MelaPress Login Security comes with a number of different tools to help you secure different facets of your WordPress login processes. Once the plugin is installed, you can configure your own login security policies. We have a detailed MelaPress Login Security getting started guide to help you each step of the way.
What does MelaPress Login Security Protect?
MelaPress Login Security protects different aspects of your login processes, including passwords, failed login attempts, and inactive users. By default, the plugin will protect all of your WordPress logins. If you are running third-party apps such as WooCommerce and LearnDash, you can also use the one-click integration feature to extend protection to those plugins as well.
Custom login pages and other plugins that are not supported by the on-click integration feature can also be protected through our MelaPress Login Security integration process.
How do password policies work?
Once you’ve configured your password policies, when users’ passwords expire, they are prompted to change their password when they try to log in.
When resetting or changing the expired passwords, the plugin shows the users the policies the password has to match. Green-colored policies mean the password matches those policies. Red means that the password does not match those policies.
The same policies apply when users change their password from the user profile page in WordPress.
What about custom login & user profile pages?
If you use a custom login or user profile page on your WordPress use the hook in our plugin to hook in the plugin’s logic on your page. Refer to the hook for custom login pages documentation.
