With either method, we commonly have to deal with failed logins, be it due to incorrect credentials or other reasons, such as someone trying to brute-force the login. In such cases, monitoring failed logins and taking action depending on the situation is crucial. For example, suppose we notice a user repeatedly falling to login. In that case, we can take action to reach out to them and offer help, or in cases of brute-force attacks, we can take immediate action to block the user's IP address, notify the targeted user, and more.
For example, in the case of failed logins, we can set up LogSnag to track failed attempts and notify our team when we observe unusual behavior. This way, we can always be aware of the security of our application and take immediate action if needed.
