So you just launched your first WordPress website, and within hours you start getting people registering on your site. Wait, what? Who are these people, and why are they are they registering on your site? Bad news is it’s spam, and they are following a link on your login page to register.
Good news is it’s easy to stop.
Warning! If your website is a membership or Woocommerce based site, you will need to consider before following this. This is for regular businesses sites only.
- First login to your website, and then click on Settings then General in the left hand navigation links.
- Remove the check in ‘Allow anyone to register’
- That’s it!
