Best Security Ever
By , for WP 3.6

This software lets you change your admin username without too much difficulty and blocks you from all sorts of vicious attacks which has been happening a lot lately. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs security for their website.

A sturdy security plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is a reliable and solid security plugin. The plugin Dashboard makes it quite easy to get started with the settings for the plugin and System Tweaks affords reasonable granularity in fine tuning different areas of protection.

It really works!

My client's site is constantly being attacked and nothing I did seemed to work. He wasn't ready to pay for secure hosting yet, so I tried Better WP Security as a last step before telling my client he would have to pay more for hosting. I'm delighted to say that once I went through all of the security features, my client's site was no longer being hijacked to show hair replacement therapies on Google. Thanks so much!

Terrific plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Excellent security features. It automatically blocks hackers trying to break into my site from Eastern Europe and China several times a week. I use it in conjunction with Securi's security scanning and removal services. Love this plugin.

Love the easy color coded list of security items to look into , fix, etc.

Has blocked lots of unwanted logins and send reports when it has actively blocked IP.
