New user registration on my website something to worry about?

Postby fable666 » Thu Feb 04, 2016 6:33 am

Hi All


I have had two new user registrations on my website, but I don't know how they registered and is it something to worry about?


Many thanks

Can you be more specific - don't know what you are refering too with respect to Registration. What are they registering too? is it an Optin form?

Hi,

Yes no problem. In wordpress there is USERS on the menu on the side, and when I open the USERS it now says I have 6 users registered (7 including myself as admin) and subscribed. I do not have an opt-in and comments is not activated due to spam. Just wanted to know how they could have become registered users and whether it is safe?

Many thanks

To help answer this question. I will show you how to look who is allowed access to your website. - which you already know.
I created a quick video that shows you how to add and remove/delete a user from your wordpress admin area. I hope this helps.

To answer your other question, how did these people get into your user area, other than from hackers, no idea. I have never experienced that problem with any of my websites.
