A comprehensive, user-friendly, all in one WordPress security and firewall plugin for your site.
I am impressed by the good features of this plugin. Excellent login protection, which is a frequent subject of attacks. Also, this plugin enables scheduled backups, hotlinking protection, common blacklisted IP addresses, and fake Googlebot detection. These are all excellent and important features for protecting WordPress, and optimizing a site to protect resources from being wasted by spammers and hackers.
All in One WP Security offers so much functionality, it is quite possible that you cannot apply it all but it should be pretty much the first plugin you install because it makes securing your site *easy* - and if you take the trouble to read the plentiful explanations with each individual function you'll also learn what happens.
Just about the only thing I haven't found yet is instructions on how to restore the automatic database backup it can do, but that's probably because I haven't looked for it yet (it sensibly advises you to take a backup when you make changes that can take your site down, but I have as yet not managed to break it - a new experience for me :) ).
The support is great too, not that you'd need it much.
Frankly, this should be installed as part of WordPress itself.
I had to uninstall WordFence as it was causing memory issues on my server. I'm glad as it led me to finding this plug in.
What I like most is that you have many options to select and each one is well explained for those of us who are non-technical.
This plugin is definitely on my short list of base plugins on new WordPress installations.
Just Simply AWesome. Simple and robust features. No need of any other Security plugin. It succeeds to keep upto its name.
Simply crazy this is a great plugin they have put in a lot of good features- I was very impressed in a short time.
Doesn't stop them coming, but they don't get through
As several of the reviewers said, it's a great security package if you want to harden a WordPress site. But, when on a multisite installation, sometimes it prevents visitors from commenting.
Had to deactivate it since commenting is part of the process of blogging, here...
Searching in the forum for a solution is done by browsing endlessly until you find a post related to your problem but with no answer. Meh.
Thank you. Its the best WP plugin i have ever seen.
