    user lock after 2-3 wrong password - how to change?

    Hi, How do I change that the user will not lock after 2-3 times that I put a wrong password? Sometimes I just type fast the password, and if I put a wrong password after 1-2 trials I have to download the Umbraco admin reset package. It's very annoying.

    I tried to add maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="10" in my web.config as follow:

    <add name="UmbracoMembershipProvider" type="Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.MembersMembershipProvider, Umbraco" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="8" useLegacyEncoding="true" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" defaultMemberTypeAlias="Member" passwordFormat="Hashed" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="10" />
                <add name="UsersMembershipProvider" type="Umbraco.Web.Security.Providers.UsersMembershipProvider, Umbraco" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="0" minRequiredPasswordLength="8" useLegacyEncoding="true" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false" passwordFormat="Hashed" />
    

    But it still lock the account after 2-3 wrong passwords.

    Please advise

    Thanks :)
