iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)

The easiest, most effective way to secure WordPress in seconds.

NOTE: iThemes Security makes significant changers to your database and other site files which can be problematic, so a backup is strongly recommended before making any changes to your site with this plugin. While problems are rare, most support requests involve the failure to make a proper backup before installation.

  1. BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Back up your WordPress database, config file, and .htaccess file. We recommend using BackupBuddy, our WordPress backup plugin for a complete site backup.
  2. Upload the zip file to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Unzip
  4. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
  5. Visit the Security menu for checklist and options
