A must have plugin
By , for WP 3.6.1

Really awesome plugin. I almost stops 100 of hackers to hack my site everyday.

Limited Attempts Problem Solved
By , for WP 3.6.1

Limit Login Attempts is a great solution. Great step towards keeping your password secure!

My two sites have blockes over 13,000 each
By ,

I am still running 3.1. I installed this two months ago on two low traffic personal sites. Since then each site has blocked over 13, 000 or more attempts to login to the admin account.

I am glad to see that the plugin appears to work with 3.6.1. I need to upgrade my two sites.

Note that my stats prove what an ongoing attack on WordPress sites is underway, trying to exploit logging in as admin. Bots run 24x7 scanning for sites and trying to login.

All Good!

An absolute essential tool. Does exactly what it promises and no interference with other plugins.

Works as Advertised

Works like a champ. No extra fancy stuff, just does the job. Period.

One of my favorites

It locks out about 800 brute-force attacks per day, a absolute essential tool.

Alert Email Message
By ,

Hi there,

It will be great if there is a field to compose custom email message.

I have 3 blogs hosted and when an alert comes it becomes difficult to find out which blog breached the login attempt.

I have to login to all 4 blogs to check.

Hope this makes sense.


A "must-have" plugin for every WordPress installation!
By ,

This is one of the first plugins you should install and activate. Since installing it on a WordPress installation I haven't even begun using yet, this plugin has blocked nearly 600 attempts to brute force my site. Not only does it lock them out, but also records the IP address and lets me see what user accounts are being targeted. This is definitely a security tool that should be in every WordPress admin's arsenal.

I also highly recommend the "Google Authenticator" app to work alongside this one.
