WP Defender Blocking

This plugin blocked my own IP....

Even, when I didn't even do anything to warrant it.

I logged in from another IP; and I noticed my IP wasn't even on the block list. LOL.

This makes me worried what other good traffic this plugin may be blocking...

I had to remove this plugin....

It seems many of these plugins have been causing me more hassle and not making life easier for me.

    Hey there Lou,

    hope you're doing good and thanks for reaching us! :slight_smile:

    There was another Defender update some hours ago, this should resolve some locking issues.
    Feel free to update to latest version and give it another spin.

    And in order to feel even more safe, here's a little snippet that can be used as a MU plugin so you could whitelist any IP address you want! :wink:

    add_filter( 'ip_lockout_default_whitelist_ip', function ( $ips ) {
        $ip    = 'YOUR IP HERE';
        $ips[] = $ip;
        return $ips;
    } );

    Just replace YOUR IP HERE with an actual IPv4 address.

    Hope that was some help, take care!

Thank NAME, for their help.
