How to Manually Blacklist an IP Address with WP Security Ninja
WP Security Ninja allows you to manually block specific IP addresses easily. This is done through the Firewall tab in your WP Security Ninja dashboard.
Steps to Blacklist an IP
Navigate to the Firewall tab and scroll down to the option labeled ‘Blacklist IP. Any IP address you enter here will be denied access to your website.
If you accidentally enter your own IP address in both the blacklist and whitelist fields, don’t worry. The whitelist will take precedence, ensuring you won’t block yourself.
Blocking IP Ranges
You can also block a range of IPs by entering a subnet mask.
Alternatively, you can whitelist an IP address. This means that even if the firewall is active, actions from a whitelisted IP will still be monitored but not blocked.
