Competitors Plugins


By default WordPress allows unlimited login attempts either through the login form or by sending special cookies. This allows passwords to be cracked with relative ease via brute force attack. WP Cerber blocks intruders by IP or subnet from making further attempts after a specified limit on retries is reached, making brute force attacks or distributed brute force attacks from botnet impossible. You will be able to create a Black Access List or White Access List to block or allow logins from particular IP. Moreover, you can create your custom login page and forget about automatic attacks to the default wp-login.php, which takes your attention and consumes a lot of server resources. If an attacker tries to access wp-login.php they will get a 404 Error response.

Main Features

  • Automatic detection of bots, robots and hackers
  • Citadel mode for massive brute force attacks
  • Configurable email notifications with rate limiting
  • Proactively block IP subnet class C for a suspicious IP address
  • Create a Black Access or White Access list for blocking or allowing certain IP addresses
  • Limit login attempts when logging in by IP address or subnet class
  • Hide dashboard with wp-admin, wp-login, wp-register from users to produce a 404 error
  • Re-captcha for WordPress and WooCommerce forms
