Error with Lockout

Hello, whenever I activate the Lockout module I immediately get an error message when I try to login that says there have been too many attempts to login. But I haven’t tried to login and neither has anyone else. It seems to just be jumping to a default lockout and it won’t let me login. I have my IP whitelisted too. I have to delete the module from my system files to be able to get back into the Omeka admin interface to disable the module. Any ideas on why it’s happening? Other than whitelisting my IP I left all the settings as they were.

I really would like to have Lockout work properly as my site is hosting a controversial exhibition that will probably attract people who would try to break into the site.
