Good evening,

i am using the Easy Sign Up plugin on my health site.

However, I am receiving many strange first and last names, similar to codes.

Can spambots sign in with an email address using the Easy Sign Up plugin?

Your feedback is appreciated.

Best regards,

Maxine

Hey Maxine,

Spambots can sign in and/or sign up using most WordPress forms, unless you protect your forms with either the Honey Pot plugin or CAPTCHA. Hope you find this helpful.

Hey Maxine,

You shouldn't need both plugins, and you need to remember that they only stop BOTs not humans. There are still a number of humans that are spamming using forms.

I have had to remove my Contact 7 Form from all of my Contact web pages, though I still use this plugin successfully for other forms.

What I have had to do on my contact pages is shown in the following video: and it has put a stop to those who were abusing my Contact pages forms.

Looks as though keishalina9 may have steered you in the right direction. Sorry but don't use this plugin to give an appropriate answer :(

Hey Petra,

This is a Word Press plugin used to capture email addresses when people come to my website.

I am sure others have used it before. Maybe something needs to be adjusted in the settings.

Thank you for responding.

reply # 2: suggest send a query to the developer Andrew? ... the developer would likely best know the answer to this one ...

... and of course, anything is possible ...

hope it all checks out ok for you ... :)

Hey Keishalina,

The data looks odd.

There is a section called Honey Pot Protection and I ticked the box in settings
.
Just need to know if the traffic and emails are real.
