Support » Plugin: Change wp-admin login » I think I may have some something wrong

    Hi I have downloaded, installed and setup the plug in as described but I have been noticing that I am still getting several wp-admin log in attempt failures every day. I am thinking that its something that I have set up wrong or not done all the way. When I test things myself it seems to be working correctly. Is there a list of common screw ups that I can double check myself against or is there a new way for hackers to get to the wp-admin page?
    Thanks
    Mike

    Hi @berchakdesign

    Thank you for using my plugin.

    My plugin is not WAF firewall. It only gives a smaller protection layer by hiding the login URL. If you are log/register attempt failures on your website you should setup WAF firewall to block those attempts.
    There are loads of options that you can do to block the wp-admin from anyone else.
    One of the most effective option is setting up rules on the apache or nginx web services to restrict the wp-admin only to your IP address.

    Best,
    Nuno
