Adds some extra security to your WordPress with only one click.
There's a lot of WordPress security plugins with many many options and pages to setup. And that is fine if you know what to do. But most of the times, you don't need so much or simply you're not sure about what to set or not.
This plugin adds some extra security to your WordPress with only one click. No options page, just activate it!
Like many other security plugins SAR One Click Security adds well known .htaccess rules, but only the ones probed to be safe to use in almost any type of site (including WooCommerce stores), to protect your WordPress from common attacks. This allows you to have a safer WordPress without worries about what protection you should be using.
(*) If your theme uses TimThumb, you can disable that blocking rule, check FAQ before installing the plugin to see how.
It has been tested in many servers including large providers like HostGator, Godaddy and 1&1 with optimal results, and it will work fine in any decent hosting service (that allows you to set options from .htaccess files).
Anyway, if you get any problem after activating the plugin, check FAQ for instructions on how to manually uninstall it. Or maybe check it before install the plugin if you're not sure about your hosting provider policy about .htacces
To apply above mentioned security rules simply install and activate the plugin, no options page, no user setup!
If you need to remove the security rules for some reason, simply deactivate the plugin. If you want to add them again, activate the plugin again, that easy ;)
And remember, if your theme uses TimThumb, check FAQ before installing the plugin.
There are some plugins that uses direct access to .php files in the wp-conteng/plugins/ directory. That, in my honest opinion, is bad practice and should be avoided.
If you use some of these plugins, you can't use this.
