Support » Plugin: Ultimate Member - User Profile & Membership Plugin » UM using non-standard authentication hooks- incompatible with Wordfence

  • I have been back and forth with Wordfence Support on this… The Wordfence plugin is unable to country block Ultimate Member login and registration forms because UM is not using standard WordPress authentication hooks for those pages…
    On this Wordfence Docs page https://www.wordfence.com/help/blocking/country-blocking/
    -see:

    Block access to the login form
    Using country blocking to block access to your login form is an effective way to immediately stop brute force login attacks from a specific country. Login attempts via the WordPress XML-RPC API are also blocked. Other plugins that create custom login pages that use the standard WordPress authentication hooks may also be successfully blocked with this option. Plugins that are known to be incompatible are:
    Ultimate Member

    I do not want to use Captchas, for well understood reasons…

    What are some possible solutions for this situation…?

    Kind regards
