One of the things Flywheel does to protect customers from malicious users, is install a plugin called “Limit Login Attempts” by default. This plugin does exactly what it sounds like, which is limit the number of login attempts from a single IP address to three within twenty minutes. If you type the wrong password three times, you must wait to try again.
This goes a long way to deter would-be attackers, as they can no longer just try hundreds or thousands of passwords and try to brute force your account.
However, from time to time you might find yourself locked out. If this is the case, simply contact Flywheel support and we’d be happy to clear this restriction and let you back in.
