Works great!

We've been using this plugin for about 18 months on multiple sites, and it's still working great with WordPress 3.9.1.

Awesome addition to my security
By , for WP 3.5.1

A hacker keeps brute-forcing my sites from multiple IPs. I found this plugin to be very effective in keeping him out. Plus, it taught me to never use "admin" as a username.

Multi site needs admin control
By , for WP 3.4.1

Seems good, thanks for providing it.

But in a mutlisite, each non-site admin can change the login settings. There should be an option on the main site admin to be able to prevent this.

But this is a minor point.

The addin should be incorporated into the core WordPress. Users will pick weak passwords and be sloppy with them.

this one is a must have
By , for WP 3.4.1

I couple this with the ip filter plugin and it really helps a lot.
Also - there is no excuse for using admin as a username anymore. This will show you how bad of an idea that is in a hurry.

Thank you again for this!

Should be standard
By , for WP 3.4.1

Setup is uncomplicated and presents nice actions one can take to manage access control situations.
The IP logging feature can be useful for those who wish to implement additional layers to their security checklist.

This plugin works but not very well
By , for WP 3.4.2

I just removed this plugin from ALL of my WordPress installations. I tried to login to one of them today and was told I had to wait 20 mins due to too many login attempts. I had never had a login problem with this particular WordPress installation so when I encountered this, I wasn't very happy to say the least.

Additionally, it never sent any e-mail notifications to the administrator account, letting me know it was locking out IP addresses due to failed login attempts.

Between these two issues, I can't recommend using this plugin. I _can_ tell you it works since it locked me out of my own WordPress installation for 20 mins. :)

Good luck!

Another layer of security
By , for WP 3.4.2

I install this on all sites. I've received email notifications from a few sites saying that IP addresses have been blocked, so I know it's working.
