Protect your control panel from unwanted users. The plugin allows you to restrict or allow access to the October backend from specific IP addresses.

What you can do with disallowed IPs?
  • Send HTTP status code (see the Documentation tab for details).
  • Redirect to cms page.
  • Show cms page.


The plugin can be installed from the Marketplace. Please see the details here.


In the 'System' section of the backend Settings page click to 'Backend secure by IP' link. Go to the 'Manage IPs' section and add your IP to the list. After that return to the list and choose an action to perform for disallowed IPs. Enable the protection when you finish configuring the IP addresses.

If you want deny access for IP from the list, choose option 'Disallow access to IP from the list'.

Try to don't disallow your current IP address! If this happens, you can use artisan command line tool to disable plugin or remove your IP from the list. See the details below.
