Simple approach

Better WP security gives you an easy approach to WP security, all basic features in on go. Recommended!

Good plugin for the security newbie
By , for WP 3.5

It's a great tool for everyone not aware of every path a hacker could take to take over a WordPress site. It does explain the dangers and asks if you want to limit it or not, so it gives you a lot of freedom and choices regarding your own site. Great stuff.

works great but could use some more explanation
By , for WP 3.5

Some of the features I don't quite understand and there aren't very good explanations for them. But for the most part this works really well!

Good stuff
By , for WP 3.4.2

Overall it's very useful and helped me a lot. The only gripe I have is email notifications about a file which has changed but no details whatsoever.

Very solid security pack
By , for WP 3.4.2

I use this plugin on all the sites I build to protect them mostly from brute force attacks and its intrusion detection ability. I like the database rename option too. It can get in conflict with some themes so I usually go with a pre-set list that I know work on all themes, and then try one option at a time to see how far I can go with protecting each site without over-doing it and causing the site to misbehave. All in all, a very well built tool and I havent looked back in the several years Im using it on dozens of websites.

Excellent
By , for WP 3.4.1

I particularly like the "hide backend feature" - any hacker who wants to try getting in through **/wp-admin first has to guess the custom address you've given your admin pages... he gets a 404 and if he tries too often he is banned !
The file change warning does have hiccups - you need to check exclusions and, at the moment Better security send one, blank, email before sending one that contains the information.

I've been hit once, but not since then.
By , for WP 3.4.2

After my first wordpress site got highjacked, I searched high and wide. Finally this plugin seemed to do its job right. Till now things are working well.

It really helps with little things that would requrie quite some manual hacking: change login url.

Thanks.
