Does more than expected!

Really great plugin. Pointed out areas of risk I did not think of. Overprotective in some ways, but the great thing is: I can decide how to manage it. Example: I don't want to force my users to change their username to be different than their public name. The risk is that hackers will try to get in by making up URLs with the author name. And they sure do! I found this out because I turned on 404 logging and lockouts. So I've confirmed that they are trying to do this...but I'm also blocking them from doing so without inconveniencing my users. Pretty slick. Thanks for a great plugin.

Solid piece of software

It does indeed block quite a number of common attacks. The scant few minutes it takes to install and configure is a testament to it's thoughtful UI. There's a lot of complexity under the hood but the initial dashboard priority system keeps it manageable. When you do dig farther into the settings, there's a paragraph or so of explanatory text alongside each control. Good stuff!

Amazing free plugin!

Tons of customization options, easy to use, and highly reliable. I am absolutely astounded at how much is available in the free version of this plugin. Well done... thank you! :)

I had had numerous site compromised several times until adding this plugin. More than two months without a single bad login.

Absolutely Essential

This plugin is indispensable if you want to have a secure WordPress site. It smartly prioritizes vulnerabilities by risk factor, and makes the fixes as simple as clicking a button.
