Excellent Security Option
By , for WP 3.8.1

Powerful features yet easy to use and understand. Couple this with iControlWP also from the same developer and you have a great security solution.

What a lot of features in this great plugin. Each day it blocks several attacks on our sites. Thank you iControlWP!

The best login protection
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin gives possibly the best login protection, that is currently available, and is still simple to use.

Updates, security and spam protection
By , for WP 3.8.1

I’m not sure whether “WordPress Simple Firewall” is still an apt description for this plugin or not; there are lots of options that can be configured and functions that can be turned on or off!  This plugin works best in conjunction with the iControlWP WordPress Management Control Panel. I’m still at the early stages of testing and implementing this across the WP sites I manage, but it appears to be a valuable addition to a suite of products to manage/maintain and secure WordPress.

Excellent support!

I had a display problem after updating WPSF.
It was completely solved within 48 hours.

Perfect!

Simple & Extremely Effective
By , for WP 3.7.1

Simple to use and very powerful protection. The "simple" feature is a real plus for people like me who are not code savvy.

Another major plus is that the authors respond quickly to questions and I don't feel like I'm being pressured to make a purchase beyond the features described in the original plug-in blurb. Far from it, I got a lot more than I expected.

Picked up when GASP started failing
By , for WP 3.5

After Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin stopped working, I replaced it with WordPress Simple Firewall. In the 13 days since, WPSF trapped 301 spam comments, missing none.

I'm a convert.

Thank you
By ,

Thank you for this great security application. I am using a cheap shared hosting (128 MB ram limit). I've tested all popular security plugins for wordpress. This is easy to use and fast.

But, It could be better if there was a DOS/Flood protection...

Great Plugin, Easy to Use, Many Options
By , for WP 3.6

This is a great little plugin with many options. I find this plugin much better than WordPress Firewall 2. Plus the authors are quick and helpful in their responses.
