    Nope, the free plugin will not block them. That’s just a warning to let you know what is going on.

    In fact, the plugin will not stop any bad behaviour as it is an auditing and hardening-only plugin.

    As for the messages being confusing, mind sending a suggestion on how to improve them via our github? PR’s are more than welcome:

    Hi, Thanks for your time and contributing to WP!

    …will be intercepted by the plugin and analyzed to see if the username is in the list of blocked accounts, if yes then the request will be stopped…

    if yes then the request will be stopped You wrote:

    So I’m little more confused…

    Hi Jonas,

    Sorry for any confusion. The interception and blocking are part of the Sucuri CloudProxy services.

    Thank you @jonas-lundman we will review all the documentation in the plugin and release a new version with clear messages and the differences between the features provided by the free WordPress plugin and the ones provided by premium services like CloudProxy. You can follow the progress of these changes in this repository [1].
