After a serious hack, this will save us from another.
Plugin does not seem to work at all. Wordfence reports several failed logins from many foreign countries even though local IP database is uploaded, backup external IP is set and all foreign countries are blocked.
Wordfence live traffic login and logouts reports messages like this still after activation of Admin Block Country plugin:
Dipolog City, Philippines attempted a failed login as "****".

Seems to be very good and no slowing down of the sites tested.
Don't forget to install the datafile first as per the instructions!
I was getting attempted Admin logins from Countries all over the world. Africa, Mexico, Russia, Brazil, Indonesia, Serbia, you name it. Dozens and dozens. About 1 every minute.
Installed the plugin and didn't notice a difference. Turns out I didn't set it up properly. At the top of the settings page you have to click on a link to download a file and then upload it. Easy to do, I just missed it at first. As soon as I did this and chose every Country except U.S. and Canada and every login attempt was blocked. Amazing!
love the support to upload the dat file
I can't tell that it does anything on the 3 sites I'm trying it out on. I still get constant notifications from Wordfence about attempted admin logins from China and other blocked countries. Will be uninstalling now.
I did block all countries except my. It is working perfect.
I'm using several Security and login attempt monitors - I was getting lots of hits (attacks) from Ukraine, Russia and UAE.
Installed this plugin as well. Instantly noticeable drop in attacks. Excellent.
A very simple plugin that just does what it's supposed to do.
What more can anyone ask for?
Does not work, used Chinese proxy to access my site.
