Does not work and blocks login attempts

Causes a “503 temporarily not available” error when trying to log in with user name and password. Or simply redirected to the start page without login.

This plugin was installed last and had to be manually removed via FTP access from the plugin folder of the WordPress installation, then the login worked again as before.
