Prevent Spam Users in SocialEngine

There are many ways to help prevent spam from signing up using Google captcha and other methods but one good and easy method adding a checkbox to the sign up as bots can’t tick these, yet.

Go to your Admin Panel > Settings > Profile Questions

Create a new heading I.E. Spam Check


Now create profile a question and name it “Please put a check in the box” (or anything that you prefer). Ensure you have selected its a required Question.


Automated spammers can’t check the box on the sign-up page where the question is so they will not be able to complete the signup.


That’s all and your site should see a significant drop in spam signups
