Best Security Plug in

My site got hacked
By , for WP 4.1

This is not a full security plugin for hack prevention. This is a toy plugin to make you have a false sense of security. I do not recommend it. I've had two sites with iThemes get hacked in the last 4 months. I will no longer use it.

If you have a e-commerce website that gets any real traffic and you are concerned with hack prevention, either pay for Pro (not recommended) or get a security professional to do security for your site.

Recovering from a hack IS NOT FUN for the average WordPress user or even pro user. Please be careful and do regular backups!

Great plugging!!!
