Excellent Plugin
By , for WP 3.8

The plugin works perfectly, helped me in a situation with a malicious user.

Congratulations to the developer and please keep up the great work.

Must-have for any WordPress site
By , for WP 3.8

I wouldn't dream of running a publicly accessible WordPress site without this or a similar plugin to prevent brute-force login attempts. It's really quite surprising that this kind of functionality isn't built-in to WordPress. Many thanks to the developer for sharing!

Does everything needed to keep hackers out
By , for WP 3.7.1

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.

Plugin everyone should use

This plugin should be used by everyone. Damn useful :-)

A plugin that everybody should install
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is a plugin that everybody should use. In fact we would like that the functionality would be integrated in WordPress.

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.
