    Hi,

    I’m having a strange issue where I’ve installed the plugin, and it’s working nicely, user need to verify via email to complete registration.

    However the strange thing is I keep getting spam registrations with random usernames like vsfwokpersfsl with some made-up email, and the status is Verified !!

    Is it possible that the verification process is hackable by bots? Any thoughts? I think these spam registrations are done by bots, and I doubt that the email addresses are real.

    Can you please help advice?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Actually, one of the major use cases for the plugin is to stop such bogus registrations. It is not possible to skip / workaround the verification process as each user get’s a uniquely generated link in their email for verification.

    Are you using the standard WooCommerce / WordPress registration or a plugin?

    Here are a few options you could try to enable in the plugin’s settings:

    General > Block unverified login
    General > Current registered users > Verify accounts for current users
    General > One-time activation link > Enable

    Under the Compatibility options do check if you have enabled compatibility with any other plugin.

    Please let me know if you continue having trouble with this.
