Inconsistent and poor support
By , for WP 3.9.1

I really wanted to like this plugin. It is supposed to do exactly what I wanted it for, but unfortunately it is often not working and does not allow access to my site consistently. Basically, when the password is entered the page fails to connect regardless of which browser is used. Therefore, I am constantly having to choose between disabling the plugin and leaving my personal site vulnerable to random public viewing or closing down my site to everyone for an indeterminate length of time.

When I first installed it a couple months ago, it worked great for a couple weeks. Then it stopped working unexpectedly and inexplicably. I got a quick response from the plugin creator on the support forum, but no real help or explanation. He could not, or at least did not, inform me that I had any incompatibility issues. After a week or two I noticed an update, which I downloaded, and the plugin was working for several weeks. Then about a week ago the plugin stopped working again. This time no response from the support forum and I have no idea when or if it will be working again.

At the start of every WordPress project I install a standard set of tried and tested plugins that I'd struggle to replace. This is one of them.

Hello
It is a really good plugin.
But is it possible to enter in the website without any password???
Indeed, with google analytics, I have seen some connections of people I don't know.
Waiting for your feedback
Regards

Gets the job done, and looks good too. A professionally designed solution for simple password-protection.

Exactly what we needed for our clients.

Better than using a maintence plugin
