    Good work – this is a really clever solution! Just a quick question – when an IP is detected & blocked will that disable login access for everyone on the site?

    For example:
    1. A site with 1 Admin & 10 Subscribers/Members
    2. An attack is detected and an IP is blocked
    3. Can the Admin still log in?
    4. Can the Subscribers/Members still login?

    Please let me know, Thank you

  • I’m also interested in the answer to this question. I haven’t yet installed and tried the plugin. Although I understand I can whitelist my own IP, I can’t do that for all subscribers and don’t want all the other legitimate users locked out. 🙂

    Hi, every non-whitelisted IP is locked out – this is to prevent distributed attacks than can come from hundreds of different IP addresses at the same time. If you just want a single IP locked out then Wordfence has a function to do that (amongst other plugins) – but it doesn’t protect against distributed attacks. Thanks.
