What is username-based protection in cPHulk?
Username-based protection will lock a user as a whole from logging in if a brute-force attack is detected, the following excerpt from our documentation describes this a bit more:
Username-based Protection — Whether to enable the username-based protection settings. Set the toggle to On to enable the Username-based Protection setting. Username-based protection tracks login attempts for user accounts. When you disable cPHulk, existing account locks will remain. This setting defaults to On.
