Works Perfectly
By , for WP 4.5.2

I configured it in 5 minutes and then masked myself using my VPN as someone from The Russian Federation. I was not able to access the back end page, so it does exactly what it needs, two thumbs up!

Works properly. Can block by countrys.

Lots of options. I like it.
The lists need to be downloaded manually, but works properly once in the server.

Great!

Easy to configure. Stopped clickbots and saved our AdSense account. Wish it had shortcodes for hiding blocks of content as opposed to blocking entire page.

Worthless
By , for WP 4.4.1

This plugin didn't make a bit of difference with the brute force attacks coming on several sites; but it sure did slow every one down to a crawl. Hard to configure and it doesn't work at all.

Works great
By , for WP 4.4.1

Easy to set up, doesn't add much overhead to the system.

You can easily block the admin page to stop brute force attacks. It will even allow you to whitelist only your IP so that you are the only one that can sign in. Great plugin.

Easy to set up, works well
By , for WP 4.4

This plugin allows you to block front and back end access independently, exactly what I needed!

Beats having to update .htaccess or blocking ranges can be a pain in WF.
It especially makes me giggle when I think of the site I just redirected them/it to.
Thanks it's appreciated!

Works Great, Easy to Configure
By , for WP 4.3.1

My site is currently under a continuous attack from a Russian bot trying to log in, with a new IP used every 4 minutes for over 24 hours now. I turned to this as a next level defense after Wordfence, to stop them from actually reaching the log-in page. (Wordfence has country blocking too, but you have to upgrade and pay). This plug-in was simple to install (don't forget to install the separate country database) and easy to configure, with a clear, intuitive interface. So far it has been 100% effective in blocking the selected countries, without any side effects that I have noticed.
