Wordpress new user registration

Last Update: December 12, 2015

Has anyone been receiving from Wordpress a message stating a new user registration and if so what does this mean? I have been getting this message recently and when I check user in my dashboard their is a name and the person is a subscriber

So, these are not actual subscribers?
What and who are they?

That is a good question Phil. I have no idea how they even get into my Wordpress account to become a subscriber. I do know that they are not under my referrals, so where do they come from? I have unchecked the anyone can register box in general setting(thanks Marion) and will keep everyone updated to the results. See u at the top. Greg P.

Save me a seat if you get there first.

You can tweak your settings to prevent this from happening again. Go to Settings==> General and take the tick out of the box for Membership - Anyone can register. Then delete all the 'subscribers'.
