Plugin should be removed from access

I spent money on the Pro version. Was promising in beginning but no support, no contact, no update capability, not even a peep of life for months and months. Caused financial loss and embarrassment to entire community. Security issues threaten to block domain from public. Look elsewhere. You can believe the free version won’t be any better.


I purchased the pro version as my first plugin. Most of the features did not work from the beginning. I surmised it was something I was doing wrong for so many features not to work. Had NO response from support until PayPal contacted them for a refund. They will not honor support or a refund which is guaranteed. I would not use this plugin for the obvious reason. I am not alone with getting ZERO support.


This plugin is not user friendly, customer support took 1 month to get back to me! I am looking for something else! It does not do all it is supposed to and when customer did contact me and saw it wasn’t working they couldn’t fix it. I gave them FTP access to my site and then never heard from them again! Buyer BEWARE!!!


I paid for the developer license of this plugin and was satisfied with the customer support when I had easy questions for them. However, when they made a crude work around to fix a problem with one plugin they created another one with what I can only assume is multiple plugins revolving around the wp_login hook. When I requested support from the developer I never heard back from them and this was over 8 days ago and multiple emails and this plugin was affecting many of my production sites. I would have thought they would at the very least respond and say they were too busy, whatever… But NOTHING… VERY disappointed!
