Thanks for all.

Has already protected me a lot in the past month
By , for WP 4.0

Since installing this when purchasing the host for my new WordPress site, it's already been an amazing defense against a number of would-be hackers. My IP blacklist is huge from people just simply trying to log into my site as "admin". If it weren't for this add-on, I'd never have a clue as so how many attacks I was avoiding.

Definitely get it for some added security!

Saves a lot of work

I have been getting attacks on my website and logging the "deny from" IPs in my htaccess file manually. This program does it all for me, plus much more!

Protects your site. For Real.

This plugin is absolutely great and really gets the job done in protecting your site. It's important today to have a secure site, and this plugin is a must have to be able to protect your site in multiple different ways.

Excellent plugin to keep your site secure

iThemes Security is one of those plugins that just keeps getting better and better. New security features are added regularly. The plugin setup is divided into sections for easier configuration.

What I like best: The Security Status section.

It highlights current issues with your site, divided into High, Medium, and Low priority section. Each security issue has a quick description of the issue along with a "Fix it" button that takes you to the section to resolve the security issue. What could be easier?

If you really want to lock down your site

If you need to get some serious security on your site, I would check this one out. I have used it myself in the past and recommend it to clients I train all the time. It can be as simple or an intense as you want it to be. And know the developer personally, assures me of it's credibility and the fact that it's a solid WordPress plugin.

A must
By , for WP 4.0

This is one of the plugins that I install on every site I make. Has so many useful features to make your site just a little bit safer from all the badguys, badgirls and badbots out there.

good job!

It just works

I use the iThemes Security plugin in combination with a couple of other solutions*, to keep my site secure.

There is no such thing as a silver bullet. But iThemes Security is straightforward, and easy to implement. Just take it one step at a time and follow the intuitive prompts when setting it up.

*Incapsula Secure CDN, Updraft plus, and the Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin.
