SDDM - Locked Out for 10 Minutes?

So, I sneezed while logging into EOS and must have hit enter multiple times while the sneeze attack went on. :joy:

I then received a message about being locked out for too many attempts to log in. I’ve never been one to forget a password, so I guess that’s why I’ve never seen this before. Just curious if this has always been a feature?

Yep. Always. Or, at least, for as long as I can remember.

Someone shoulda told you, “God bless you” because you needed it :laughing:

It happened to me a couple of times after leaving cap locks on and locking the session. I finally turned the “feature” off since I’m the only person who uses my computer.

If you’re inclined to do so, edit /etc/security/faillock.confand change deny=3 to a number of your choice. The choice of 0 will disable this feature.

Consider taking more allergy pills or not hitting the keyboard :wink: (I’ve been both places)
