Reviews

Date / Time

How much harder can it be to allow setting of the date and time that the keys will be changed? How does one know when they have been changed?

Good Plugin

I agree with a couple of the other commenters, this is a great way to offer another layer of protection on your WP sites. However, your wp-config.php must be in the root. I guess you have to pick which you would like to go with. I will choose Salt Shaker’s way for now.

Possibly, the developer will take notice of these comments and provide an update that will resolve this issue.

Works only if the wp-config is in the root

Maybe a good idea, but it works only, if the wp-config.php is in the root of your WP installation.
If you have moved it one level higher for security reasons, this plugin takes no effect at all. Sad, the idea could be good …

Simple

Straightforward way to do a tedious but crucial thing. Will now happen regularly on my sites. Thanks.
