Introduction

Site Security

An automated security guardian for your website! Picture this: a virtual bouncer that kicks in when it detects suspicious login activity. Once a certain threshold of failed login attempts is reached, it swiftly blocks the culprit's IP address or user account. This means they're temporarily locked out from accessing both your front-end and back-end, giving you peace of mind knowing your site is fortified against brute-force attacks.


But that's not all! Our extension goes the extra mile by keeping you in the loop. It logs crucial details like the date, time, and the nature of the login attempts. Armed with this information, you can take targeted actions to further safeguard your website.

With our extension on your side, your website's security is no longer just a concern—it's a fortified fortress standing strong against cyber threats.

Main Features:

  1. Automated Blocking: Instantly block an IP address or username after a set number of failed login attempts within a defined time frame.
  2. Automatic Unblock: Unblock an IP address or username automatically after a specific period.
  3. Manual Unblock: Unblock an IP address or username before the designated block time expires.
  4. Smart Reset: Treat failure login attempts after a certain period as initial attempts, triggering a new blocking cycle if necessary.
  5. Customizable Threshold: Define the number of failed login attempts before triggering a block.
  6. Time-based Blocking: Specify a time limit; if the set number of failed logins occurs within this time frame, the IP address or username is blocked.
  7. Front-end Block Period: Set a specific duration for blocking IP addresses or usernames for failed front-end logins.
  8. Back-end Block Period: Define a separate duration for blocking IP addresses or usernames for failed back-end logins.
  9. Complete Web Blocking: Prevent blocked IP addresses or usernames from accessing both front-end and back-end areas until unblocked by the system or admins.
  10. Comprehensive Logging: Generate detailed log files containing essential information for every detected failure login or blocked attempt.
  11. Flexible Blocking: Choose whether to block IP address or username based on your preference or security needs.
  12. Granular Time Settings: Set block durations in minutes, hours, days, or months for both front-end and back-end logins, providing flexibility in security management.
It is hard to test this extension because one would have to lock themselves out of their site to be sure it works. My issue with the extension is the difficulty of installing the license that is required to receive updates. Two files - one sent by email and the other created using a popup window in the browser (not a good idea) are required to install the license. This software is a great concept! The installation could be made a lot less painful.
