Can't undestand how Access Rules work

Can't undestand how Access Rules work

Hello all,
Happy New Year, first of all.
I just cannot understand how the Security Assist Access Rules work.
I simply would like to show an error message when the user try to log-in but I'm not able to set the Access Rule correctly.

Here what I have done:

I created the login form and added the 'Security assist authenticate user' sb. It works.
If the user enters the correct credentials it is redirected to the success page.

But when the user enters wrong credentials or he is not registered nor activated, no errors are displayed.

If I use the Security Assist > "show region" sb I'm asked to use an access rule.

But where can I get a clue on how to create an access rule from scratch?
I'm trying to understand them using the online help but it only explains the various dialog boxes I'm facing.
There are no real uses examples.
Is there a tutorial specific for undestanding access rules?

I thank you in advance for any suggestion or help.
