Poor Support

Canning a response to contact you externally is no way to keep a plugin alive.

Hopefully more people realize this.

Very Good

By Mohammad (mohammad177) on December 3, 2022

It is a very good plugin that stops spam very well.


By q120000 on June 29, 2022

My website gets pounded a lot by SPAM in my forms and attempted logins, and Stop Spammers has worked perfectly for the last year. For instance, from my Dashboard, “Stop Spammers has prevented 93423 spammers from registering or leaving comments.” I’d say this plugin is AWESOME!

Creates ADs on your dashboard.

By mattwelland (mattinventive) on May 31, 2022

I do find it funny that a plugin which advertises to "Hide admin notices" advertises on your WP Admin asking for money/donations. Takes up around 245PX of the Dashboard until cleared too!

not very reliable

By lordsnake on January 6, 2022

I have this installed on several sites and have had various issues with it. it seems to block a lot of legit form submissions. When it does block a form submission, I often get the message saying it was blocked but still get the form submission as well. No way to actually accept the form submission that was blocked... just to add the person's IP address to an allow list or block them. This is only useful for blocking spammers, but completely pointless for dealing with false positive as if you didn't get the submission, that person isn't going to come back and re-submit the form.

Great for beginners!

By Torah (sundragon) on July 10, 2021

It comes with predefined settings for general uses. And customizable options are also great if advanced users want to prevent spam further.

Reliably helps to fight off spam

By w-sky on June 22, 2021

First, thank you very much! It works great in blocking all spam comments on my website. The developers provide very good support for problems or questions. By fine-tuning the number of false positives could be reduced to almost zero.

This really saved the day - Spam Registrations

By primated on May 27, 2021

I was getting so many Spam Registrations on a membership site that uses MemberMouse. I'd have to go in everyday and delete so many fake registrations. ReCaptcha didn't stop it, so many other plugins did nothing. This plugin, from the get-go stopped it dead in it's tracks. Thank You.

Locked me out of my website, didn't stop spam

By jessieldevine on April 14, 2021

I'm not sure why this didn't work for me. It locked me out of my website, which was super frustrating and I had to do a backend workaround to regain access that I think would be too advanced for most average users. Meanwhile, I was still receiving emails from wordpress about comments and registrations... that were all spam. Bryan (author of the plugin) was very awesome and helped me quickly, which is the reason I'm not giving it a 1-star. But as far as what the plugin does, not a fan.

Simply the Best

By laurel1234 on March 8, 2021

This is the only plugin that managed to block by country upon install. LOVE THIS PLUGIN! Noticed an immediate difference after setup as all the spam suddenly disappeared. Does exactly what it says and frankly, exceeded my expectations.
