Easy and awesome to use. Hopefully there will be more input coming from the community to keep it up to date and our websites safe.

everyone needs an easy back up tool, this is it.

Better than most other free security plugins
By , for WP 4.1.1

I have run this plugin on many websites and I think its way easier and better than the other popular security plugins for wordpress out there. It does take a lot of time to setup and you have to make a few third party accounts to setup the entire security. If they made that process better and faster I would rate it 5. Amazing free software. Thank you so much. I will recommend it for all my clients in my business at ComputerArts.dk

I liked this plugin.But I have an problem with this plugin.It has a login screen bug.I saw that if I put wrong information while login it shows no error but a blank div.So I started to experiment with deactivating plugins one by one and check with wrong login information.But iThemes Security plugin locked me out of my site due to too many bad login attempts.I went to my cpanel and delete iThemes Security plugin and I saw that login screen's bug was fixed.iThemes Security plugin was responsible for this.Please fix this problem. :)

Very effective so far
By , for WP 4.1

Very effective so far in reducing the number and severity of issues arising from casual hacking attempts. Its been circumnavigated a couple of times but when used together with Wordfence Its been very good. For sites experiencing lots of DOS and hacking issues we've had to rely on Sucuri.com

Very good plugin for security related issues.

Very good plugin for security related issues.

Great but give some 403 error page in dashobard
By , for WP 4.1

I am satisfied with the global security, honestly it's a great all-in-one security plugin.

But I got some 403 error pages while I am working in my dashboard like multiple posts editing, or sub-site deactivation.

All works well if I deactivate the plugin, but this is wrong when the plugin is activated.

Thank you anyway, great job! Hope you'll fix it soon, I am fully available for providing any information you'll need.
