Badly needed...
By , for WP 4.2.2

WP is not very secure, but this plugin adds some much needed security reminders, tools, and monitoring that really help tighten things up. Many thanks to the developers for making WP security so easy.

I have tested this plugin with many themes and environments. It is solid. Keep up the great work.

I would say one of the best plugins in the wordpress family.

Awesome plugin

Fantastic plugin, just lacks some support

This has pretty much everything you'd need from a security plugin. Well structured, easy to use and most importantly bold text identifying notices where you are about to do something destructive. For many less experienced users I imagine the latter would be extremely useful.

However, the support unfortunately lacks a bit - they responded to a thread once and refused to update beyond that, leaving me (and another user) having to figure out the issue without them.

Great time-saving application

iThemes has prevented us manually configuring security for our sites, this is simply spectacular.

Ithemes Security works great, is easy to use, and covers all the bases. My website is much safer with it installed, I would not build another website without it! I love it! - John
