WordPress Website Security Protection: Effective...Reliable...Easy to use
When it works, I'm sure it's providing great protection, but it conflicts with everything - it doesn't break anything beyond repair but it constantly needs to be re-activated. It hasn't messed anything up for me but I'll be randomly doing things in the WP admin - things that don't touch .htaccess like editing a blog post - and all of a sudden it pops up saying my site is no longer secured by BPS.
When that happens I have to:
1) Click a button in BPS Security
2) Click a radio button, then another button in BPS Security.
3) Click another radio button, then another button in BPS Security.
4) Change the permissions for .htaccess so W3 Total Cache can redeploy, since re-activating BPS de-activates W3 Total Cache.
5) Click a button to redeploy W3 Total Cache.
Nevermind that it takes 3 steps to activate this thing every time, there are many more hoops to jump through. After 3 months of dealing with this, it's just not worth it. There are easier alternatives.
Recommended! most complete WP secure
Have been using the free version of Bulletproof on a number of sites for over a year now and Bulletproof Pro for around 6 months. Very impressed with the functionality and with each update it gets better, and easier to use - particularly if you're not that confident 'under the hood'. The support is second to none. Thank you Edward
Simply the Best Protection for WP.
Website stopped working
It protects the .htaccess file of websites with just some simple clicks without need to have any knowledge about it. However i prefer that it does all things with just one click and i hope we see it in the next versions.
the plugin is hardcore and a little confusing here and there for novice like me. But i have no doubt it works really well and the support is absolutely AWESOME.
i think this htaccess, server level security is very important as opposed to just the firewall login based stuff. this does that too but the lower level security stuff seems unique.
Downloaded and installed on a 123-reg shared server and works perfectly!
It took only a couple of minutes to install and there are some really helpful tips on how to add even more protection to stop the bad guys trying to login to your site.
Thanks for a fantastic plugin guys and hats off to you for all your hard work.

Great ! A must have ! Strong protect and easy install.
I have upgraded to Pro on all my tough sites (one-time fee per sites owner) and we'll see how free holds on some others. The SUPPORT is fabulous and the extra help and WordPress tips are invaluable -- can't find anywhere else.
There is a learning curve, but most is wizard now, and support is very fast. Instructional Videos are great. Their forum is immense and they cull and prune for relevancy daily. I'm a VERY HAPPY customer who has benefited a great deal especially during these months of brute force attacks and login hammering.
Weird usernames, minimum 14 character passwords and Bullet Proof Security has saved my top blogs.
Thank you to their team.
