The easiest, most effective way to secure WordPress in seconds.
Massively impressive. I have been recommending this to all my clients, especially one that I got because they had just been hacked.
Thank you so much for such good work!
I build WP sites for small businesses. Stumbling on this gem of a plugin was amazing.
It does the work of a dozen other plugins but with a nice control panel and brilliant attention towards the learning curve of many users. I feel much safer about every site this is installed on. Highly recommended.
note: I have not tested their support. Many settings may interfere with other plugins. Do your homework on each option.
this is a very useful plugin, and it is free, as everything should be :)
i have installed it on all my websites which i manage but one of got hacked regardless of the the security plugin. I was away for a week and came my site none existent.
I using the plugin for 3 months and it's really good. I suggest every blogger to use it.
The minimum is giving this plugin 5 stars!
Had a client's site go down twice in Feb 2013 - once by malware, the second through a brute force intrusion which resulted in a bloody hand plastered over their homepage and racial slurs (you know how it goes).
Since installing Better WP Security the site has received over 200 known hack attempts, all of which I was aware of thanks to this plugin...and all of which were unsuccessful. I now use this on all of my client websites and the peace of mind - not to mention effective security it adds - is priceless.
I have had some grief with timthumb when the plugin's write permissions are set to strict, and locked myself out once with the 404 protection handling, but as long as my IP is whitelisted and you verify plugin compatibility when going through the security checklist, you should be good.
very good plugin for free
I love the way this extension gives you details about the threat level and nature of various security issues. It also doesn't force you to make any changes. Thanks for all the great work on this tool.
Excellent job, guys! I've been hardening WordPress for quite some time now, and these are all of the stuff I've been doing. Imagine one plugin that's capable of replacing all that hard work (tedious, not to mention) - Better WP Security!
