When a site starts attracting users, it will also attract spammers. Spammers usually use a bot to automatically sign-up to your site and to prevent this, EasySocial provides numerous ways to curb spam registration.
One of the features available is Honeypot. It is essentially a trap to detect and capture spammers that are trying to automate the registration on your site. The concept behind it is relatively simple, which will add a text field that leads bots to think that they have to fill up to register to the site.
Honeypot feature is enabled by default and you do not need to turn it off. However, if you wish to turn it off, you may do so.
