Secret Access Link

Understanding the Secret Access URL

The Secret Access Link is your backup plan to regain access to your website if you get locked out. This can happen if you have enabled the “Protect Login” feature and you enter the wrong password too many times.

How It Works

When you enable the firewall and login protection features in Security Ninja, an email is sent to you containing the Secret Access URL. This URL is unique to your site and your IP address. Keep this email safe, as it will be crucial if you ever get locked out of your website.

Email Content

The wording in the email is similar to this:

Save your secret access link for ...

Thank you for installing Security Ninja

Please keep this email for your records.

In the unlikely situation that your IP gets banned, you will need the secret access link.

Your secret access link is ...

Copy-paste this URL to your browser to whitelist your IP, allowing you to log back in.

Please keep it safe and do not share it with others. Use it only if you get blocked by the firewall.

Using the Secret Access URL

If you find yourself locked out of your website, follow these steps:

  1. Locate the email sent by Security Ninja with the subject line “Security Ninja Firewall secret access link.”
  2. Copy the provided URL from the email.
  3. Paste the URL into your browser’s address bar and press Enter.
  4. This will whitelist your current IP address, allowing you to log in again.

Important Notes

Keep the Secret Access URL safe and do not share it with others. It should only be used if you get blocked by the firewall. This URL is a vital tool to ensure you can always regain access to your website.
