Limit Attempts plugin is a security solution for WordPress which protects your website from spam and brute-force attacks. Limit the number of failed login attempts per user and block user IP for a certain period of time based on your settings. This will stop automated scripts to gеnеrаtе a lаrgе numbеr оf different combinations and hack your website.

Manage deny and allow lists, receive email notifications, hide website forms for blocked or added to the deny list IPs, and other advanced features which guarantee safety of your data.
