How to View WordPress Login Brute Force Blocks

To view IP addresses that have been blocked due to detected brute force attacks coming from that IP address, do the following:

  1. Log in to HeatShield.
  2. Navigate to the WordPress site you're interested in.
  3. Click on Brute Force.

You'll be shown a list of IP addresses that are blocked due to repeated failed logins as well as the usernames that had been attempted and the date and time when the IP address was blocked.

Whitelisting Addresses

If a legitimate user's IP address has been blocked due to repeated login failures, click on the Add to Whitelist button next to the user's IP address. The user will once again be allowed to log in from that IP address.
