Deceptive description
By ,

The free version protects your entire blog - that's all.

expensive and freemium politic
By , for WP 3.8.1

I think it's too expensive considering the target of use and the per number of license buy is a big limitation.
Better pay once and install it wherever you want.
No changes possible in "free" version.
Better other solutions.

Safari remains double open
By ,

Hi,
the plugin is smart, but does not work with Safari:

1. did not ask for password.
2. As I entered the page-name differently the plugin asked for the password but a wrong password was enough to pass.

I think there is still some work to do ..

Damn Rubbish

Perfect way to deceive customers....give 0.01% free, but pay for 99.99%, another tin of snake oil.

Messes up blog even after being removed
By , for WP 3.5.1

This plugin messed up my blog.

Even after I removed it, I would occasionally get the following error:

"You have been logged out.
The password you submitted was wrong.
Security Provided by Platinum Mirror LTD (programmer: Daniel Chatfield)
login / Password
Login"

I asked for support a week ago but to no avail. Plugin author is not responding and my blog is still messed up.

Until my issue has been resolved, I won't remove this review.

Think twice before using. There are many free, better alternatives out there.

Misleading information

Misleading description. Most of the best features have to be paid for.

Only premium worthwhile
By , for WP 3.5

Doesn't do anything useful unless you pay for it. This is really a demo for the Premium version more than it is a working plugin.

Does not Function Properly.
By , for WP 3.5.1

Like the other reviewer, the password I set did not work. Even worse, after deactivating the plugin and removing it. It still shows up as m index page. I tried reinstalling, turning it off, disabling it, and removing it, but nothing works. Frustrating...
