- On this page, you will find various configuration options. Let’s go through each option:
Show Captcha Checkbox
- Enable this option by checking the checkbox if you want to display a captcha form on the email verification page.
- The captcha form helps prevent automated submissions and enhances the security of the email verification process.
Limit Client Area Checkbox
- Enable this option by checking the checkbox if you want to restrict access to certain features for clients who haven’t verified their email addresses.
- When enabled, existing clients will be prompted to verify their email addresses before accessing the restricted features, except for support pages.
Change Email Checkbox
- Enable this option by checking the checkbox if you want clients to verify their email addresses when they change it in their client area profile.
- By enabling this option, you ensure that any email address changes go through a verification process.
Block Free Email Providers Checkbox
- Enable this option by checking the checkbox if you wish to block popular free email providers such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.
- When enabled, clients using email addresses from these providers will be unable to register or update their email addresses.
Ban Email After
- Specify the number of invalid code attempts after which an email address should be banned.
- For example, if you set this value to 3, an email address will be banned after three consecutive invalid verification code attempts.
Ban IP After
- Specify the number of email addresses banned from the same IP after which the IP itself should be banned.
- For example, if you set this value to 5, an IP address will be banned after five email addresses have been banned from that IP.
- Specify the number of days you want to retain ban details in the module.
- After the specified number of days, ban details will be automatically removed from the module.
- Once you have configured the desired options, click the “Save Changes” button to save your settings.
