This is the worst plugin ever! It locked me out of my own website, without even being in the stopforum, but treated me as if I were. I send messages for support and no one ever replied! I did it through their website and even on the forum, nothing ever happened. I would give them 0 stars to be possible instead of 1. So bye bye plugin! I'm using Wordfence security now instead, which I highly recommend in case you are in search of real security for your site.
