    Hi Frederic,

    Try to get in with 2 factor security and I could'nt get in .

    Is she, or you able to notice any error message? What exact error message do you notice which is preventing from logging in? Or is it something else? Please advise, so that we could have a better idea.

    Could I know what's the user role of the mentioned user? Is it an admin, or some other role? So that I create a new account in your system, and test, and see how that account behaves too?

    Please do fill us up with these information, so that we could have a better idea on how to replicate the issue, and see what's causing this.

    Hello Frederic,

    I can see that Defender on your site is disabled. I would like to test it, however, just in case I would like to have the option to disable it via FTP so it will not lock me or any other user on the site again.
