    Hi, I am stupid…
    I had marked the following option:
    Immediately block IP when attempting to login with a non-existent username
    However I have detected an ERROR. When this option is marked, users are also blocked immediately when attempting to login with a no correct password (and not only with a non-existent username).
    So I suggest to change the description of this option as following:
    Immediately block IP when attempting to login with a non-existent username or a incorrect password.
    In spanish is:
    Inmediatamente bloquear IP al intentar iniciar sesión con un nombre de usuario inexistente o con una contraseña incorrecta
    You can mark this like resolved.
    Thanks very much for your inteligent plugin.

    Hi giuseppecuttone!

    It should not work this way. The plugin blocks IP as described with attempt to login with a non-existent username. Probably you tried to log in several time before and plugin finally blocked you because the number of attempts reach the limit?
