If you reading this post, I think you got this “Your IP has been flagged for potential security violations” Error on your WordPress login page, Am I right?

Ok ,

Why ?

This Error is caused by New Module Called ” Protect ” in Jetpack WordPress Plugin. this module is responsible for protecting the website from brute force attack & this module monitor visitor IP and if anyone login to various WP(WordPress) Websites from same IP(Internet Protocol) Then Their IP Automatically banned ie. Black Listed their IP.Maybe this module is useful to Protect website from hackers but eventually, if you didn’t add your IP in Whitelist, Your IP Also Banned anytime.  but actually I have more than 15 WordPress Websites All are hosted in Different Hosting Services in All Over the world [Some sites are hosted in the US (United States of America) and Some sites are in Canada, recently New Websites are Hosted in the UK (United Kingdom)]. But I access all websites from the Same IP. But Yesterday I got Problem. I am unable to login to My WordPress Based Website Because My IP banned by Jetpack WordPress Plugin.
