  • On the current plugin settings for user lockout, you can check a box to “immediately ban anyone attempting to log in with the ‘admin’ username.” I would love to see an enhancement to this to be able to define specific usernames that trigger an instant lockout. We have a ton of hackers trying to log in with “administrator” and other similar usernames.

  • Hi there,

    I agree that this would be a very useful feature. We experience a situation where most attacks try to log in with a user name derived from our URL, and not with “admin”. It would be great if we were able to lock out everyone trying to use that particular user name.

    Thanks in advance!
