Display remaining login attempts before block
As a System Administrator & web-hosting provider, I would like to decrease the number of times legitimate users submit the wrong login credentials and end up blocking their IP because of it. I believe displaying the remaining number of attempts will stop/deter users from repeatedly submitting failed login credentials and force them to request password reset. Rather than risk being blocked by the server. Especially if the same dialogue offers them a link to reset the same. The benefit being fewer support requests for blocked IP's from legitimate users. The response can clearly state authentication problem without confirming user exists.
