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

Blocked my own IP permanently
By , for WP 4.5.2

I was using this plugin for a while without any problems. I was curious a few moments ago, that I was unable to reach my website. After checking the hosting provider and functionality via FTP, I found out that it must be working. I checked the received mail again and found the cause. This stupid plugin blocked my own IP adress permanently! I just wonder why, because the email says,that I was blocked after trying to reach a file that doesnt exists. The truth is however that I just started my computer! Now I have to login over T-Mobile. Fortunately there is a whitelist option, I will give it another try and in case it blocks me again, it will the last time it ever blocked someone on my site.
