    Hey Everyone,
    I am using Wordfence on a quite a few websites which has been great for preventing people from hacking into our sites but as of late we have been noticing a few sites have had their options for ‘Count failures over what time period' and ‘Amount of time a user is locked out’ defaulting back to 5 minutes for both when they should be set for 6 hours and 1 day respectfully. Just so its out there this has happened to sites that are between 3.8.6 and 4.0.3.
    Has anyone else noticed this issue? If so, has anyone found a way to make sure these options don't reset. Many thanks to all who assist.

    Hi,

    We didn't make any change that would cause this. Let me know if anyone else saw this.

    Regards,

    Mark.
