    In UsersWP Settings General> Register, I have Registration Action set to “Require Email Activation”

    I have been getting many spam registrations this morning using fake emails. The accounts are being created even though no “email activation” has occurred.

    I installed and set up UsersWP Re-Captcha in addition to using invisible re-captcha with GeoDirectory and Ninja Forms. Even so, I tested this myself and was able to create a new user with a fake email address requiring no email activation.

    I would suggest you use recaptcha V2 instead of invisible captcha and check if it resolves your problem. That will force the user to click the captcha checkbox. Invisible captcha works on Google’s algorithm and there is no input box to fill by the user.

    Ok, Thanks Patrik. I will try that.
