Wordfence Security
[resolved] WordFence and Login Security Solutions (3 posts)

    I'm currently using Login Security Solutions (LSS - http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/login-security-solution/) and am wondering whether I can replace it with WordFence's login security options, or better leave these options disabled in WordFence and keep using Login Security Solutions aside it.

    My question is mainly about password policy and session timeout:
    Password Policies
    LSS offers the ability to define extra password requirements, like length and complexity and to define whether and when a password expires and if old passwords can be reused. WordFence does say it checks password strength on profile updates. Does it also add extra password requirements to the default password policy?
    Idle Timeout
    LSS offers the option to close inactive sessions after a specified time frame. Is this something WordFence does?

    Hi,

    We don't currently offer either of these features. We simply check password strength.

    I'm adding them as high priority feature requests.

    Regards,

    Mark.

    Hi!

    I've also been using LSS for a while and am evaluating Wordfence on a few sites. Another password related feature that LSS has that I'd like to see in Wordfence is the ability for an admin to change the passwords for all users on a site or multisite network so users need to create a new one based on the plugin's password strength policies.

    If Wordfence had these features on top of existing ones it would be almost perfect! ;)
