That's GREAT news. While I understand it's unlikely for a normal user to see these fields, it was the right thing to do to remove this field.Removed the password input field and the logging of password field. This was done to ensure user privacy in case there is ever a false positive.
A normal user can definitely see ALL of them, when this addon is in "test" mode. Possible during that time, to have someone get caught by this.That's GREAT news. While I understand it's unlikely for a normal user to see these fields, it was the right thing to do to remove this field.
I am glad that this addon has made the spambots go away and help you focus your time on the site rather that worrying about moderating spam.I checked our old vB4 stats when we ran/tested the old version of this on sysnative.com - 743,032 blocked spam registrations with the older version of this add-on! Stats from June 2015 - Jan 2019 on vB4.

After two weeks of running this on XF, we're already at 1,600 automated bots blocked from registering, and have basically eliminated our automated spam problem. We've cut automated registrations from around 10+ per day, down to 0, and we're back at the calmer no-spam levels we had when running vB4.
This is pretty much a must-have add-on almost any site - massively cuts down on spam, and we've yet to see an automated bot get through.

I am really happy with the new look of the log, and I am pleased with the results of the new traps.
- Some unused phrases that were left over from previous fields and such.
- Unused code in some of the PHP files.
- Some de-funked template modifications
- The ipaddress column in the database from 15 characters to 45 to accommodate ipv6...
Have you checked under your main navigation tabs, under the Forums tab? On my site I couldn't initially find it, as our theme buries it away under the forums tab in the navigation.I've just installed the addon and set the log-view permissions for admins only, but I can't see any log. Does it need to catch some bot before showing up?
