How to blacklist and whitelist users by country

Country Blocking

The Login Lockdown plugin allows users to allow or block users from a specific country easily.

All you have to do is go to the Country Blocking tab and choose a Blocking Mode.

Login Lockdown - Country Blocking
There are 3 modes:

  • Disable country-based blocking
  • Whitelist mode – allow selected countries, block all other countries
  • Blacklist mode – block selected countries, allow all other countries

Both Whitelist mode and Blacklist mode have almost the same interface.

All you have to do is to choose allowed (or blocked countries if you’re in blacklist mode), choose whether you will block the users whose location can not be determined, and choose whether you’ll allow the website access to those users or you’ll only block the login page, and disable or enable and type the block message that will appear to the blocked users.
