I don't know why this is not a perfect 5 from everyone who tried it. Always works. Easy to setup.
Just perfect to get rid of all the annoying bruteforcers.
Before installing this plugin I received almost 600 attempted hacks in just a few hours. Wordfence blocked them but all these emails were sitting in my inbox. After installing this plugin I got 22 hack attempts in 12 hours. A lot better to manage. This can become a very popular plugin. Please continue to support it. I will support your efforts. Thanks!
It would be great to be able to redirect to a page 404
Habe alle Länder, ausser meines, gesperrt und mit dem VPN getestet: Es funktioniert bestens. Einfach daran denken, dass wenn ihr in die Ferien geht, ihr das Land ausschaltet, sonst kommt ihr nicht auf eure Seite (bei Bedarf). Habe es mit dem neuen WP 5.4 getestet. Plugin Wordfence ist auch aktiv.
The reviews here are very old, so I had a look at this plugin myself. I got tired of all these hack attempts, so this seemed like a nice way to keep out most of the trash. It's very user friendly, after installation you get a list of countries you want to block admin access from, and a "select all" option. Your own country is not on the list so you can't accidentally block yourself. After that, I could still access the admin section of my site, but when trying from a VM in another country, access was blocked. There was no output, just an empty page, which is fine to me. So, a simple plugin but does exactly what it should. By the way, for some IP addresses the country is not known or incorrect, so no GeoIp application is perfect.
