Using ‘reset password’ on any Forum plugin iI have tried  ncluding yours results in an instant lockout from Wordfence. Is there any way to disable the ‘Lost password’ field?

    Hi Tony,

    The lost password field we use in our plugin is the standard built in WordPress lost password field. It sounds like the instant lockout issue is with Wordfence since it is happening with multiple forum plugins. Is there maybe a setting on Wordfence where you can set rules around how and when accounts get locked? I'm not very familiar with Wordfence unfortunately.

    Many thanks. Yes your hunch was right about Wordfence. Adjusting the settings of  'number of failed logins'; to more than '1'  cured it, albeit at a slight risk to brute force attack vulnerability.
