Hello,
we got problems with some brute force attacks on our site so we want to add a captcha to our login page. I know for things like that you can use this option, but the problem is that the attacker could using a proxy so they won't reach the 4 attempts. :) So we want to add a CAPTCHA to the login everytime, how we could do this?

It's not possible without custom development.

You should recommend to your users, and force upon your staff, that they enable Two Step Verification upon log in. This is by far the most robust and effective mitigation for preventing unauthorised account access.

Ok thank you. I thought you simple need to set the 4 to 0 or something to show it everytime.
