    The main problem I’ve found is the settings don’t save when you click save or else iThemes randomly changes them. This causes many emails to be sent to admins who do not need them. Also, you have hundreds of messages of files changed and users being locked out. The messages are not understandable to the average user and cause panic because you think something drastic has happened. Every time you log in, it tries to force you to pick a new password. I’ve had to update the settings every day trying to stop all the emails. It’s been nothing but trouble for me. I’m getting rid of it.
