Reviews

Got me an A+ for my Content Security Policy

After spending over a week studying the requirements to have a good website online with a CSP I found this WP plugin which gave me on a scale of A-F, an E, a D and then finally an A+ for our website Content Security Policy. A very essential plugin!

Excellent

Very convenient, great that it has typical options inbuilt for each header.

Would like to see some extra headers added to the security section. I currently add these as custom headers, but would be better if they were grouped under security:
X-Content-Security-Policy
X-WebKit-CSP
Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only
X-Content-Security-Policy-Report-Only
X-WebKit-CSP-Report-Only

Excellent

The plugin does exactly what it says it does – essential for a secure website, and many of these are not often implemented. I searched for hours on how to implement these headers manually, but every website had a different syntax basically. This plugin just works. Thanks to the author, and as well for continued development and support. This should have more usage and reviews.
