Saved my website already
By , for WP 3.5.1

For some reason my previous joomla website seemed to be a magnet for hackers, installed this on my new wordpress site and straight away it was showing someone/something was trying to force my admin password and gain access. This little plugin changed that.. used the recommended settings -and now made life a lot trickier for them!

Thankyou.. and well done!

This has been a life saver. It's made setting up new, secure, sites so much easier. It's the first thing I install every time.

Showed me how vulnerable I was
By , for WP 3.5.1

Before I found out about the security holes BWP covered, I thought I was safe just using a login lock-out plugin. That was before I installed what I thought was a reliable portfolio app and a day later found plugins that I hadn't installed, and pages and posts that I hadn't made. It may have just been coincidence, but I took no chances, deleted all trace of the portfolio app, cleaned up the plugins that had been installed (and checked the database for any trace) and immediately looked for a new security package. Better WP Security was the highest rated and best reviewed, and so I went with it. Thanks to closing back doors I didn't know existed, I can now monitor all the (so far) futile attempts to get into my site. I had no idea my obscure little site would be the target of so many attempts, I get more attempts to break in daily than I get legitimate views.

I highly recommend BWP for everyone, and I mean everyone who runs a WordPress site.

Easy to install and configure.

Hasn't caused any trouble on my site, unlike similar plugins.
