Duo and limit login attempts WordPress


#1

Hi I’m fresh from Clef so still learning about Duo. Is there any point to having Limit Login Attempts as well as Duo (WordPress)

The “Limit Login Attempts” plugin helps thwart brute force attacks - someone trying to obtain a login password.

Duo protects you if someone already has your password - presumably they wouldn’t also have your second factor device.

Since they protect against different things there is benefit in having both active.

Hope that helps!
