Clarification on IP Whitelisting/Blacklisting

Hi guys,

I'm trying to understand something regarding the settings of the IP security of the plugin. For instance, I'd like to activate this option so I can start adding IPs I want to blacklist forever, but not necessarily also add whitelist IPs to clear definite users.
If I activate this option, can IPs not whitelisted and not blacklisted still log in with the key as usual?

Yes, they can.

Whitelist basically allows you to bypass the URL key requirement, otherwise it's required.

Blacklisting prevents access to /administrator - even with a valid key.

So, as long as you're not blacklisted, you can access /administrator with the key. If you're whitelisted, you don't need the key.
