As WordPress is currently the most popular CMS (Content Management System) that people use to create websites, new WordPress users unavoidably receive a lot of spam if they do not know how to configure their new site.
Here’s to share a powerful plugin that I recommend that you can install to block off automated spamming to your WordPress website. The name of the plugin is: Anti Captcha.
Once you install and activate this plugin, it is good to go! No need to configure further.
Give it a try and you will see the automated spam will be significantly reduced!
