Would be lovely to have recaptcha or something to prevent strange member registrations. Is this possible to fix?

I just opened my forum today and got 3 fake users direct after opening.

Thanks in advance!

I solved it by installing a plugin. But it would be great if this feature was in wpforo already.

wpForo handles spam POSTS within wpForo.

For registrations and other security problems, you should use a plugin. For me, The Shield is the best. Firewall, spam check for comments and posts, login protection, and much more. All in one.

Very light also (considering the job it does).

Which plugin you installed to solve this problem.
I also have a lot of extraneous users.
