Good but can be better

The best plugin in its category. However some things might be better, for instance memory leask during dabatase backups...

Security plugin of my choice
By ,

iThemes security is the security plugin of my choice, covers all others plugins in a better way, and more.

It's not perfect yet, Its blocking my edits in W3TC to minification...

Great & easy
By ,

it enhanced my website security a lot. I no more have weird comments and new users as admins on my website. It also reduced my host's traffic which was all from hacking resources. I'm way more secured than before.

Two Problems I found:
1. Since it restricts lots of open features, many plugins stop functioning properly.
2. To fix some problem, I need to retrieve access manually and not through iTheme security. uninstalling the plugin doesn't bring default settings. for instance, the .htaccess gets missed up and I have to recopy a new version manually.

Very helpful

Like most CMSs, WordPress has a lot of options and configurations. Even using just the first few layers of security with this plugin helps to reduce your risk of getting exploited.

Don't even know it's there

The plug-in does what it needs to do so I don't need to think about it. That's the hallmark of a great app \ plug-in

Good security with room for improvement
By , for WP 3.9.1

Works great however there are some room for improvement mainly in user interface. The security side of things seems to be top notch.

Would prefer the file change emails to have filenames left justified so easier to go through the list.

Some things are probably my own doing. I installed Backup Buddy later and now I can't seem to remove this plugins scheduled backed emails.

It is a great free solution however at some point I want to look into the PRO version.
