Most comprehensive security plugin

Some easy to implement safety nets
By , for WP 4.3

I like the quick setup and the automated backups... I feel like my sites are safer (I hope so). The user interface could use a bit of polish, especially for newbies - there are a LOT of settings.

Works for me
By , for WP 4.2.3

This plugin does what it says and I have had no problem with it that were not very easily resolved (even for me) and it has been quite effective for my site!

good stuff

thanks guys, like what your doing

Easy and thorough
By , for WP 4.2.3

Easy to set up, great feature with the dashboard list of suggested items to add, divided into groups of priority. Extensive, but with a user friendly panel that makes it easier to get an overview. So far my go-to plugin for added security.

does it!

No probs, no hacks so far ;-)
On my wish list: an export of settings to make further setups easier.

Great work

Works like a charm!

Fantastic plugin, just lacks some support
By ,

This has pretty much everything you'd need from a security plugin. Well structured, easy to use and most importantly bold text identifying notices where you are about to do something destructive. For many less experienced users I imagine the latter would be extremely useful.

However, the support unfortunately lacks a bit - they responded to a thread once and refused to update beyond that, leaving me (and another user) having to figure out the issue without them.

Works great

Generally no problem except when upgrading from the earlier version to this one. Was almost locked out of my account, but managed to retrieve it. Other than that, it works well.
