    I use WPBruiser on several websites mainly to protect my Login page from Brute Force Attacks. Sometimes I use WPBruiser by itself and sometimes I also use other Plugins along with WPBruiser. I realized recently I may have underestimated what WPBruiser can do.

    For one of my websites I got an “Alert – Brute Force Attack Detected by WPBruiser!” email. Immediately I checked the plugins and saw WPBruiser alone was protecting the website again Brute Force. My first thought was to add Wordfence. On Wordfence’s Live Traffic View I began blocking offending bots.

    1) When I get the emails “Alert – Brute Force Attack Detected by WPBruiser!” can I just sit back and relax knowing WPBruiser is blocking all bots?

    2) When I get the emails “Alert – Brute Force Attack Detected by WPBruiser!” does it mean that WPBruiser has blocked the offending IP/bot?

    3) If WPBruiser is blocking bots successfully on my website why would I see bot visits in Wordfence Live Traffic view?

    4) Does WPBruiser work well with other security plugins like Wordfence Security – Firewall & Malware Scan and Sucuri Security – Auditing, Malware Scanner and Security Hardening?

    Hi,
    1. Yes!
    2. Yes!
    3. Because the bot is still sending requests to your site!
    4. Yes!

    Sorry for the late response. So the bot visits and Wordfence Live Traffic view would show that visit, but WP Bruiser makes sure the bot gets an empty page/post or its form is hidden from the bot?
