Running smoothly for almost a year now
By , for WP 3.5

I've been using this on my news site for almost a year now without any hiccups or slow-down.

It's been logging and stopping attempted intrusions and flagging IPs, allowing me to do some scripting based on the results. The only downside to the thing is the emails that can stack up if you don't disable the 'site lockout' notifications.

Provide a kind of dashboard with the different steps already completed to entirely secure your wordpress installation, easy to use

I don't know a whole lot about WordPress security but this plugin seems to do a damn good job of keeping my sites secure.

Very effective and comprehensive security for WP
By , for WP 3.5

Better WP Security puts all the other security plugins to shame with not only the effectiveness of it's functions, but also with how they left no stone unturned for plugging every potential security hole that could ever compromise a WordPress site. This plugin is a MUST-HAVE for every WordPress website operator.

If you are running a WordPress based website and you don't have this installed, you're making a mistake!

saved my a$$
By , for WP 3.5

I was just locked out of my own WP site by another security plugin that I used. It kept locking me out everytime I tried a password reset.

Finally a friend suggested Better WP Security and once I installed it, I realized just how much better it is then ANYTHING else out there.

This is simply the BEST WP security plugin that you can get.

Don't even wait, deactivate your other plugins and use Better WP Security.

You won't be disappointed.

Cant believe this is free actually. it is a great little plugin and did not slow down the site at all. I recommend this plugin to anyone using wordpress on a site that they do not want hacked.
