Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » constantly locked out – even with right passwords, nothing allows me in

  • Resolved southernboyuk


    Have tried to access via two different permitted names, nothing allows me in.
    Password reset – no effect
    reset after lock out – no effect

    Tried option 1 and 2 below, very nervous about using option 3 as I could close down wordfence and still not get in.

    If you did not request these instructions then you can safely ignore them.
    These instructions will be valid for 30 minutes from the time they were sent.
    • Click here to unlock your ability to sign-in and to access to the site. Do this if you simply need to regain access because you were accidentally locked out.
    • Click here to unblock all IP addresses. Do this if you still can’t regain access using the link above. It causes everyone who is blocked or locked out to be able to access your site again.
    • Click here to unlock all IP addresses and disable the Wordfence Firewall and Wordfence login security for all users. Do this if you keep getting locked out or blocked and can’t access your site. You can re-enable login security and the firewall once you sign-in to the site by visiting the Wordfence Firewall menu, clicking and then turning on the firewall and login security options. If you use country blocking, you will also need to choose which countries to block.
