BruteProtect
[resolved] 127.0.0.1 blocked? (3 posts)

    I have BruteProtect running on one of my local sites (dev copy for a live site). I was working in the dashboard of an unprotected local site then tried to access the dashboard of the protected site and received this msg:
    Your IP (127.0.0.1) has been flagged for potential security violations. Please try again in a little while...

    Should I ever get this when running locally? Is it because I have different admins on the two sites? Do I manually remove BruteProtect to regain access to my dashboard?

    fwiw:
    Transient name:brute_loginable_127_0_0_1, value:blocked

    Thanks.

    Sorry about this! The latest update will NEVER block attempts from 127.0.0.1, so you'll be safe on your localhost.
