I can set how many tries before blocking, how long before resetting and blocking, and I get an email when someone is locked out from being blocked along with a list of IP addresses. I manage several sites which have this and ones that don't have it, there's no knowing how many hacker attempts there are.
This plugin should be used by everyone. Damn useful :-)
This is a plugin that everybody should use. In fact we would like that the functionality would be integrated in WordPress.
Worth adding to your WordPress site.
Really awesome plugin. I almost stops 100 of hackers to hack my site everyday.
Limit Login Attempts is a great solution. Great step towards keeping your password secure!
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.
Working great for me. Already stopped one hacker. Love that I get notified of attempts.
Did exactly what it said !
An absolute essential tool. Does exactly what it promises and no interference with other plugins.
No problems found so far, thanks a lot for this plugin!
