    iThemes Security have a setting which will auto “Block” all user-agent, which is reported by

    I would like to know:
    1) User-gent that ithemes used from . This is checked and surely they are bad-user-agent?
    2) Just someone “example: me” send a report to that “” is a bad user agent, then iThemes will automatic add to bad user agent without any confirm?


    1. User-agents were carefully screened, user-agents are periodically removed.

    2. There is no automation to the list. User-agents were carefully screened by a person.

    If you find a given user-agent is causing any unexpected issues you may delete the user-agent text in question from the entry within your .htaccess file.

    Alternately, you may uncheck and save the use Blacklist to remove the entire list.

    @hackrepair Thank you so much for explain.
