    To have maximum security. can these three plugins used at the same time without facing any problem and conflict?
    BulletProof Security
    Wordfence Security
    Better WP Security

    And do you suggest any other useful plugin to make a wordpress website more secure that can be used without conflict?

    BulletProof Security and Worfence do not have any conflicts or issues.
    BulletProof Security and Better WP Security do have some issues. Do not use Server Tweaks in Better WP Security. BulletProof Security is already doing this in a much more comprehensive way.

    We only use BulletProof Security Pro. ;)

    OK, thanks a lot for your help. But now i want to know does the free version of BulletProof Security has all features of Better WP Security?
    And what are main features of BulletProof Security Pro in addition to the free version of it?

    That is a good question. Let me phrase this in a way that does not offend anyone. We have tested the effectiveness of several features in Better WP Security and decided that we would not include or add them to BulletProof Security because we found them to be not very effective. It is up to each person to choose what they want. So our opinion is just our opinion in this case.

    You will find a feature comparison of BPS and BPS Pro on the Plugin FAQ tab page:

    Thanks a lot for your detailed excellent answers.
    I have some more questions and it will e nice if you guide me with them too.
    1. As you said, if i want to use better wp security too, i should not use tweaks features. And i want to know can't i use any of them? For example it has some "Header Tweaks" like "Remove WordPress Generator Meta Tag" . Can't i use from this option too?
    2. Just to be sure, i just can't use "tweaks" section of better wp security and can i use all other parts of this plugin at the same time with BulletProof Security?
    3. If i added some codes to .htaccess file before installing BulletProof Security, after installing the, should i add them again after installing BulletProof Security?
    4. Is it better that i install and configure WP better security firstly and then BulletProof Security or i can configureBulletProof Security first?

    You can of course experiment with Better WP Security Server Tweaks. We do not troubleshoot or support issues or problems that are caused by other security plugins. You would need to contact that plugin author for help and support for those issues/problems in that plugin.

    Everything that is in Better WP Security Server Tweaks is already in BPS standard code and much, much more. In other words, you would be adding redundant code that is less sophisticated and that does not have a built-in method to whitelist things as needed. We have spent a lot of time (years) creating security rules/filters with the built-in capability to whitelist any/all security rules/filters by using the BPS Custom Code feature.

    We recommend that you do not use Server Tweaks, but you can of course experiment or make this work by doing whatever is necessary in the Better WP Security plugin's .htaccess code.

    If you use the BPS Custom Code feature then you can combine all of your custom or other .htaccess code to create a new custom Master .htaccess file and activate it. See the Custom Code Video Tutorial link on the BPS Custom Code tab page.

    See the answer above for your 4th question.

    This plugin is one that I use. As far as I know, it does not conflict with other plugins.

    We only use BulletProof Security Pro.
    Better WP Security (iThemes Security) is no longer compatible with BPS or BPS Pro.
