Since I started using it I've no problems, and with a lot of functions and configurations

It has a serious bug/increases the website loading time

iThemes Security plugin sent me more than 100k notification emails in the past few days with a Site Lockout Notification. After trying to alter the plugin settings to have it stop doing that, I ended up uninstalling it all together and deleting the files. But even removing the plugin was not enough, I still receive the same amount of emails from the plugin regarding the site lockout notification. It has a serious bug and this adds slowness to the website. The support has been completely unresponsive for almost a week now.

There are other other options out there, I'm using now Wordfence Security and it is more straightforward and faster than this. And the plugin support replied to me almost immediately...

Great plugin!
