confusing between4 lockouts increase and 12 hours until retries are r (2 posts)

    Hi,

    First of all thank you for developing a beautiful and creative plugin and I am very happy to use it but I need some help please.

    Options:

    I am confusing when by default " 4 lockouts increase the lockout time to 24 hours" then what is the function in forth "12 hours until retries are reset".

    If 4 lockouts increase the lockout time to 24 hours so that means no one can login then why is 12 hours untill retries are reset?

    Thanks.

    Once they get the longer lockout it is for 24 hours.

    Attempts (a mistake or three?) gets reset after 12 hours as long as it is few enough it does not result in a lockout.

    The reasoning is:
    1. some people reported confusion/irritation that the warning remained "the next day".
    2. the security is still strong with 12h for retries to reset.
