  2. Or just temporarily rename the Login Lockdown folder through FTP in order to disable it and then log in and rename it back.

  3. Hello

    The same happened to me today. I just connected via FTP and deactivated the Plugin by renaming the plugin folder to anything like “login-lockdown.old” and could login in dashboard.

    Then I deleted the plugin in wordpress dashboard and installed again 🙂

  4. P.S. I even did not need to remove it I guess, I saw in the tab “activites” in that plugin in wordpress that you can see the blocked IP and can release it.
