Удобно. Информативно. Обновляется регулярно.

No longer working

Admin screen is blank. Plugin owner is unresponsive. Try something else.

crashed our sites & feedback on uninstall experience
By , for WP 4.5.3

We were using the pro version of this plugin, which overreacted on 404 errors and blocked google from crawling our site, creating thousands of 403 errors and taking us out of google search for several days.

We also noticed soon after de-installing that wp config file permissions were changed to 644. If that's a feature of the current plugin version upon turning it off it's irresponsible. DB tables for the plugin also remain, requiring manual steps.

Pls switch to another provider.

Buggy software

Itheme's plugins does not work "out of the box"

Tried installing their software on 3 different WP installs, all had different problems, and i've spend hours googling, and talking to their support.

i finally gave up, and install another backup plugin that worked out of the box.

Big Company buys little company - removes features

This was a great plugin until iThemes bought it. You can no longer hide the login location. DON'T UPDATE THE PLUGIN ON YOUR SITES. The new updated takes away features that you've come to rely on and will break the login location on your sites.

These guys are the worst

Their payola scheme is in full force. Horrible support also!

Last version is a very bad downgrade!
By , for WP 4.5.3

This plugin has been a must have for a very long time, BUT since latest updates, the iThemes team changed all the interface and did something conmplicated, difficulte to read and difficult to configure because you have to move from screen to screen when you had in prtevious versions a fast scroll down menu and one shoot screen for all configurations.
This is really weird...
Time to test other security plugins alas!

Best security out there
