Many business owners come to us complaining about how their Magento 2 webshop is getting flooded with spam customer registrations and how they are tired of deleting all those fake customer accounts.
It is a known fact that everyone who registers on your webshop is not a potential customer or not even a real person in many cases. Spammers attack Magento customer registration forms, and there are also bots and scripts that can create thousands of customer accounts quickly. That can easily mess-up your webshop performance by overloading your server and database.
Fake customer accounts can also be from competitors who are trying to see the private customer areas to complain about your site on social media platforms or even to improve their own site’s user experience.
It is safe to say that fake customer accounts have become a significant problem for many Magento 2 webshop owners.
