Very long password length set in stone
By , for WP 3.9.1

The length is locked at 20 characters for users who don't use special characters.

This is set across all user types, so people wanting to just leave comments are a lot less likely to.

The best login protection
By , for WP 3.9

We've been using Login Security Solution as well as iThemes Security and Limit Login Attempts on various clients' sites for over a year - all told about twenty WP sites with half a dozen hosting companies.

Login Security Solution's login protection is far more sophisticated than the others. iThemes Security has protection in other areas, which is great, but both it and Limit Login Attempts fall well short of Login Security Solution in protecting the WP login without spurious lockouts for legit users.

Highly recommended - five stars - we would pay money for this plugin.

This is one of the best plugins for WordPress and it has helped stop attacks on my sites many times.

Download this plugin and enjoy peace of mind for your site security. Donate to this developer like I did to help support this project.

By , for WP 3.8.1

@convissor really good job. I'm sure you put a lot of afford to make this project happen. As a developer I can tell that you have really solid dev background and a lot of experience.

Keep doing the good job and good luck with future development!

Excellent!

I has catched and banned any dictionary attack to my site.
It does not report the entire IP address (I don'w know why), but still an essential plugin.

Caused Resource Lockout in my blog
By , for WP 3.6.1

I installed this plugin, while there was ongoing "admin user password bruteforce" attack.

After activation the side effect was extremely bad: my hosting provider almost immediately blocked my shared hosting, because the plugin, in order to provide "timeouts" behavior to the attackers, overloaded the maximum number of running processes, because of lots of hanging PHP processes.

I had to use technical support aid in order to get out of this lockout situation.

It does ward off brute force attacks to some extent
By , for WP 3.6.1

I feel secure with this thing running on the background. Had some 125 attempt attacks. Although the IP was not clearly listed. showed only first 3 sections.
