Jetpack has locked me out of my own site

Stupid Jetpack has locked me out of my site, including the Admin username, so I can’t do anything about it, with the message:

“Your IP ( has been flagged for potential security violations”. How do I switch this stupid thing off please?

    Hey Neil, Michael here! :slight_smile:

    You’d want to first whitelist your current IP address, they’ve got a handy entry in a support article of theirs about this:


    Once you’ve done that, and have logged back into your site’s Dashboard, you’d want to go to:

    Jetpack -> Settings

    And deactivate the Protect module there.

    Kind Regards,

    I’ve logged in to and it’s not showing as one of my sites, nor when does it offer the option the help guide says to follow: “you can enter the IP or IPv6 address(es) via by visiting My Sites ? Settings ? Security ? Whitelist.”

    I don’t have a Security option.

    Man I hate this shit now, weeks of nothing but WordPress crap.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
