Thanks, works fine!

poor support and faulty products
By , for WP 4.2.3

I have spent 5 months trying to patiently get the Backbuddy and Security products to work on my client sites. Security side locks me out of the website and has caused conflicts with other plugins ongoing.

I get the hosting blamed, even when different hosts over the 5 months in attempt to fix this.

I then get told when asking for partial refund that I had use for 5 months and downloaded, so no refund.

Given I did everything asked of me and tested for so long with errors every day....surely this proves the products are not reliable and as a consumer I should be respected in my request.

Instead I see a pattern of blaming the hosting companies and myself...but never accepted any responsibility from their own company or development team.

Very unhappy after a significant purchase of the suite which as been useless and I would NEVER trust on client sites in the future.

Pretty good stuff!

I have had / am having an issue with hiding the admin login, but other than that, very happy. It plays nice with IWP and with CloudFlare.

Easy and thorough
By , for WP 4.2.3

Easy to set up, great feature with the dashboard list of suggested items to add, divided into groups of priority. Extensive, but with a user friendly panel that makes it easier to get an overview. So far my go-to plugin for added security.

Great Plugin
