    Hey guys,

    Anyone ever heard of this service from Life is Good Labs? They offer security check plugin, and then offer free Pro service to keep blog safe. My problem is 1. they ask for ftp information to fix issues on blog and 2. they privacy policy, terms of use, and support pages are blank.

    Clearly sounds like a fake service. Wanted to see if anyone every tried them or heard anything.

    Thanks,
    Viktor

  2. I highly recommend doing your own security work.

    I understand and I do as much as I can. But lots of bloggers are that, bloggers. They don't have knowledge to do it, so it would be nice to have a service to do some work for them. Just like firewall on a pc.

    I was just curious to see if anyone heard of these guys! They sound shady and I don't want other people (with less knowledge) to give them their ftp info and get royally screwed.

    WP team needs to look into this.

    Even if they looked into it, there's nothing they could do if they found shady activity.

    Basically, this has to boil down to common sense. If you trust them, great. If you think they're shady, don't use them.
