Exhaustive & Solid WP Security
By , for WP 4.0

This beast provides so many weapons from its arsenal to battle vulnerabilities that you won't have to look any where else. Agreed that you can't guarantee 100% security but with this plugin, you can have a sound sleep and worry less about your site getting compromised. Special kudos to the iThemes team for turning it into much more user friendly.

Nice, but too many updates
By , for WP 4.0

The plugin is great, but the many, many updates that keep coming are a real pain. It consumes a lot of time, especially if you ave several sites running this software. An option to update automatically would be helpful although I don't even know if that is possible...

Excellent plugin

TO REPORT A BUG with iThemes Security version 4.4.9 and 4.4.11
By , for WP 3.9.2

I would like TO REPORT a BUG with iThemes Security version 4.4.9.
After installing iThemes Security version 4.4.9 with WordPress 3.9.2 in the Dashboard I got the Medium Priority message ‘A user with id 1 still exists Fix it’. But this it is not True. I fixed this ‘A user with id 1 still exists’ with iThemes Security two months ago, but now with iThemes Security version 4.4.9 the message has appeared again, but this it is not true because I checked the User Table and it is not true and there is not a user with id = 1.
Today I installed iThemes Security version 4.4.11 but the bug is not fixed and I still have in the Dashboard the Medium Priority message ‘A user with id 1 still exists Fix it’, and this is false.
Thanks for your support.

Works beautifully! I maintain another site for an organization. They had hundreds of spam logins registered. When I realized it, and installed this plugin, and BAM! They instantly stopped. Now when I check the logs, there are only about 10 a day being caught. Excellent program! Thank you!

Does its job and does it well

It is amazing just how many threat attempts a WP site gets. Without the knowledge, you may be vulnerable. Highly recommended.
