I just wanted to post a followup here for anyone who was seeing this error on their Site Health page. In the latest release of my plugin I have fixed the Brute Force Login Protection so that the session_start call does not conflict with the REST API or any other sessions created after my own session check is complete.

Just to clarify one point on Richard’s post, session start has not been deprecated in PHP 8.1 or any other version of PHP currently available and I don’t expect it ever will be, but there are many reasons why sessions might fail on a server that does not have a properly configured temp space and the right permissions to create session cookies on the server. Therefore, I have engineered a backup technique for saving session info to temp files when the session_start fails to initialize a persistent session. Please try the new version and let me know if you have any other issues with this patch.
