Hi, I am using v3.3. Wondering how we can stop people trying a lot of passwords to get into the admin panel. Thanks.
Vanilla rate limits logins by default. If the admin password is not weak, brute forcing it should be unfeasible.

Thanks. I didn't see any settings in the Dashboard. That is why I asked.
Brute-force password attacks:
Vanilla uses a rate-limiting system that throttles password attempts to once per second for every username attempted or IP address origin. We explicitly do not employ a "lock out" system. Throttling to once per second ensures that no reasonably complex password can be brute-forced on any reasonable timescale. We are currently satisfied with our throttling strategy.
