All in One WP Security (

All in One WP Security is a plug used on the WordPress backend of Bad Movie Bad Review that provides various security related features, one of which is enhanced login protection. This plugin will only collect information such as IP addresses and account login names purely for security purposes and such info is not transmitted anywhere outside of Bad Movie Bad Review. An example is the following:

– when the login lockdown feature is enabled (currently this is disabled)

– someone attempted several unsuccessful login attempts and they got locked out.

As a result of the above this plugin will store their IP address, user login name, and also date/time of the failed attempt. If the plugin was unable to store such data it would be impossible to stop a malicious user or brute-force attempts to breach their way into the wp admin account. The plugin does not collect personal information such as names and residential addresses. With regards to deleting the info – upon request Bad Movie Bad Review can delete the DB tables and settings created by this plugin via the PHPMyAdmin interface.
