The extension will not only protect your front-end (visitor area), it will also protect your back-end (admin area). This will improve your web site security since it will prevent brute-force login attempt on you web site. The extension will create a log that contain some information such as date, time, visitor IP Address, login attempt on front-end or back-end, and etc, so that you take further action based on the log file.

  1. Compatible with PHP 7.

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.
