Joyeux Noel 🙂 j'avais beaucoup de problème j'ai du rajouté des firewalls, des bloqueurs de login et aussi Spam Master, il y a toujours des petits malins qui tentent mais, ils sont bien ralentit. Par contre je n'ai pas trouvé c'est quoi la différence entre la version gratuite, et la version payante ?

So far, I have been using this plugin on my main website for over a week, and it seems to work great. This week, I installed it on 30+ of my other websites and I will see how it goes! Thank You!!

It is really useless: a.) There are still a lot of spam registrations on my site - b.) In addition, it blocks some real registrations. No need to pay a subscription for this.

Even in trial it does not work properly, but after trial period our site got bombarded with porn spam. Totally useless and I hate your half window size "expired trial" warning.

Not professional at all! While they offer a "free" trial (which you can only find out about by reading the wordy description trying to sell you on it but showing no price, almost all the way to the bottom!), it's not really free, because you have to give them your email to register before you can even use it. no thanks. I get enough spam. If you are dumb enough to go to their site to see what the price is, good luck finding it in the wordier page the link takes you to. There are buttons to buy it, but no prices at all. So click on the button and find it is 9 Euros for 1 site license. 2-5 sites is 31 Euros, and even though there is a button on the main page for unlimited sites, there is no price nor option for such. btw, on their site they have a shortcode showing, so that gives you an idea of how good their coding is....
