I run a website running Wordpress 5.8. When you fail to login, the string ?login=failed shows. Is there any way to add a popup that tells the user their password is incorrect?

  • Are you using the default wordpress login page? if yes, than no problem. Consider the following though, if you let the user know what failed in the login proccess you already do half the work for a potential hacker, its always best to return a general message, something like, username or password is incorrect, please try again Jul 26 at 6:50
