Blacklist IP Addresses from visiting your WordPress website and Usernames from spamming. View details of all failed login attempts.
Experienced a few minor issues where I was seeing an error message on the Blacklist Statistics, but the author replied to my question within minutes with a fix.
I had no idea how many Bots were attempting to hack my site (attempting to login as "admin", etc, with random passwords) until I installed this plugin. It provided a much needed added layer of security you probably didn't even know you needed.
This is a great plugin to block those annoying bots trying to login to the admin area. Just a shame that this info isn't really used to build a database that other users can benefit from. I see the same range of bots appear on multiple sites I maintain, so apparently nothing is done with the info provided by blocking site.
It would also be nice to have some sort of automatic "default" answer when blocking sites. When I block 50 invalid logins, I don't want to answer all these 50 questions about why I blocked it individually.
For blocking IP's just for your own site, this plugin is absolutely great!
Frequently enhanced and great functionality. I like this plugin for all the reasons stated, and especially since I can export a blacklist from one site to import into another. Developer has provided a two hour turnaround on a support question. Can't complain about that.
I wish I could add multiple ip's at once but i guess it's doing it's job. I have a new IP trying to hack my site every day and it gets old after a bit. Maybe a button or a faster way to add failed IP's from login attempts would be an AWESOME update, hint hint..
Over all I think it's doing it's job.
