Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » Lockout notification

  • Hi there,

    I got yesterday 20 e-mail with the message lockout notification.
    I’ve setup iThemes security and almost enabled all the settings.
    But is it possible to block certain countries from acces to my website?

    Thanks in advance!

  • not countries per se, but you can easily block those offenders.

    go to logs > invalid logins , this filters only on ip addresses that are attempting to access your site

    you’ll see the lockout ips.

    then go to Settings > Banned Users

    Check the “Enable HackRepair.com’s blacklist feature”
    Check the “Enable Ban Lists”
    Under Banned Hosts, add those ips or ip ranges

    You would eliminate a ton of this traffic by using a plugin that changes your standard wp login url from the https://www.yourdomain.com/wp-admin to https://www.yourdomain.com/whatever-you-what-to-call-it

    There are several good ones out there. Just google for “rename wp login plugin” or “rename wp login alternative” and pick one. Good luck
