Good

Good plugin, life!

Great for Security
By , for WP 3.5.1

There's a reason why this plugin is mandatory for some hosting providers. It prevents brute force attacks very well. I think it should be moved into core!

Very happy with free version

Very happy with the free version. Does everything it says, and has a clear interface.

Great job. Thank you!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I kept seeing attempts at brute forcing one of my sites the other day, searched and found this plugin. It has stopped attempts on 2 sites.
And I agree with jwheck - don't use "admin" as a username.

Two Thumbs Up
By , for WP 3.5.1

My blog gets about a dozen attempted break-ins a month. It's humbling to know that people would want to break into my site. On the other hand, it's scary to see how many attempted break-ins I get even for my small site. I like the email notifications I can set up for myself.

Simply Sublime
By , for WP 3.4.1

Lots of security plugins, but for the most common hack, this is simply sublime.

Does what it says on the tin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Great, invaluable, is on my list of default plugins has stopped many attacks. It is also wise to change the default username from 'admin' as since installing this I have realised how many, pathetic, brute force attacks go on. I originally installed it after being hacked by a teenager from Algeria - I guess it keeps him off the streets.

Should Be in Core
By , for WP 3.5.1

Several sites had been hacked, so I cleaned up everything, and the main change I made was change the admin passwords. Then I installed this tool. Within 24 hours I got a notice that an IP from the Ukraine had been blocked.

This should be part of core, it's just good common sense.
