    This plugin needs to allow users to exclude their own personal IPs so that they will never be locked out of their own WP site.

    Also, I've found that the plugin recently has started locking me out on my own PC after a single failed login instead of the five attempts I've configured. It's quite frustrating.

    I'm having the same problem - Plugin locked me out on my first attempt at trying to login to my own website. I have it set for 4 retries. I'm now stuck for the next 72 hours. Good show! :(

    There is a way to whitelist your own IP address.

    Try looking here.
