Block registration on your forum when those users are coming from hosting, vpn, or proxy providers.

Project Details

Hello!

This plugin checks on registration if the user is utilizing an IP address that would normally come from a hosting provider, tor exit node, known proxy services and or VPNs. To do this, it will query an API hosted at https://blackbox.ipinfo.app. The advantage of this service over others is that they provide zero restrictions on the number of queries per month. As such, you won't need to worry about running out of your free tiers worth of lookups.

This plugin and service are not guaranteed to stop all bad sign-ups, but they will definitely slow down the common ones.

Please note, we need the register's legitimate IP address so a reverse proxy service, such as Cloudflare, needs to be setup in a way to provide the user's actual IP address.
