Really good, thorough, well-explained security plugin
By , for WP 4.1

Works very well. Adds an excelelnt layer of security. I've enabled some of the more advanced features without a hitch (like renaming the default /wp-admin login).

Very pleased with the plugin.

Thanks for the support helping me and other to keep strange people out of destroying my site. Before I had a lot of hacker looking around. Now I have them out of the fens. Thanks to iThemes Security.

Blocks you right after install - and after uninstall + SSL epic mess
By , for WP 4.1.1

Clicking the "Temporarily Whitelist my IP" blocks you, and you have to manually edit the DB to unblock.

Also, email notifications don't work whatsoever. They never have, so I assume they never will.

Do not suggest this to anyone that doesn't know how to manually delete SQL entries.

So, I try to add SSL to my site. This plugin created an epic mess. It basically hijacks the SSL settings of the site, so that when you enable https, it creates an endless redirection loop.

Being annoyed as **** at this plugin now, I disabled it... and now I can't login to WordPress at all anymore.

Is there a negative star option? Please?
