    Hello,

    Thank you for using our plugins. Please let me know do you want to restrict the registration by user IP address?. Please clearify.

    Regards

    Hello,

    Thank you for the acknowledgement. Please try the following plugin:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-login-history/

    It allows the site admin to track any users. Please take a look and let me know if it helps or not.

    Regards

    thank you!
    1. so this will give me the option to view IP address but how can i block by this specific IP ?
    2. do u have an idea if such a plugin will slow my site for collecting all these data?
    Last Seen , Online Status , Session Duration etc….
    i really appreciate your amazing support (and just purchased another plugin of yours (badges)) thanks a lot!

    Hello,

    1. Yes, Above mentioned plugin only allows to track by IP address and not blocking by IP. We can block a user with his/her IP address. But the issue with IP is that It is changeable.

    You can use the following plugin by IP:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/banhammer/

    or there are many others that offer this functionality. Please look here.

    2. This plugin does not affect your site performance much.

    Regards
    Ravi
