You are here:

Some hosts will already have something like this built in, but most of them don’t. WP Login Lockdown is a really simple plugin you can add to add some security to your site without much fuss.

Wp-Login-Lockdown allows you to automatically lockout IP Addresses who repeatedly try to login to your WordPress site and fail. The plugin will block their IP Address from continuing to make tries to get in.

Installing the plugin

In WordPress, go to Plugins > Add New.

Click into the search bar and type in “Login Lockdown”.

After finding the plugin, click “install now”.

After installation is complete, click “activate”.

To see the plugin’s settings, in WordPress, click “Settings” > “Login Lockdown”.

Below, you’ll find the settings we generally like to set when installing the plugin.

Congrats! You’ve just made a really simple change to add some security to your site without having an over bloated plugin taking up speed and space.
