New upgrade is junk. Server 500 errors
By ,

New upgrade is junk. Creates a completely different version of .htaccess file, and as soon as you try to add IP to one of the lists it'll crash with Server 500, both admin AND your site being unavailable. The only solution is to either delete or overwrite .htaccess with backup.

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.

A VERY USEFUL Plugin!!! :)

I'm really surprised by the number of queries for files I've re-named or admin login attempts from Russia, China and other foreign countries - all thwarted by this handy plugin. great work!

I found this plugin after one of the sites I work on was hacked. Followed all the instructions to get it set up and tighten the security on that site and the attempts to get in have fallen from 50+ a day in December to 0 per day most days now. It's become one of the first plugins I install with any new setup.
