Prevent unwanted users from registering on your WordPress site by creating custom blacklist and whitelist rules.
Updated and tested 2023 Version
This plugin allows site administrators to block or allow users based on specific criteria. With a customized blacklist, you can prevent users from registering with specific email domains, usernames, or IP addresses. Conversely, with a whitelist, you can ensure that only users with approved email domains, usernames, or IP addresses can register.
By utilizing these rules, you can increase the security of your WordPress site and prevent spam registrations from fake or malicious users. Additionally, this feature provides greater control over who can access your site’s content and community.
