Starting to do weird things
By ,

Overall, I've been very pleased with iThemes Security since it was Better WP Security. Right now, however, I'm getting locked out of sites and other strange things happening which I hope they will fix before I need to go elsewhere.

Nice Plugin
By , for WP 4.0

WP security is on the top of my list and so is this plugin. I'd highly recommended this one to you.

I use WP 4.0 - and it's ok too

nice way to keep calm

Works like a charm - trial and error depending on the used theme.
So should you use it? Yes.

Really good
By , for WP 3.9.2

Very very good for what is offered for free. A small niggle at the moment that there is a compatibility issue with the wordpress android app,but apart from that I'm very impressed.

Decent, read on

This plugin does cloud up your .htaccess and should be monitored. I've found duplicate rules in the past. The email backup is priceless, seriously, you should have automated backup for regular safety precautions. There could be much better interfaces for whitelisting and IP blocking. Finding these lists is difficult should they exist.

works well

Great plug-in. Takes a little time to figure out all the settings and tweak it correctly but it offers a lot of great features.

Very extensive / More visuals please
By , for WP 3.8.3

Very extensive options to finetune your security. It's very very good. However, I do feel this plugin needs some more visual representation of your current settings, so you can quickly scan how well your site is protected.

Easy usage

Good defence!

Good but can be better

The best plugin in its category. However some things might be better, for instance memory leask during dabatase backups...
