Well it is awesome

But checking all your security settings ON caused a complete shutdown first.
Too secure ;-)

Very easy to use and powerful

It's good

It's not difficult to configure for a non-dev. It seems it gets the job done very well. Thank you.

it's ok but it's not all in one

Pretty good plugin. Just needs some improvement I really wish these security plugin authors would look at other security plugins and add features from them... I've had to double install security plugins for the last 5 years. Why not just give us one "ALL IN ONE SECURITY" plugin we can use??? huh

Missing some things that other plugins do like removing Author pages (These show your actual login name despite what you set in user profile and try to hide, this plugin asks you to set a different name though... pointless feature)

So lets say you install WordPress with username "BobGeldof" then go to profile and set your alias to be "Bobby" or "Admin", posts written by you will have the tag authored by "Admin". However mousing over the "Admin" link you can see author page is "yoursite/BobGeldof/" which is a pretty big security issue. It's much better to actually hide your login name by removing author pages.

There were some other things I noticed like the RSD and WLW and shortlinks and feed links in header which are all totally useless. WordPress versioning, etcetera etcetera. A few other issues I can't recall off the top of my head that need implementing.

nice plugin

I've tried several security plugins and this one seems very complete and easy to use.
The problems I've found: the maintenance mode doesn't work properly, and the hotlink prevention broke all the images from my own website. Also in my case, if I activate the "Block Spambots From Posting Comments", it breaks the comment option and nobody can comment my blog (not even myself when I'm logged in).

Great plugin but only in english
By , for WP 3.8.2

Great plugin with easy setup and a gauge to measure how good security is on the WP-Site. Unfortunately some of the features shown to the visitor of those sites are only in english, mainly the math question showing numbers and (english) words. Some wording shown to visitors is also in english which may cause problems to non-english speakers.

Hopefully, this is changed soon - I would even be willing to pay for a multisite license if that feature is somehow enabled.

Blocking text selection and mouse right butoon

We are using WordPress for more than 2 years. But after affected with hackers we searched and found this plugin. Very interesting and useful.

Thanks for your all efforts.

Wonderful strong and useful plugin for every WordPress installation! I encountered only one bug for now. On all my websites I enabled the 5G Blacklist/ Firewall protection and directly after that the core editing of images/ cropping thumbnails is not working anymore.
I get always this error message: "Could not load the preview image. Please reload the page and try again."
I even tried this with the Image Magick enabled instead of the GD library but nothing helps...

Very good security plugin

I greatly like All In One WP Security, and I like the newest additions.
Unfortunately, within the last week the hackers have found out how to get through the addition/subtraction test on the comment form because I have gotten more than a dozen spam comments that used to be blocked. Fortunately Akismet still catches them. But All In One Security needs to beef up its comment security or add something like CAPTCHA. (I have solved my immediate problem by adding the plugin Conditional CAPTCHA, but I would prefer to have everything handled by your integrated application which is so outstanding in every other way.)
