If you own a website, you probably know that not all visitors have legit reasons to visit your website. There are both bots and humans that daily tries to get into your website without having an account.
Having a website means constantly monitoring it for hackers and intruders to your website. Failed Login Attempts from Web357 are a step forward in helping you maintain a safe site for your visitors. The extension is available both in a free version and as a paid version. The free version only shows failed login attempts from the site's front end, but the paid version also shows login attempts in the backend.
The "Failed Login Attempts" plugin/component is self-explanatory and easy to use. You will find the dashboard under the "Components" Menu.
This extension gives you an overview of login attempts that fail on your site. The extension has few to no configurable options, but I suggest you override the look of how the IPs are shown, which will provide a link to more detailed info about the IP.
The documentation of the plugin/component is presented in easy-to-find links with a few options, it could have more in-depth documentation, but it is plenty if the extension work. Support is based on the Ticket system. You can also use Skype and Messenger. There is no Forum on the site, which would be preferable for getting experiences from other users.
The "Failed Login Attempts" extension is an excellent step toward having a safer website; it is worth installing and, as mentioned, comes in a free version, but it could have a few more steps installed, like showing the IP as a link to more info. The extension is a great supplement to Akeeba Admin Tools from Akeeba.
