A Simple and Effective Plugin

By bmw2020 on June 26, 2023

I've been using this simple plug in for a while and it's very effective. I recommend it.

Does what it says!

Just like it says. Helped to decrease user login attacks.

Happy So Far

By aberow on May 25, 2023

I use the Limit Login Attempts Reloaded plug-in to help protect a site I maintain. Looking through its logs, I saw many instances of people using my user ID. I did many cycles of search - change site settings/edit php files - change user name without significant effect, though I may have plugged a few leaks. While I use a strong password, its effectiveness is reduced when my user name is known.

It has been a few months since I installed the Stop User Enumeration plug-in. I have not seen any reports of log-in attempts. Time will tell, but, for now, I am happy.

Does what it says on the tin!
