There are better ways to do this..
By , for WP 4.5.2

I just removed over 30,000 ip addresses stored by this plugin in the database. Most of them where duplicates. So many it was slowing down the dashboard. Not sure why or how this happened, but the plugin has been removed & replaced with something more efficient.

Inability to autoblock usernames since recent update
By , for WP 4.1.1

For some reason, you can no longer autoblock usernames, because after you save all the line breaks are removed and each username is separated by a space.

All of a sudden I'm having to go in and manually block every attempt to access my site with the username admin.

Please fix this.

Plugin blocked my ip thrice when i forgot my password

This plugin blocked my IP three times after I forgot my wordpress admin's password yet there is a section where it actually records my ip and even says "My IP"!

I had to delete it from cpanel and remove it completely. When I installed it again, after activation it tells me that "This IP is Banned" - my IP and cannot even access a single thing in my own site!

I think this tool is poorly designed...stay away from this tool or you will regret it!

Annoying request to rate it!
By , for WP 3.5

The developer needs to see what it does on an iPhone. It inserts a floating button on the screen that gets in the way of everything I try to do in admin. I don't know how to get rid of it. It's annoying enough on a desktop. It's miserable on a mobile.

So I have complied with that incredibly insistent demand to rate this plugin. I have rated it as low as possible.
