  • I do not fully understand this setting:
    Retry Time Period Restriction (minutes)

    Can I get some clarification? Is this how much time between attempts before they get blocked? I simply cant comprehend what it refers to exactly.

    @joshuabaer23 – That setting works in conjunction with the setting above it, Max Login retries. The default is to lock them out if they make 3 failed login attempts within 5 minutes. At the default rate this means that the fastest someone could test passwords on your site would be 36/hour. In most cases the default settings are fine.
