Prevent new users registering themselves in Joomla

Do you want to prevent new users registering themselves on your Joomla website?
 
If you are receiving spammy sign ups to your website then take these steps to lock it down and prevent new users registering themselves on your Joomla website.

  1. Log into your Joomla website administrator dashboard.
  2. Click Users and then click User Manager.
  3. Choose and click the Options tab.
  4. Under the Component tab, find the following setting: Allow User Registration.
  5. Set it to no
  6. Click on Save and Close

This means that people now can’t register themselves on your Joomla website and whilst it won’t completely protect your website from hackers and spammers it is certainly a step in the right direction.

Cyber security is becoming increasingly important to our businesses and protecting your website is something we all need to do. You can find out more from the governments website
