Record “IP address cache”
This plugin executes the validation by associating an IP address with its country code, host name and login failure count.

If the number of login failures exceeds “Max number of failed login attempts per IP address”, access to the login form will be blocked for this period. To salvage someone from this accident, please select the corresponding IP address and apply “Remove entries by IP address”.

Is there a way to increase the number of entries (500 by default) before they are deleted ?
Thanks for the question.
Yes. It is possible. Please check the "Privacy and record settings" in the plugin settings https://prnt.sc/255f3ah
Thank you very much for your quick answer !
I am using version 1.0.7, but I do not see the following fields:
Maximum entries ...
Database source ...
Reset database ...
I am running PHP (7.3.33), maybe that is the problem ?
I also have to say that I love your pluging.
