    So what do I do if, while experimenting with my site, I'm locked-out?

    MSG: "Too many failed attempts."

    You can use FTP and rename the plugin folder, call it simple-backup-old or something similar. You could also attempt to log in from a different location, or your mobile phone, etc.

    Thank You!

    When I delete your plugin, I can login to the dashboard but if I put the plugin back, I'm blocked, again.

    If your IP address is blocked, you could log in from a different IP address, try your cell phone, friends house, coffee shop, work, etc. Once you are able to log in, simply delete your IP address from the IP address Blacklist.
    Thank You
