Summary: Temporary ban IP address
Original Request:
I guessed too many times on my password and got locked out. It now says there is a temporary ban on my IP address. What do I need to do to regain access?

Diagnostics: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 10_3_3 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/603.3.8 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/10.0 Mobile/14G60 Safari/602.1

Thank you for inquiry.

Your IP address will get banned temporarily when you exceed the limit of failed login attempts. This ban is lifted in an hour, or when a password is reset.

If you don't remember your password, you can reset it as described at [https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/17.html#forgotpassword].

If you are still seeing this error after a while or after resetting the password, you are most likely viewing a cached (locally stored) copy of the page in question. Please see [https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/160.html] for information on how to clear your browser's cache.
