    Thank you for your feedback.

    You led me to an interesting thought.

    Add an option to completely hide / lock the login form if the key is not set.

    Thank you.

    As for the plug-in, at the moment, the basic idea is that it is not an effect attacker. Thereby increasing safety.

    For example, an attacker still picked the correct password. But without a key, it still will not let on. And it will continue to search, noting that combination is incorrect. Thus, the idea of ​​busting meaningless. But note this attacker knows nothing 🙂

    Perhaps the description of the plugin, not exactly correct. And it misled you. If you can offer the best option, I will be grateful to you.

    When you fully hide the login form, you have a problem – will not be processed and routine inquiries, activation of the user, password recovery, etc.

    I need to think about it yet.

    pieterg, you get the login screen but you cannot login even if you type the correct login/password. You are allowed to login only when you supply the secret key in the url. It works for me.

    wp-admin/wp-login.php?sk=my_secure_key – you can login.
    wp-login.php/wp-login.php – you cannot login even if you login with the correct login and password.

    The login screen is shown in any way.
