FAQ

How is malware code found ?

Every suspicious code is sent to a central database to be compared. If the code is unknown, it will be checked by human intervention.

Will my files be deleted ?

If malware code is found, files will either be deleted or edited if you have entered a valid API key for your website. If it is a new file that was created by the virus, it will be deleted, if it is only a piece of code that was injected in an existing file, the piece of code will be removed.

What is the firewall service ?

It is a list of htaccess rules that protect your website from being hacked.

How do I get an API key ?

You can buy it via our website, you will receive it within a few minutes.

Reviews

free ver basically useless

The free version of this plugin is basically just a placeholder or if you prefer a marketing channel for the authors to get you to do a paid upgrade. After installation your site gets plastered with red warnings aggressively looking for you to upgrade to a paid plan.

I have zero problem with people making money but given this is the WP.org plugins repo I’d have expected the plugin to do a lot more.

So far so good

It either deleted or corrected the files that were corrupted. In case of a doubt, it submits the file for human check up.
