    I've recently changed a setting the change the login url. I remembered choosing the /wplogin option but it's not working! the wp-admin isn't working as well. I can't log in. Is there anyway to reset the settings or something? I'm really stuck here.

    Hi,

    I just posted this thread to reset this plugin. This will help your case, but it is advanced and requires editing database. Just thought I'll let you know so you know there is an option.

    No, they have no access to your WordPress for security and privacy issues. I don't know, but maybe their Pro support can perform what I described.

    If you need access to your wordpress, you can simply disable the plugin by renaming/deleting "better-wp-security" folder inside "wp-content" folder. This will disable plugin and allow you to access admin. BUT, reactivating plugin will break it again. I've tested it.

    You're welcome Lisa, I know how frustrating that can be not being able to login to your own website.

    I knew to rename the directory, that got me in, but cleaning out the database to reset things... that was the key. Thanks again!
