This plugin restricts access to the login page of your WordPress Admin based on the location of the user trying to access it. Restricting access in this way can be a useful way of reducing unwanted login attempts.
To get the location of the user the plugin gets the IP address of the user attempting to access the login page and geo-locates their location by using an API available from IPStack.com.
Please note: an active IPStack API Key is required for this plugin to function correctly. You can register a free account at IPStack.com which provides 5,000 requests per month. Whilst this free plan will likely provide more than enough API requests it may be necessary to upgrade to a paid plan to provide an increased amount of requests if your site gets a huge amount of login attempts.

Example usage:

Enable the plugin and access the “RC Geo Access” page in the Settings menu in your WordPress Admin to configure the required settings. Note: an active IPStack API Key is required for this plugin to function, you can register a free account at IPStack.com.
