I have been using this plugin when it was called Better WP Security. It has only been getting better. It should be part of any WP install and iTheme should work out a deal to have it part of the default WP install. This is by far the easiest to use and one of the more powerful security plugin I've used in WP. It is a must have plugin for anyone looking to secure a WP site.
Works great however there are some room for improvement mainly in user interface. The security side of things seems to be top notch.
Would prefer the file change emails to have filenames left justified so easier to go through the list.
Some things are probably my own doing. I installed Backup Buddy later and now I can't seem to remove this plugins scheduled backed emails.
It is a great free solution however at some point I want to look into the PRO version.
This is a fantastic plugin.
I notifies me constantly of any possible threats to my websites and allows me to all more IPs to my blocking list.
The only thing that would make this better, would be the option to log into one of my websites and then have a bulk settings, so that the settings (new banded IPs) can be added to all the other websites that I own. This would save time. Spyder Spanker Pro has this option
I use it for long time ago and is an excellent option for secure your site, very usefull. 5 stars!!
Simple, effective and free! What a great plug-in!
One of my favourite WP plugin.
Remember to add it and configure on a fresh WP installation. When you have tons of other plugins, sophisticated theme and lot of content, sometimes it may mess it up.
Also, remember to add your own IP to the whitelist to prevent potential lock-ups.
Perfect for us
I've installed it after an hacker attack and now my site works really perfect. And you cannot imagine before how many attacks and treats you are receiving every day..
It just works really well with loads of features for keeping WordPress secure. Thank you!
