    Hello!
    Thanks a lot for this amazing plugin!
    I have a little problem that started recently.
    In “User Policies -> Global -> Prohibited usernames” I have a comma separated list of usernames which should be blocked immediately.
    But now this list is not working and I get “Attempt to log in with non-existing username” instead of “Attempt to log in with prohibited username:”.
    Could you please check that?
    Thank you!

    Hi! Please check your settings twice. The only thing that can affect this feature is an ugly membership plugin. A lot of them use all sorts of code hacks to restrict access and never follow official WP plugin developer guidelines.

    It seems to me, that problem started when I have updated WP Cerber to the latest version 8.6.
    It worked fine before with membership plugin.

    I have disabled membership plugin, but it didn’t fix the problem.
    I still believe it’s the latest WP Cerber issue.
    Thank you!

    This feature was introduced many versions ago, and since then has not been changed. Plus, it works as expected on our websites. That’s why I believe the issue is related to your website somehow. Most likely, it’s a conflict with another plugin.

    I have downgraded plugin to 8.5.9 and list works again.
