Se lo pone más dicícil a los hackers que quieren acceder a tu blog ya que les limita el número de accesos.
Not maintained but still works
By wroot on April 29, 2020
Would be good to get new versions and fix possible security issues (if any), but it seems to still work.
We had initial issues and tried again and it is working better.
After 7 years of no updates... still working well!

I don't know how and why, but this plugin still works really well.
Still works, and it still works well. (WP Version 4.9.8)

This plugin was provided by my host provider when I signed up with THOSTS in December 2017.
Was considering deleting it, but, .. this is from it's log as of today 10/10/2018
IP Tried to log in as
220.127.116.11 pigsoft.net (4 lockouts), b92.co.uk (2 lockouts)
18.104.22.168 admin (1 lockout), b92.co.uk (1 lockout)
22.214.171.124 pigsoft.net (1 lockout)
126.96.36.199 b92.co.uk (2 lockouts)
188.8.131.52 dyandoss27289 (1 lockout)
184.108.40.206 admin (1 lockout)
220.127.116.11 admin (1 lockout)
18.104.22.168 michellz047609 (1 lockout)
22.214.171.124 admin (1 lockout)
126.96.36.199 b92.co.uk (4 lockouts)
188.8.131.52 admin (1 lockout)
184.108.40.206 b92.co.uk (5 lockouts), pigsoft.net (1 lockout)
And so the list goes on, and one, and on, and on, ..
China, Ukraine, France and the good old US of A to name just a few of the look up IPs I could be bothered to do. Script Jockies all of them, but they're not using brute force attacks: especially from reading some of the login (name) attacks that the web boys are using. Later on in that list, are some of the people I've mentioned in my posts: who aren't board members.
Conclusion: This Plugin is worth it's weight in gold.
Thanks for reading, Jessica: Praise be the ORI.
Best plugin I have ever installed
By albusaidys on July 22, 2018
I have always installed this plugin on all WP websites that I create or manage. Nothing significant seems to have happened.
However lately I have been monitoring one of my websites and noticed heightened attempts to log in without my permission.
I lowered the number of attempts to 2 and increased lockout periods.
I have also turned option to get notifications every time login fails and login IP attempts get locked out.
I couldn't be happier.
This has worked as the best protection from hacks, protection to lock out intruder IP's etc.
So far over 450 failed attempts and over 250 permanently locked out IP's
Thank you for the protection
