Support » Plugin: Limit Login Attempts Reloaded » No match with Google Analytics?

    I have installed the latest plugin Limit Login Attempts Reloaded for several days now. According to the plugin logs I’ve had several lockouts / login attempts on a day. But when comparing the activity lockout log with google analytics, it simply doesn’t match. This plugin shows various activity with multiple IP addresses, when analytics tells me there’s has been none. How is this possible?

    Hello Shockadelica,

    The most likely reasons:

    1. Bots usually don’t open the login page, they make direct post requests to it, hence GA is not invoked. If they do open the entire page, GA is still not invoked b/c they do not run JS.
    2. GA might filter out some junk traffic.
