Hi @diegopino 

Install an anti-spam plugin > https://wordpress.org/plugins/search/spam/
I use Cleantalk, for example

Spam should be blocked at REGISTRATION/LOGIN level.

Otherwise it is very hard.

Google Captcha 3 is a good start.

@diegopino CleanTalk will make your site slow.

IP based protection doesn't work in 2024.
