The best Firewall plugin ever
By , for WP 3.9.1

If you want a good and simple protection for your WP blog, I recommend this plugin because it does what it says, its simple and powerful. Good Job guys, keep it up!

Stopped login attempts when nothing else could.
By , for WP 3.9.1

For over a 12 hour period I was being botnet attacked every 30 seconds with login attempts from different IP addresses. Nothing I did suggested by anyone or my useless host shut it down. Finally I installed this and enabled most of the settings and it stopped all login attempts! Love is not a big enough word for what I'm feeling toward this plugin.

It was very easy to set up, even reading the instructions on what the different options were was right there, no having to go looking through pages of documentation only to be more confused than before. Thank you developer! This should be a plugin everyone installs for added protection.

Very impressed with both plugin and support
By , for WP 3.9.1

I recently started using this plugin on quite a few of my sites and found it to be an excellent and well maintained product.
I was even more impressed with it when I has a small auto update bug which was responded to by the developer almost instantly!
I'm very happy to rate this plugin with 5 stars, as it rightly deserves, and can heartily recommend it as a "default/required" plugin on every WordPress website.

Great
By , for WP 3.9.1

Hi,

This is doing a great job blocking spam. Akismet is not working well these days.

Will be good if the anti-spam thing is released as a stand alone plugin because I don't need other features and the plugin is bloated with all of them like Jetpack.

Too complicated
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am sure it is a great plugin.
I watch the video, but it wasn't same as the plugin I just install.
With limited knowledge I didn't wanted to lock myself out. because asking quite bits things to be done.
When it comes to editing or setups related to php files, I just stay away.
I have very bead experience with codes.
I wish it was much better user friendly type.

We had a issue with BBpress so we contacted Paul at icontrolwp.com.

Paul solved the problem and now is both BBpress and WordPress Simple Firewall working. It took just a few hours from we posted the issue to the site was running correctly. Quite impressing.

Thank you Paul

The perfect firewall. Stands up to security testing.
By , for WP 3.9.1

I love this Firewall. It is easy to use and has a great range of features. The notification emails are useful, and all the options provide adjustments that I would need.

Also, we had some professional security & penetration testing done against this firewall. We are pleased to report that the firewall held up extremely well and did not show any major vulnerabilities.

A great firewall!
