    Good Day,

    I am just a bit unsure of certain things. my website is http://www.firecorpgrp.co.za. I am using the free version. Thank you for such great  software. I am being notified on numerous failed log ins daily. Unfortunately I do not know what to do with it. I need people to log into my website and not into my admin. does this failed log ins refer to my website or the admin?

    Kind Regards
    Kobus

    Good Day AITpro Admin

    Thank you for the quick response. May I ask a question for clarification? Are you saying that when one logs into my website, he/she also at the same time logs into my admin dashboard?

    WordPress uses a database that has authentication.  When a user registers or logs into your website they are authenticating/connecting to your WordPress database.  A user could be sent/redirected to the default WordPress /wp-admin/profile.php page on successful login or somewhere else.  Usually that is handled by your Theme.  WordPress uses User Roles:  Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber.  Only an Administrator User Role can access all of the WordPress Dashboard panels.  The other User Roles can access various things in your WordPress Dashboard.  A Subscriber can only see their Profile and your main Dashboard page and does not have access to any other WordPress Dashboard panels.

    Good day AIT Pro Admin.

    Thank you for this valuable info. I am going to study all the links you have supplied. Yes I am new at wordpress and do not get any support from the wordpress forums.

    Why would BPS report “failed log ins”?

    Why would BPS report “failed log ins”?

    Because you have chosen BPS options to be notified about failed logins, which is recommended. And of course because the login attempts failed. You can of course choose not to be notified, but obviously I do not recommend that you do that.
