Works Great!

With the reports of brute force attacks, this plugin, though old, is recommended on many security sites.

This really is a must have for any wordpress site. I never imagined there would be so many attempts at breaking into my site. Thank you so much!

Saved my butt!
By , for WP 3.5.1

After hearing about a recent brute-force hack attempt targeting WordPress sites, I went to find a plugin to lock out usernames with x amount of failed logins.

This was the 3rd one I tried and by far the best. Did exactly what I needed to, perfectly.

Within the hour of installing it, I started seeing attempts at random IP's trying to login to four of my sites, but getting locked out.

Thanks!

Easy and Effective for Brute Force Attacks
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin is easy to install and can be used out of the box without reconfiguring the default settings. I've found this is one of the easiest ways to prevent a brute force attack and is a great alternative to other security plugins that alter the wp core. I use this plugin on all my sites.

Thanks
