    Ok, well after some more messing around I have fixed my issue. I thought I would post this in case anyone else has the same problem.

    I ended up deleting all related files and folders for both this plugin and my security plugin within FTP and PHP. I then renamed both the ‘plugins’ and the ‘themes’ folders to ‘pluginsXX’ and ‘themesXX’.

    Then after completing that, I then went to my site and found I was still having trouble viewing anything on both the front and back ends..

    So, I then redirected my browser to:

    http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php?action=logout with ‘yourdomain’ being your actual domain

    Now go back to your login screen and you should be able to log back in. Make sure you change the names of those folders back to what they were before downloading or activating your plugins and themes.

    This then fixed my issue and finally showed my site’s login screen. I am now able to login and edit my site like normal. I then reinstalled my security plugin and was good to go. I do not plan to reinstall this plugin as it isn’t really necessary for my site and I don’t want to go through this again.

    Give this a try, I hope it works for you too.

    Apparently, Wordfence Security saw this plugin as a threat and locked down my site to prevent any further damage.

    Hi,

    This plugin has to include changes to your site, and to include all the changes it has reload the page. So some security plugins, in this case Wordfence, thought of it as a bot who’s trying to login to your account using a bruteforce attack.

    So if you wanna use this plugin then please deactivate your security plugin first, and only activate it after you complete the Customization. 🙂

    Regards,
    Hardeep

    Security plugins log users out based on 1p adresses…

    so, i was able to re-enter, after i rebooted my mobile hotspot and got at new ip-adress.

    Another way to prevent future log-outs is to “whitelist” your ip adress in the security plugin, if you are on a fixed ip adress
