I really like the idea of this plugin as I am getting lots of hacking attempts across my sites. However, my only concern is that i get locked out myself and cannot log back in if I do not know the IP address I will be using in advance (i.e. when on the road).
I have added my default IP address to the whitelist but often need to log into sites while travelling. If a lockdown is in progress am I stuck or is there any way (e.g. through FTP) that I can add my new IP address to the whitelist during a lockdown? If so, where does the whitelist file exist? (I can’t see it in any of the plugin files or htaccess).
If not, I fear to use the plugin as I could end up being locked out myself.
Also, (as others have asked) is there any way to limit it to invalid user names? This would overcome the above problem as the lockdown would not effect me regardless of IP address because I would be using the correct username.
Thanks, in advance, for the clarification.
