Hi @pinoydragonball,

The Akismet is not enough. Please read this topic: https://wpforo.com/community/faq/how-to-stop-spam/

Account creations (register) is handled by Wordpress not wpForo.

There are a LOT of plugins to control all that, login, registrations, security ...

@pinoydragonball Well it is not easy to suggest security plugins, still check

https://wordpress.org/plugins/blackhole-bad-bots/

that i use in one site with great results related to BOTS.

In my main site i only use for security AND BOTS one plugin:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/ninjafirewall/

For me, it is almost perfect.

@dimalifragis What is the best free, that can stop the user registration spam? I don't have much of a budget so I was wondering which one is the best specifically for user registration and is free

@pinoydragonball Both are free, i'm sorry but i can't tell you what exactly fits to your site.

It depends from many things.

Try https://wordpress.org/plugins/blackhole-bad-bots/ first and see how it goes.
