Protect your dashboard without editing the .htaccess file -- the FIRST one that completely blocks remote bot login requests.
Installed this plugin while my site was brute force login attacked to thwart the bots. The bots were trying the user names "admin", "test" and <mydomianname> without the .com and originating from IP addresses worldwide at 10 to 15 attempts per minute. Luckily I don't use any of those weak logins and have very long random passwords.
The plugin is small, uncomplicated to use and there's no bypassing it. The failed login redirect is nice to send traffic back to the bots and tie up their bandwidth.
Thanks for this plugin.
Great plugin to add to your security arsenal.
Although the cloaked URL feature isn't there, the other features are still well worth having on your site. The authentication field in particular is brilliantly executed. Many thanks!
Since the last update the cloaked url's are suddenly missing. This function was the main reason for installing this plugin. In my opinion it is a great security measure that people have difficulty with finding the correct login url. I would really like the cloaked url function to return again!
Very pleased with this. I set it so it sends any errors to a malware site. I like that it gives no warning. So easy and so effective.
This plugin is the best available. It would be better, if the login page of WordPress (wp-login.php) were in a separate folder, so a customer can securely and easy protect the login page via .htaccess, but as long as this is not done, this plugin is absolutely necessary.
Needed a plugin yesterday to redirect a big roach that was trying to brute force its way into my site.
It worked perfectly! Many thanks!
Excellent job! We've talked a decent amount internally about obscuring our login screen, but had never come up with such a simple and effective method. We're excited to see how this decreases the thousand or so login hack attempts we get a month.
This plugin is phenominal. Works brilliantly and since installing I haven't had a single hiccup on my site, no hack attempts, not even spam comments!! =D I'm surprised it's free! Love It!!
