Limit rate of login attempts, including by way of cookies, for each IP. Fully customizable.
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!
Nice plugin. Installed it 5 days before and 2 illegal attempts made to my site here, statistics are awesome.
Works very well. Thanks
Get many email with blocked connexion ^^
Does what it says, logs failed login attempts
Install, configure, done.
Great plugin, thank you!
simple et efficace
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.
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.
