The easiest, most effective way to secure WordPress in seconds.
Bottom line, so far, so good.
I had installed the "HC Custom WP-Admin URL" WordPress plugin and have been adding additional configuration to my htaccess file over the last few days after experiencing a brute force attempt on my wordpress site.
Unfortunately, the "HC Custom WP-Admin URL" plugin does not play nice with some other plugins, and most importantly to me, was causing the styling on my registration page to not load. I manually changed my htaccess file to address this, but it was a pain, and I know that I would probably have to replace this htaccess file and make additional edits to wp php any time I would update WordPress in the future.
This morning, I found the "Better WP Security" plugin, which allows you to change your login, admin, and registration links to whatever you specify. It also works seamlessly with my other plugins and allows the registration styling to load properly. It has many configuration options that allow you to better secure your site and protect against attacks. It modifies your htaccess file cleanly in one section all from the plugin settings database and has an easy to understand, color-coded dashboard that allows you to see what features you have enabled along with the protection gained from each.
I highly recommend this plugin, and I cannot thank the author, designers and developers enough for writing and maintaining such an excellent tool.
Takes a little work to understand all the options but it's nice to know they are all there if you need them.
Better WP Security is a standard part of my every WordPress installation. Very comprehensive, easy to use, has clear explanation of all features right there on the admin pages, and does a pretty good job even with the initial "all-in-one" fix that can be manually adjust later as needed.
I haven't felt this secure in a long time. Thank you!
I'm using this plugin on Google Search recommendation and to tell you the truth the plugin is awesome. Loved the simple interface it allowed me so much powerful features to control the security of my website. Thank you to the developers for providing such amazing features for free.
This plugin is unbelievable, easy to use and makes your site really uncrackable! :)
We love this plugin so much. It is easy to use, and customize. We use it on our website and all our client websites as well.
Especially helpful when building a site from scratch. This is the first plugin-in I add and run from the start.
Pretty non-intrusive, works well.
