Login Lockdown – Protect Login Form

Protect login form by limiting the number of login attempts from the same IP & banning IPs.
By submitting this form you agree to our Terms & Conditions

Login Lockdown records the IP address and timestamp of failed login attempts. If more than a selected number of attempts are detected within a set period of time from the same IP, then the login is disabled for all requests from that IP address (or the IP is completely blocked from accessing the site). This helps prevent brute force password attacks & discovery.

"Unknown" login attempts after installation

By marcioshibukawa (marciovideo) on July 20, 2023

After I installed the plugin, I started getting login attempts by the user "Unknown" (on the 3 sites I installed), detected by Wordfence. This is why I changed the login path through the plugin, so in theory, only they could know the login address.

Great security, updated with new features, responsive support

By Jim Krenz (uJim) on June 24, 2023

Thus far, I am very happy with the pro version of Login Lockdown. It is not flawless, but the developers are responsive, and they are improving and updating the software regularly. Worth the money for pro!

Extortion! Removed Unlock for admins!

By csgaraglino on May 17, 2023

Removed the ability for an admin to unlock in the latest update! It is extortion to sneak this in and for a payment o get an account unlocked. We will be removing from all 300+ sites!

Great plugin

Plugin makes your website really safer. Easy to setup and many options.

Edit: They fixed the bug! :) back to 5 stars!!!


Old review: If you login and forget to fillout the recaptcha or fill it out wrongly it will log you as "failed" attempt and show your password in the log list. This way every admin that can see the settings will know your password.

There is no need to show the failed login attempt password. Please remove this terrible function. Big data leak. 1 star until they fix this.

Does one job and does it well

Nice plugin that adds protection against brute-force login attempts.

Just the kind of WP plugin we need more of!

By David Waumsley (waumsley) on September 20, 2021

I can't believe after many many years of use I have not said thank you. I really appreciate this plugin. I recommended this recently to a friend who was delighted there was no advertising and upsell. Indeed! Great to know there are still some who go to the effort of sharing and updating because it's a nice thing to do.

a must have for high volume websites

By aseannewstoday (aecnews) on April 1, 2021

This is brilliant. It's a must have for websites that attract a lot of traffic and which therefore will attract a lot of forced login attempts.

Works great!

By ondrique on May 11, 2020

Thank you for this perfect plugin. You wouldn't believe how many login attempts you can get even on a brand new website w/o any external links so far. This is one of the plugins, I install everywhere.

Great little plugin

Thanks, been working away in background for ages.

Useful security plug

By Closed account (alexrowancom) on September 25, 2019

I like this plugin and use it on a number of websites I am a webmaster for. In case it helps, here are some thoughts on how/why I have configured the plugin. I leave the first 3 entries as default (3,5,60). They seem ideal to me. I set Lockout Invalid Usernames? to YES. If they don't know the Username, why are they trying to login? I am careful, so I won't lock myself out. I set Mask Login Errors? to YES. Denies useful intelligence to people who are trying to login when they shouldn't. Why help them? I set Show Credit Link? to NO. I love helping people - and as it happens it's my professional work - however telling people about the plugin so they can protect their blogs also tells people who are trying to login when they shouldn't what security I am using. This is a more minor point, however it also falls under the 'need to know policy' - they don't.
