Blocked my access
By , for WP 3.5.2

I had the same problem as azlivin008. Blocked access to entire admin area until I deleted plugin folder via FTP.

Hangs my site
By , for WP 3.8.1

When I try to activate the plugin, my site just hangs. I had to go to the host control and completely delete the plugin from the wp-content folder to get my site running again!

Doesn't work
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin simply does not work. I am still being bombarded with ip's from China, Romania, & Ukraine.

Excellent, but be careful
By , for WP 3.6.1

I was being peppered with failed logins, always from foreign countries. This app blocked them all! 100% successful.

FYI, I use All In One WP Security, which shows me the failed log-ins.

The only caution: When you click "select all" on the country list, it also selects my own country! (although there's a note saying it won't select your own country) - apparently there's a small bug there.

blocked me out
By , for WP 3.6

Admin Block Country 1.0 blocked me out of my WP admin page (apparently by changing the ht.acess file). I'm a WP newbie, so I don't have a clear understanding of the issue, but I had to resolve it through my host server. Although I really like the idea of blocking my site from IPs by country, this plug-in was just a headache. I am using WordPress 3.6, and the plug in does not seem to be compatible with this version.

Update: I received a quick response from the developer, who is very helpful. I suspect my problem was either from plug-in (Better WP Security 3.5.5) or theme (Responsive 1.9.3.5) incompatibilities, as I was able to get access to my admin page after deactivating both of these files via my server, as well as Admin Country Block. Once I was in Admin again, I deleted Admin Block Country, deactivated Better WP Security, cleared my .htacess file, reactivated my Responsive theme, refreshed my permalinks and everything was back to normal.

Pretty much stopped the horrible people breaking in
By Plugin Author,

I installed Wordfence Security and I couldn't believe how many people from overseas were trying to access my wp-admin directory. Once I built this plugin, they stopped coming. Pretty simple, everyone should install this plugin and Wordfence Security.

Just was I was looking for!

A great plugin that works as advertised! Good thing that the plugin dont let you block your own country by mistake. Great work.
