Must have for every WP install
By , for WP 3.9.1

I don't know a lot about security, and this plugin is must have. Is very user friendly and easy to use even for not power users. Highly recommend for every body, and have installed it on all my clients sites.

The Best
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've evaluated most of the other security plugins out there and iThemes is without a doubt the best. Comprehensive, well documented and supported, and stable. Essential for any WP site. Install immediately!

Top recommended by WordPress experts

Very clear and easy to use.
Backup your WordPress database before using, of course!
Implement one element at a time, and test thoroughly, before implementing another. Several security features don't work with all hosting account setups.
First one to implement should probably be to limit login attempts.
Several other plugins have a few of the features this one has; best to only have one (this one) handle a security feature, duplicates just make server work harder.

Good Tool

I have been using it for a month now and it works great!
