    Hello Anas–

    Uninstalling and re-installing will not help, as blocks are determined by our central database, not your local install.

    If you have users who have been blocked, but you would like to allow them to access the site, you can white list their IP address in the BruteProtect settings.

    Thanks for your quick replay.

    is there any way to get blocked user information by using my API key? So I can use their IP address in white list accordingly.

    Thanks again

    No, there’s no way to see this, but the user who is blocked sees their IP address as part of their block notification
