Restrict IP addresses from logging in

Specify the IP addresses you want your backend users to be able to log in from. For example only the IP address of you office or store locations. Besides regular IPv4 addresses, this extension also supports IPv6 addresses. Don't know your own IP address? No problem, the extension provides a link to the websites you can find your IP.

Administrators can always login

You don't have to be afraid that you will be locked out from your own store, because users with role "Administrators" can always log in. You can also select specific users and user roles to log in from anywhere in the world, in case you're on holiday and want your manager to be able to log in whenever he needs to.

Keep hackers out

As a bonus, this extension also helps to prevent hackers from remotely using your employee user accounts or bute forcing your store's admin panel.

Easy to set up

After installing the extension, use the following steps to set up the extension:

  • Go to the store configuration.
  • Go to Web Whales > Backend Login Restriction.
  • Enable the extension.
  • Enter the IP address(es) you want your admin users to be able to login from. Use the links to the IP tools to find your current IP address.
  • Optionally select the users and/or user roles to allow those users to bypass the IP restrictions.
  • Save the configuration and clear the configuration cache.
