Is it alright conceptually to update transient value frequently.
I am building up a login form & every time user enters invalid credentials, store the incorrect attempts.
So I am using user IP address & creating a key like "login_data_IPXXX" with an array value. There is a lot more information other than incorrect attempts which I would like to store.
Before now I was storing it in a session key & found that sessions shouldn't be used in WP.
Then I thought about using transients, as this value gets updated frequently & is a temporary data, I am confused whether I should use transient or not. If not, what should be used instead?
Cookies is also not an appropriate fit here.
