Complete and Simple WordPress Security. Unrestricted, with no premium features.
I had a display problem after updating WPSF.
It was completely solved within 48 hours.
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.
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 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...
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.
The original WordPress Firewall worked very well, but hasn't been compatible with current versions of WordPress for a long time now. Version 2 introduced more problems than it solved, and isn't compatible with current WP versions either.
But not so this version. It solves all outstanding compatibility issues, adds some very useful new features (including possibly the best login protection currently available), but is still just as simple to use as the original.
Most other WordPress security solutions are too complex for the average user, and/or cause serious problems of their own. Many are also foils for paid subscriptions. None of that BS here: just good, simple and extremely effective protection for your WordPress blog.
I loved the original Firewall plugin by SEOEggheads and Firewall 2 was just as good.
However I was a bit concerned when I noticed that Firewall 2 had not been updated for 2 years - then I found WordPress Simple Firewall or Firewall 3 as I'm sure it will be called.
This plugin offered everything that Firewall 2 had, plus login security (love that GASP feature on the login area) and... you can transfer your old settings to the new plugin with a single click!
The plugin is great and the support is awesome, like I said, a free plugin with premium support.
I'm giving this plugin 5 stars, but only because I can't give it any more!
Many congrats to the plugin devs.
Plugin works as described. Add it to your arsenal now. :)
