Support » Plugin: All In One WP Security & Firewall » Better than iThemes offering

  • Started using this plugin after the popular iThemes security plugin broke my site. This one does not and covers the basic features and more. Beware that the newly installed default settings are NOT secure at all! There should be a basic secure default setting (like brute force protection and checking for “admin” username and weak passwords) on installation/activation – *** devs please note ***

    Thanks for the review and feedback.

    Enabling one of the brute force features upon activation by default is not a good way to go from the perspective of the user and also for support reasons. Just look at the amount of support questions we get from users who have activated a brute force feature but still haven’t grasped the idea that their login page has been hidden and that they will need to use a special URL to access it. So keep in mind that this happens for cases where users supposedly have consciously activated the brute force feature – imagine if we apply this to the mass audience by default….

    Also, forcing the activation of features which make a dramatic change to how a system behaves is not good practice – it is better to leave that choice to the owner of the site so they can have the opportunity to anticipate the effects of such features.
