Failed Login Attempts

When a guest attempts to log into the website and has three consecutive incorrect attempts, the failed actions are performed:

  1. A log entry is made with the guest connection information, including: attempted member, IP address, operating system, and browser, etc.
  2. Email is sent to the website administrator with the logged information.
  3. Guest is forced to wait 15 minutes before trying any further login attempts.

The website administrator must evaluate the failed attempt to determine if the is an attempted breach of the website or simply a member having difficulties logging in.
