    Not a support issue. Just wanted to say THANK YOU!

    I installed this on several of my clients one day ago. This morning, I received three emails about lockouts due to the hack attempts on the admin account on 3 different client's sites.

    I will be sending a donation in a little while. This plugin is so valuable! Thank you!

    I can't answer your actual question, but I do have a suggestion: don't use "admin" as your admin username when setting WP up. Most of the bots I've seen attempting to break into my sites are not smart enough to detect the actual admin account name so they just assume the default. You can add an extra layer of security by making them attempt to login to a non-existent username.

    Of the hundreds of attempts I've seen on my various sites, I can count on one hand the number of attempts on real accounts. The rest attacked "admin".
