Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » Need help with brute force login attempts

  • I have the brute force protection enabled, which means my admin accounts are being locked out due to intensive bot attacks.

    To prevent this I have:
    protected wp-login.php with htpassword
    tried to manually remove wp-login.php from the directory (and enable it when i need to make some changes)

    Yet despite the above bots are still able to login – I’m getting the lockout notification emails.

    I have no idea how are they doing this. There is no front-end login form.

    The problem leaves me locked out of a few websites constantly due to ongoing bot spam.

    Any ideas?
