Location Guardian


Sain3 Location Guardian is a magento security filter, it blocks unfriendly visitors from accessing your Magento website by using IP filter/blocker and by browser language.


  • Restricted visitors will be redirected to a desired CMS page or simply a blank page. You can get email notifications when block rules are triggered. In the meantime, Sain3 Location Guardian will keep a log of blocked IPs in your Admin Panel.
  • You can also easily switch off your website for maintenance.
  • The additional feature of banning visitors based on their primary browser language gives you more control: it helps you block visitors from a certain country, even when some of them use a proxy to bypass IP blocks.
  • Note: In the current version, only one language could be blocked: Chinese (Simplified).


Use Cases

  • Keep fraudsters, spammers and other malicious visitors from coming back!
  • Limit who can access your Admin Panel by IP address. Keep your website safe!
  • Show a friendly message when you need to close your shop temporarily (e.g. for maintenance), so that you don’t risk losing your valued customers.
  • Stops any traffic that uses a specified primary language.
