This plugin is garbage, it kicked me off wp-admin and said "ERROR: Too many failed login attempts. Please try again in 20 minutes.". I was logged in and just activated the plugin...

Not working on my multisite
By ,

Activated it Network-Wide then went to test it by entering a password wrong repeatedly.
After 3 attempts (out of my 4) it kept saying for all subsequent trials: 1 attempt remaining.

Although it did lock met out, but it failed to report the lockout.

Warning but works on Multisite installation
By , for WP 4.3.1

I have installed it at the backend and when I activated it for all sites I got the message:
Das Plugin hat keinen validen Header.
But all works fine ... therefore a five star.
Thanks for sharing your great work for free!

Very useful and important plugin

Works greats. Seeing all these hostile login attempts will scare the s@#$ out of you. But better be scared and do something about it than sorry later.

Supposedly out of date
By , for WP 4.3.1

but Limit Login Attempts does the job best with minimal fuss and no little overhead. All plugins should be built so resliantly.

Does what it says, and works well. What more can I ask for? :)

A practical tool for website security. This is a useful plugin. I wish to thank the developer. It would be wonderful if an updated version of this plugin would be released. Best wishes and thank you again.

It's still working...

Simple and Effective
By , for WP 4.3

This plugin is a big help. Has clearly helped limit the hackers' attempts to get into my sites. I would love to see an IP blacklist feature added.

Still works after all this time
By , for WP 4.2.4

Even though this plugin hasn't been updated for some time, it still works properly.
