Support » Plugin: Wordfence Security - Firewall & Malware Scan » IP address blocked

  • Resolved hadders


    On a second PC, I mistyped the admin and PW so now I am blocked.

    How long does the block last?

    Alternatively, is there a way I can allow a blocked IP? I have access to wp-admin on my main PC.

    The block lasts as long as you have it set to last for on the Firewall > All Firewall Options page in the Brute Force Protection section. The default is 4 hours.

    To regain access for that IP address you just need to unblock the IP address. You can do that on the Firewall > Blocking page. Search for the IP there and click the unblock button. If there are many IPs there you can narrow down the results by putting lockout in the filter.
