awesome plugin and support
By ,

Using the pro version of this plugin, it has been awesome so far. One time i had a problem the support was beyond awesome, and i mean to a level you very rarely see these days. I especially appreciate that the plugin can be used on multiple sites and doesn't require renewal of license each year. Not a single conflict with other plugins as of now. Has blocked many attacks, it's a relief to scan through the logs and see how well it works.
Setup is one click in the pro version, but you will want to read the extensive help that is available alongside every function of the plugin, to get a better idea of what's really going on and to make use of the advanced functions. It can be a bit overwhelming at times but in the end you learn much, and i like the idea that the customer is not taken as a sheep that follows the path without questions.
Suggestion to the developer: modernize the graphics of the plugin to make it a bit nicer on the eyes, and do the same for your site. especially lose the fugly flash movie on the features page of the website, it makes you look behind times and will create an impression that the plugin may not be kept up to date if your website isn't (for others, this is completely not true, this thing gets updated every few days).

Don't like it
By , for WP 4.0.1

Installed it and because I used a rename plugin for maintanance mode I wasn't able to login anymore. Took time to adjust this. Theming is bad and overall the settings are not intuitive. Overall, there is a better solution out there which is free and very intuitive.

Great plugin

Not only the plugin is great but the support is greater than the plugin. Thanks a lot

Great support, stopped brute force attacks!

I have used this plugin for many of my sites and it works great. It can be a bit of work to get it setup but it's worth it. It has stopped many brute force attacks and helps me sleep at night.

Not as easy & user-friendly as it claims to be
By , for WP 4.0

I really wanted to like this. The idea, the price and level of protection are great...in theory.

The plugin says that it features one click installation but fails to mention that you'll need to have more knowledge than just click and go for the rest of the software. It is a far cry from intuitive and all the additional info/instructions aren't written very clearly (not for the average lay person).

Several of my plugins were blocked by bulletproof, like broken link checker,(which is fine...I understand that some perfectly harmless plugins can look like potential threats) but the "easy" instructions for resolving the issues weren't so easy to someone who doesn't have advanced knowledge of coding and isn't confident poking around in essential files. You can't even find a simple answer on how to uninstall it...the "easy" (and only) answer I found was to delete the file it created but was provided with no way to actually find said file.

This plugin is not as easy to use as the creators would have you believe. For an intermediate novice, it's intimidating and frustrating to use, even with the documentation. With the help of my host (who was kind enough to help me - the customer service agent is familiar with bulletproof) I was finally able to uninstall.

I hope a more truly user-friendly and intuitive version of this plugin will be rolled out so that those of us with less tech knowledge can still keep our sites safe from hackers. Simplify, simplify, simplify. If you guys can make it a genuinely user-friendly experience I'll be back in a heartbeat.

Awesome support from plugin developer:)

Professional htaccess protection
By , for WP 4.0

This plugin is great. Creates secure .htaccess file out of the box, but you can also add your custom code if you want. Limited login attempts also help to keep my sites secure.

Great security plug-in with superb support
By , for WP 4.0

Had some issues making rewrite rules work for SEO for my site Titles but thanks to the Plug-in author and I had my site working in no time. Highly recommended and Get the Pro version for extra features!

Updates occasionally break site
By , for WP 4.0

3 times I have updated this plugin and lost access to one of my sites. With the most recent one, it was something to do with creating a secure htaccess file. After following the instructions and clicking all the "automagic" buttons, I just got a blank page. Had to revert to backup.

Best Support EVER!
