Limit Login Attempts

The Limit Login Attempts feature enables you to exercise control over the number of login attempts a user can make before their IP is blocked. This serves as a security measure to reduce the chances of unauthorized access to your website and protect your web server from potential crashes due to excessive login attempts by bots or malicious users.

Step 1 – Setup:

Login to your website

Ensure WP Extended / WP Extended Pro is installed and activated

Navigate to the WP Extended menu item

Locate the Limit Login Attempts Module

Switch the module on

 

Step 2 – Configure:

Once enabled, access the Limit Login Attempts module config within the new sub-menu

Here you can now set the parameters up for how many Login Attempts can be made before a lockout and also the Lockout Time (Minutes) of time you wish for that user to be locked our for

Once configure, go ahead and hit the Save button
