Limit Attempts - WordPress Anti-Bot and Security Plugin for Login and Forms
Protect WordPress website against brute force attacks. Limit rate of login attempts.
After one of my sites got hacked a few years ago, I installed this plug-in on all my WordPress accounts to try to prevent it from happening again. For the first few months I got almost daily attack reports but now it’s down to just a handful each year (I can’t imagine how many IPs must be on my block list by now). Thank you!
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.

This plugin is awesome. It has all the features that I exactly needed. Thanks to you.
I’ve been using this plugin for a couple of years and been very happy with the results. I have Securi installed and it was constantly emailing me about failed login attempts until I installed this.
Install this plug-in now, don't wait until after you are hacked like I did!!!
My logs show that for one website, some brute-force attacks tried over 35 login requests per minute from multiple IP addresses over a 6 month period. They got in eventually and it took me over a week to resolve the issue.
This plug would have prevented that and does protect my site(s) now.
I can also check the IP address of the logs and add them to the Clocked-IP (blacklist) manually.
