Hello,
No, you can't.
LimeSurvey has a brute-force protection, though. After the 3rd false password an IP address is barred for 30 minutes by default. By modifying config.php (see config-sdefaults.php for the related setting) you can harden this even more, if you like, by settings less retries or a longer blocking time.

Best regards

i tried to rename admin to admin123, it's ok.
i think it's better to set config in admin panel.
