How to Limit Login Attempts

Brute force attacks are one of the most common forms of attacks used by hackers to get into a WordPress site.

You can easily prevent this by limiting login attempts. The plugin Limit Login Attempts Reloaded is written specifically to protect against such attacks.

After installing the plugin, you can access it through Settings Limit Login Attempts.

To configure the plugin, go to the Settings tab and configure lockout settings. The default values are often enough, but you can adjust these to fit your needs.

Here is some quick information about the settings so you can adjust them accordingly:

  1. Allowed retries - how many login attempts before a user (or IP) is locked out
  2. Minutes lockout - how long a user is locked out before being able to retry logging in again
  3. X lockouts increase lockout time to X hours - allows you to set an extended lockout period after a user has been locked out for a set number of times
  4. Hours until retries are reset - you can leave this at default
