install it go to plugin settings increase the "Symbol count" to more than 6 and add some letters to "Character Set". (Characters are case sensitive)
