BuddyPress Security Check

BuddyPress Security Check adds a simple math sum to the BuddyPress registration form which the user must answer correctly before registering. This is an effort to reduce the amount of spam user registrations on BuddyPress, and so far it’s been working pretty well.

You can learn more and download BuddyPress Security Check at WordPress.org. Contributions are always welcome on GitHub, and also check out the introductory blog post.



  1. The link at Wordpress.org for BP Security… (where it says, “You can learn more at the plugin’s website…”) is broken. The word SECURITY is spelled wrong in the link. It says (SERCURITY).

    I have this installed but I have received 83 spam requests in the last few hours!!!! help!


    • It was effective for quite a long time, but the bots are now able to handle this one. Time to change it up.


  3. I am having the same problems as Frank Scotello – used to be an effective plugin but now I am being invaded again.


    • No I was getting bots before I upgraded. And also not sure how to downgrade back down.

    Agreed–have been getting a steady stream of bots for the last week or so. checked the registration page and the math equation is still appearing.
