    For days on end someone or something has been trying to log on as "admin" to my 2 websites. There is no "admin" user. Different IP for each attempt. Country of origin can't be established. Every time it tries to log on it is blocked by Wordfence for a month. Should I just let it be or is there anything I can do about it?

    That's one of the things people install Wordfence do do. I check all three boxes under Login Security Options and set it to 60 days and ignore it.

    I also block them at the main firewall if you have the liberty to do so.
