    Restrict WordPress login to IP address

    Tip
    by Tomas Docherty Developer

    This is a great way to keep you WordPress site secure and ensure no-one can login unless from specific IP addresses (i.e. your home, office etc).

    Add this to your .htaccess file in the root directory:

    <Files wp-login.php>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from xx.xx.xx.xx
    </Files>

    Simply replace the x’s with your IP address/es.
