    Liked the plugin but cannot sustain the subscription atop all other subscriptions. Already have fail2ban installed and running at the OS level, which is actually free, making the plugin redundant.

    If you’re not a devops, or uncomfortable with the cli, then this plugin is a better option for your site and you should absolutely consider installing and using.

    I also realize that the logs (output) is part of the subscription fee – but not seeing anything, anything, about the effectiveness of the plugin made me wonder if it was doing something other than taking up a slot in my plugin list. -1 for for stealth mode to encourage subscriptions.

    I think WP devs desperately need a better pricing model. Had this been an outright purchase in the $40 range, I probably would have bought it. But as a very small, ecom site, supporting the plugin isn’t possible. -1 star for the pricing model.

    tl;dr: essential plugin if you’re uncomfy with devops but factor subscription costs into the ROI for your site.
