Worked great - love it in Jetpack
By , for WP 4.2

This was a great plugin and nice to see it as part of the Jetpack plugin now.

Nice work Automattic in picking this up.

Nice idea. Message in Red says BruteProtect will conflict with Yoast SEO XML Sitemap.

Great plugin!

This is a must use plugin. I install it on every site that goes live under my watch. Well done all involved. Heres hoping you all die rich and happy!

Great idea - crowd-sourced protection against BruteForce attacks
By , for WP 4.1

This WP plugin is a great idea - crowd-sourced protection against BruteForce attacks. Of course, the comprehensiveness of the database of attackers depends on everyone installing the plugin - but that's how crowd-sourcing works. So come on guys - do your bit and install it :-)

Default with every installation!

Every time I install wordpress I run a certain series of actions. On of the first, ever since I've found out about bruteprotect is adding BP as a plugin. On every website I install for my customers I've installed it, as well as on my own websites.

This plugin should be included as a standard plugin for WordPress! By far the most usefull plugin ever.

Really well

Thank you for this plugin.

Plt maintain the availability of this plugin for the people who do not want any Jetpack or for those or the site does not work well with Jetpack. Or integrate it directly on WP, I think it would be the best solution for all.

Stops bots in their tracks

Brilliant! For the last few weeks my VPS has been grinding to a halt because of brute force bot attacks. Despite installing various plugins the problems continued. Then I installed BruteProtect across all sites and since then I've not had a single warning from WordFence and everything has been running smoothly. Excellent plugin, thanks guys :)

Yes ;-)

What a time waster to deal with those stupid attacks; what a waste of adrenaline!
...not anymore so it seems.

Just installed it today for 11 websites.
I like the idea of having a centralized database/blacklist, shared with all users.

Centralized updates is a great idea; not sure yet if I can trust this without manually checking the updated websites.

Is working great

Started blocking IP addresses from day one I installed it.

Easy protection plus alerts whenever site is down
By ,

Easy-to-use protection. I also like the way it keeps tabs on my hosting service, too. It sends me an email whenever my site goes down, then it sends me another message when the site goes back up.
