Confirm Email

Protect your WordPress site from spam registration. Confirm Email requires new users to confirm their email addresses.

Having so many spam registrations? Tired of getting fake users with fake emails? Good news! Confirm Email will solve your problems. Confirm Email will send a confirmation email and the only time it will actually “create” the account for the user if the email address is confirmed.

Confirm Email integrates seamlessly with AppThemes registration system and uses all native registration hooks which allows all your current customization and plugins to the registration work.


  • Sends confirmation email upon registration.
  • Requires from users to confirm email address before they can login on site.
  • Disallows users with not confirmed email from resetting password.
  • Adds an option to resend confirmation email.
  • Admins can see not confirmed users in ‘wp-admin’ on separate list.


  • AppThemes Product with Custom Login Pages Support (see FAQ)

Does Not Work Well with Vantage
By -

The plugin appears to have specific code related to other Appthemes themes, but not Vantage. After a user registers, they receive the Activation e-mail. After they follow the link and Activate their account, they are sent a 2nd e-mail with their username and a link to reset their password, which is confusing since they just set their password. There is a work-around for other themes by modifying the plugin, but there not does not appear to be one for Vantage.

A must to stop spam.

I’m convinced that people having problems with this plugin haven’t installed it properly or their mail settings are upside down. This plugin is a must if you want to stop fake registered users.

NOT Working
By -

I have purchased this addon , install it but it doesn’t work. After user register it will NOT receive a confirmation email. I also found, unfortunately, after I purchase it that more people are experiencing the same problem. Looks like no complains is taking seriously here. How can I request my money back.

This can easily be defeated User goes to login page and does not click on email verification, then goes to /password-reset/ changes password and they are registered. Also there is no hyperlink on the Activate Your Account email

The program works as advertized!

…however, I still get junk registrations at 90% of the old rate. It would be nice to somehow have the user answer a challenge question or another means of verifying that the user isn’t a bot.
