    This plugin can accidentally block all traffic from your site trough a 403 error. This happened to us on two different websites / hosting environments. We found out about this through a message from the Google Webmaster Tools. After uninstalling the plugin and cleaning up the .htaccess file the problem was solved.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your review.

    I’m going to release a new version of the plugin this week. Hopefully that will fix your issues!

    Hi, it happened to me as well, any luck with the update??? or can you let me know what are optimal settings for it?
    Allowed login attempts before blocking IP
    Minutes before resetting login attempts count

    I was logged in as Admin and making updates to my site ad I was blocked on some stage;-(

    thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    Is your server behind a proxy?

    The update is taking more time than expected. And it is really hard for me to find time to work on it. I hope I can finish it soon though.

    The settings that we use on our sites are:
    Allowed login attempts before blocking IP: 5
    Minutes before resetting login attempts count: 60
    Failed login delay: 1
