1. The dev can rename the security plugin to allow access, and then engage a service like Securi to harden wordpress and the server to the max.

  2. WordPress doesn’t do this, because it doesn’t have any means of checking how many times you attempted to log in.

    So obviously it’s a plugin. You can disable the plugin to allow you back in, and then adjust the plugin to not be so sensitive about it. Or turn that feature of the plugin off entirely.
