    Thanks for the report!

    We’ve had similar reports for bbPress’ log in widget, and will try to get this fixed in the next major release. You can follow our progress here:
    https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack/issues/5144

    I read on https://codex.wordpress.org/Brute_Force_Attacks that password protecting the wp-login.php file (and wp-admin folder) can add an extra layer to the server. But password protecting wp-admin can break any plugin that uses Ajax on the front end.

    Jetpack Protect works differently, so that’s most likely not the issue here. We’ll take a look and I’ll post again here as soon as I have news.

    Hi Jeremy,

    Great to hear that this issue will be addressed in the next major release. Can’t wait to see it go live as Jetpack Protect is a feature I really like.

    Hi All,

    I have the same problem, and also really would like to use both Login with Ajax plugin and Jetpack Protect.

    Jeremy, have you had the chance to dig into the topic?

    Thanks a lot,
    Steffen

    @steffend Could you try to apply this patch to your installation of Jetpack, and let me know if it helps?
    https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack/pull/5647/files

    I applied the changes to protect.php.
    The login error message does not occur at each login, so testing will take some time. I will let you know of the results!

    Thanks a lot,
    Steffen

    Hi,

    Ah, sorry, I forgot to give promised feedback. With the patch applied, the error did not yet reoccur.

    That said… I encountered the same problem on another site of mine.

    Is the fix already in Jetpack Core or do I have to apply it on each site and after each Jetpack update?

    Thanks a lot for your time,
    Steffen

    Thanks for the feedback!

    The fix hasn’t been merged yet, but we’ll update that GitHub issue as soon as the patch has been fully reviewed.
