[Resolved] wordfence logged a login from far away ip-adress
today I checked the live traffic and found the tab “logins and logouts”. What I saw, is still shocking for me – someone from the US logged into my account without even any failed login attempts before. For explanation: I’m located in Germany, don’t use any proxy servers and use a Mac. Also I have a very strong password with special characters, numbers and capitalLetters.
Can anyone explain this? How can someone log into my account with my password without even guessing? Btw, my blog is just a few weeks old, with a few plugins, nothing special.
Are there any other explanations for that? Like Wordfence got confused with IP-Ranges or something?
Here is the IP-adress which is in another country from where I’m located.
United States Columbus, United States logged out as "*username*" IP: 18.104.22.168 1 day 16 hours ago United States Columbus, United States logged in successfully as "*username*" IP: 22.214.171.124 1 day 16 hours ago
Any hints or explanation is helpful, THANKS!
