Anyone Can Register Option of WordPress
WordPress has an option that allows anyone to go to WordPress’s registration page and create a WP user account. This WordPress feature can open your site up for spam user registration.
You can find this settings option in the General WordPress settings menu of your site.
Our Simple Membership plugin DOES NOT need that option to be enabled. So you should keep the “Anyone can register” checkbox unchecked.
All membership registration should go via Simple Membership plugin’s registration form.
