    I'm maxing out the rating even though I'm struggling with the settings. But that is probably my fault and not the plugin. This is a vital solution - a one-stop answer rather that having several solutions.
    The Admin Access Restriction is a little intimidating so I'll avoid it for now. The "filled in" stars in the Admin Access Key are there for what? If I save the settings is that key saved also? Makes me nervous. I would feel better if it were blank.
    This plugin is a keeper but will take time to completely understand. It is laid out very well - in sections that can be enabled or not.
    I can see it only getting better.

    Thanks for the positive review... I can understand if the admin access makes you nervous, but I've built the plugin so that if you ever get locked out, you can turn it all off using the ultimate admin access - FTP.

    Have a read at this that outlines the admin access: http://www.icontrolwp.com/2014/05/wordpress-security-simple-firewall-plugin-part-2-self-protection/

    And also, here, to learn how to turn off the whole firewall in case you can't get back in - I've had no reports of people getting locked out:

    Thanks!
