Why was this plugin created?
In my day to day work cleaning malware from hacked websites, I find hackers often gain access by signing in through a stolen or guessed at Administrator account password.
Many of the established security plugins include Administrator login notification as well. But these other plugins tend to be bloated, with lots of extraneous features and complicated setup requirements.
Why make it so hard–geez!
This has left me with a choice. Either I recommend clients install one of those 100+ feature plugins, which include notification as an extra feature, or I eliminate all frustration and create a 1-click to install notification plugin for my clients.
So The Hack Repair Guy’s Admin Login Notifier plugin was born.
