It would be better to have a captcha on the login screen. to prevent brute-force attacks. and I want to turn off google indexing.

Thank you.

Hi there,

PRTG does have brute-force pretention mechanisms, namely the overload protection. It will effectively slow down logins after three consecutive failed logins. Check this article for further details :)

As for the indexing, simply place a robots.txt in the webroot and webroot\public directory within PRTGs installation directory. A robots generator can be found here.

Kind regards,
Stephan Linke, Tech Support Team
