As a security measure, Nimblex will temporarily lock a user who attempts to login (unsuccessfully) a number of times in a short space of time. This is to prevent attacks on user accounts.

After 3 failed attempts within 10 minutes the user is locked out for 2 minutes.
Then:

  • After 6, for 15 minutes
  • After 9, for 1 hour
  • After 12, 4 hours
  • After 15, 24 hours

It will keep counting your failed attempts even during the lockout period.

Administrators can unlock users at any time from the manage roles screen.
