2. Fail2Ban | WordPress Brute Force Attack | Brute Force Protection With Fail2Ban

This is the 2nd part of our complete WordPress security course. In this tutorial, we covered how we can protect WordPress from brute force attacks by using fail2ban.

Using Fail2Ban for brute force protection is the best option. Because the malicious request will not reach your website and will be blocked on the server level. So, your website will not slow down and your bandwidth will not be wasted.

But Fail2Ban installation and configuration for WordPress need some technical knowledge.

You can use a WordPress plugin but that’s not recommended because the malicious request still reaches your website and your website denies that.
