  1. Extension Installation
  • Upload or copy all folders in the zip package to your Magento root folder. It doesn’t overwrite any existing files but just adds new files to the folder structure.
  • Once done, log in your Magento admin panel, go to System > Cache Management, select all caches and refresh.
  • Navigate to System > Configuration, if you can see the extension tab, it is installed properly.
  • If you get Access denied error, you need to log out admin panel and log in again.


  1. Configuration
    For configuring the extension, log in to Magento, move to System > Configuration > Restrict Fake Registration where you can find various settings to enable the extension.
  • Restrict Fake Registration: Enable the Restrict Fake Registration extension.
  • Restricted Email Domains: Input the Email domains (TLDs), separated by the comma, to restrict fake registration.
  • First Name Character Limit: Enter the maximum character limit for the first name.
  • Last Name Character Limit: Enter the maximum character limit for the last name.



  1. Google reCAPTCHA Settings
    To avoid spam and bots from registering to the store, you can enable Google reCAPTCHA v3.
  • Google reCAPTHCA: Enable Google reCAPTCHA to avoid registration from bots.
  • Site Key: Enter the site key you got while registration with Google reCAPTCHA.
  • Secret Key: Enter the secret key you got while registration with Google reCAPTCHA.


  1. Fake Registration Validation Message
    Once the extension is configured successfully, when a fake user tries to register with the restricted first name and last name length or invalid Email address as configured from the backend settings, a restriction message is displayed on the frontend.
    Also, the Google reCAPTCHA v3 badge is enabled on the registration page for security from undefined bots.
