Stop Spam Registrations is a FREE extension for WP-Members that hooks registration validation to the stopforumspam.com API. This will validate the user’s email and IP against their spam database and if there is a match, registration will halt.
Get the Plugin
WP-Members Stop Spam Registrations installs like any other plugin. Go to Plugins > Add New and click the upload button. Browse to the downloaded zip file for the plugin, upload, and activate.
This is a simple-to-use plugin that requires no configuration. Just install and activate. Note however, that it is an extension for the WP-Members WordPress Membership Plugin, and therefore WP-Members must be installed and activated for it to work.
The WP-Members Stop Spam Registrations does not require a license key to function. However, it does require the license key to be installed and activated in order to receive updates from rocketgeek.com.
You can log in and retrieve your license key here on the RocketGeek Dashboard. (The plugin is free, as is the license key)
