We have been struggling for hacking issue for our clients for a long time and then one day we go this plugin and have been using to our all website to make them secure. This plugin have lots of features starting from admin user id removal to wp prefix change in one click. All features are nice.

Thanks to Authors! Keep the Good Work for community.

Thanks & Regards

Use for it hiding the wp-admin login url
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin has a lot of great features, such as, backup, email notification if there is any change, permision control over users, removing id=1 as admin, tons of it. And is great if your client request is secutiry, this does it all. Nevertheless I mainly use it to hide the wp-admin URL login. So if someone try to login with wp-admin after the web URL there will be just a 404 page. And you can customize login like for example http://www.clienteweb.com/clientlogin

I've used another plugin on a couple of sites, and I think I'll be switching them to iThemes security.

Not just because Christopher is one of my Twitter buds - but because I can get more granular in whom I block without shelling out a load of cash for the Premium version.

And the emails are better - calm reports of what's going on, instead of WARNING! ZOMG THERE'S SOMETHING HAPPENING ON YOUR SITE RIGHT NOW!

I have clients and two grown children. I have enough ZOMG in my life. I don't need false alarms from my plugins.
