This plugin works well on my WordPress 6.4.2 site Thanks Hauke, this is very helpful for the very confidential site I'm working on.

This is a must have. WP guesses the most wild things without it. I found thousands of random urls on google, none exists. This plugin makes them 404. like they always should. A new hook will be added in 5.5 add_filter( 'do_redirect_guess_404_permalink', '__return_false' ); https://make.wordpress.org/core/2020/06/26/wordpress-5-5-better-fine-grained-control-of-redirect_guess_404_permalink/ Until then. Must have!

It’s pretty horrible that wordpress auto-guesses a url because it will break pagination when category pages are auto-guessed and that leads to lots of internal 404s by webmasters. I got this plugin working and it solved all my problems. Just make sure you purge any cdn and cache. I think it also might conflict with some Drupal to Wordpress migration plugins, so you'll have to disable those eventually.
